    Why do women stay or gravitate to abusive people?

    there is a women at work how is in a horrible marriage that would drive any normal women to divorce. But she will never leave him. Then she comes to work with a bunch of pigs, who try to peek under her skirt, tell her to leave her husband, one person was joking around and squirted rubbing alcohol in her eyes. they are constantly making incredibly rude sexual comments and gestures towards her. and everyday she comes in and flirts with these guys. as soon as they leave she complains at how horrible they are but always goes back. I have told her to tell the managers but she never does.

    or maybe she was masochistic, she had this kind of mental illness that finds satisfaction from being mistreated or hurt physically.
