    Why do you think some want to be in a relationship even if it isn't a healthy one?

    Humans in general have a need for companionship and will seek it out, even if the companionship is not positive.

    The possible answers to this question are limitless. Having said that - I would say that, in general, people may fear being alone more than they do living in an unhealthy environment.

    There would be many reasons, for some people it would be for financial stability, or they don't feel they function very well as a single person, or they don't know how to leave their unhealthy relationship because of what they may lose, or because they don't want to break apart their family (There could be Children involved) or they think if they stay things will change or get better.

      So true... there are various reasons and no one case is the same.

      These are all valid reasons.  I think in some cases one might be able to list all these reasons together!

    Low self-esteem or lack of self love.
    A mentally healthy and well balanced individual generally has a list of "deal breakers" or things they will not put up with in a relationship. They place a high value on what they have to offer a mate and desire to be with someone who gives as much as they receive, A person who loves, respects, and trust them self will not accept just anyone into their life. They'd rather be alone then deal with drama.

    Without details of a particular relationship, it is hard to say. What comes to mind for me is the fear of being alone or suddenly without income and virtually homeless.  There are always a lot of things to consider as to why someone would stay in a bad relationship.

    Great responses, I love to hear what others think. Dashingscorpio really pinned the closest to my thoughts. That and everyone who mentioned a fear of loneliness and financial struggle.

    Couldn't stand loneliness, need companionship because afraid to make decisions on his/her own. Sometimes due to helplessly in love with the other party. Love is blind, right>?
