Pick your poison

If you are a single mother with small children here you are in deep crap. There are few jobs. If you are unskilled, the choices become nearly zero. If you are middle aged or fat, your chances of finding a new mate are slim. You gotta stay with hubby.

A woman I know (but not well) husband attacked a relative (a sexual thing). The family now hates him. Some in the community know about it and more will once he goes to jail. What does the wife do? Stay with a man who you cannot respect and may commit other terrible acts in the future. Leave him and put herself and daughter in poverty the rest of her life. The daughter will likely need to leave school to support the family.

Pick your poison, either way you die inside.
