Another one bites the dust and the shock of it has been nullified for me. Too many reports of domestic violence ending in tragedy for the woman that one has to take another approach. Can a woman really be saved if the man she is dating decides he is going to kill her for whatever reason he deems justifiable? I really do not think so. Is the key at the beginning of the friendship? Meaning, are you dating a decent man? What is his family background? What has been his level of response if you happen to have a really heated argument? Is your man a quick silver who blatantly tells you he will kill you if you push him? As a woman, do you look at threats as something that he will never follow through on? What if he was a charming man in the beginning then developed into Jack the Ripper as the relationship progressed? Does that scenario exists the majority of time in these killings? Is there anything the woman can do to quit that relationship before it gets to the point where the man feels he controls every breath you take? If he decides you shall breathe no more, then he may very well take your life. How can a woman protect herself from her man who draws that gun, machete or any form of weapon? Should she be equally armed and just take this stance that it is going to be a toe to toe match? Then again, how fearful is she of her man? Should a woman be with a man who she is fearful of? So many questions, yet very few answers.
What is abundantly clear is there are men amongst us, that killing the woman who they once shared a bed with is easy as you say 1, 2, 3. This is one crisis I opine will not be declining any time soon.
