Reduced options = no choice but to stay


Reduced options = no choice but to stay

A woman without higher education and with no career prospects is less likely to leave an abusive or dysfunctional relationship simply because she has fewer choices outside the marriage institution.

Just because a marriage is “successful” statistically does not indicate that it is functional or healthy. For example, the majority of battered women do not cheat or leave their abusive spouses. Whether Noer advocates the systematic beating of women to propagate statistically successful marriages? That’s his call.
