Recently, I read on a male celebrity blog that he knew more women that were more upset about their boyfriends/husbands cheating on them than they were about these men hitting them. I commented and questioned the kind of company he kept.
Still, though his statement may have been a mere conversation starter, sadly, there is an element of truth in his statement. I've witnessed it, not in my own personal life, but through interactions with friends. Too often, regardless of race or economic standing, women feel a piece of a man is better than no man at all. But what profit a woman to gain a man and lose her soul?
