    Maybe this is why some people stick to shitty situations in life even if they can get out of it? coupled with some attachment to the situation, the person may LIKE the status quo without realizing it. Women who have some memory of how their husbands 'used to be' so it makes it harder for them to leave the abusive relationship they are in now. They are faced with the decision of cutting off something they have invested emotionally in and thus the status quo gets a grip on them. I guess we can't call them daft now, the odds are stacked against them by their own physical brain.
