Could be for lots of reasons.<br />
love is blind.<br />
Trapped with no where to go.<br />
When I was a young teen I asked my mother why it took so long to get rid of her husband and she told me that is how long it took to find a job that paid enough to look after us.<br />
Some would call her an idiot for staying so long with him.<br />
So don't ******* judge if you dont know all the facts.

i believe this question was written out of curiosity not through any negative judgement passed on your mother who im sure the author doesn't know...

Best Answer

I think they hold on to the idea of what it was like when they first got together and have a glimmer of hope that someday it will be like that again

Best Answer

people are afraid of change and are creatures of habit

Best Answer

I can't answer that, as I do not understand that mentality, nor have I ever wanted to be married.

Best Answer

Most times, it will be because of their children. I know a lady who refuses to divorce her husband because she has said that although she could find a better man in a heartbeat, she couldn't find a better dad for their kids. He IS a great father to their kids. That's how much she loves her kids.

Best Answer

i think its all of the above....maybe the alternative for them is losing money and the priveledges that the family has gotten use to. or being alone...or maybe the guy is a great companion just not a good husband. in the end its a personal decision...while the kids are doing good. when the kids arent people need to speak up.

Best Answer

They've probably been in a marriage so long, they don't know how not to be part of one.

Best Answer

Mabe its easier for them to stay put and harder to make a move so it could be laziness.

Best Answer

Could be that they don't mind, they don't look for romance, they're just co-tenants, helping each other out.

Best Answer

lol..very funny!

Best Answer

because they are tired of losing love ones anymore.

Best Answer

love love love could make a person go completely blind about what is wrong and right.

Best Answer

i think its low self esteem.

Best Answer

Money, safety, security, stability, etc... My mother stayed in a relationship like this for many years because she didn't think she could survive as well on her own. As equal as the world has become, it can still be a frightening place for a woman without a man, even if he isn't very good.

Best Answer

Because she invested every damn bit of her being into that relationship.<br />
She feels ruined. But wants to live and die in the ruins of this marital palace.<br />
That's Why. If something jolts the woman out of her she could rise. Rise like a phoenix from the ashes her husband created when he took all her love into his life.<br />
<br />
If I Rise
