I hope someone can help me.
My best friend is a sweet girl and just got married. Unfortunately, her husband is abusive (physical and emotional). I have witnessed it as well and it broke my heart. He is so big and I felt so bad that I couldn't help her.
She now told him she wants a divorce. All her family and friends are behind her decision.
Now an aunt of her husband called her and told her that if she is getting divorced, she cannot know what the next guy might turn out. And that he might even be worse than her husband. She is now confused what to do.
Is there someone here who can help me with a response to her that makes her see that staying is not a good decision?
She is very sensitive and quickly influenced..
I feel so bad for her because I know she deserves SO much better. I even was in a abusive relationship and shared my story with her. I got out and now have the sweetest boyfriend. She all knows it but still she doesn't seem convinced. I also brought up the having kids thing and what if he hurt them..
I hope someone can help me with what to tell her.. Especially in response to what that aunt told her.
Thanks so much in advance.
