Ugh — all so true. It’s also why I’ve told my girls that you don’t get married quickly or young. Sad thing is, most people don’t want to hear it. One of my besties was almost strangled by her fiance last summer, in front of her teens, but she’s still with him. We’ve tried talking to her, we’ve let her know we will always have her back. She says it was her fault — you’ve probably heard that before, too. :-( Anyway, I’m so glad you escaped!
