    to say. I've tried to describe the situation as accurately as possible without going on interminably. We had a five year long relationship during which things deteriorated notably during the last year or so. Once it hit that real downward spiral, things started getting worse quickly. As I mentioned, I had some very serious money problems, so I wasn't able to just leave. In fact, towards the end, he probably knew that I'd leave if I had enough money.

    If I had asked my parents to borrow money earlier, would the have given it to me? I don't know.

    I think it's important to understand how a relationship that starts out okay can go down hill slowly. At what point did it become abusive? Was it really only those last few weeks? Probably not, but it's a slow slide and the exact moment is hard to pinpoint.
