Wisconsin Lawmaker Thinks Women Are Better Off Beaten Than Divorced | Care2 Causes

SL L.--If you ever had to live in an abusive situation, you might not agree with Pridmore. I married my first husband because he was a real charmer. He was the one who could sell a refrigerator to an Eskimo. That is who he was until we were married. I endured almost 17 years of his abuse. Why did I stay? There were many reasons. Among them was religion. My religion at the time did not allow divorce. I firmly believe that, if we had not divorced, I would have been killed in time. Still, it was him who left me. What he said to the kids? "Your mother isn't the feisty Irishman I married." Of course I wasn't. He beat it out of me, not only physically, but verbally as well. And those scars don't heal as fast or as well. Until you have walked in my shoes, don't judge me. Pridemore is just one more Republican who wants to keep women barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen.
