Sorry for the lack of updates but my laptop is broken AGAIN :/ πŸ™

While Rihanna and Chris Brown’s reconciliation after an alleged abuse incident has shocked family and friends, domestic violence experts say it’s all too common for a woman to return – often repeatedly. In fact, experts say, it’s unrealistic to expect women not to go back to their abusers, be they husbands or boyfriends, as the victims grapple with feelings of guilt, fear, isolation – even love. “It never surprises me,” says Violent Partners author Linda Mills, who believes therapists and people close to couples in abusive relationships must accept this seemingly fact. “If you start with ‘You shouldn’t go back,’ you very often lose the person [you are trying to help]. They won’t talk to you.” Rihanna, 21, and Brown, 19, reunited last week in Miami about three weeks after he allegedly battered the singer early the morning of Feb. 8 in Los Angeles.
