I was recently taking in a horror movie with my son when he suddenly made an amazing remark, "It's not so scary anymore, because we've seen the killer." How true that statement is in every aspect of life. True horror and real fear is really the fear of the unknown. The less we know about the thing we fear, whatever it is, the scarier it is. This seems to be the main secret that those folks who make horror movies use so effectively.
Which is exactly the situation facing so many unfortunate women today. There are so many married women facing this fear that the odds are high that you who is reading this article, could be one of them. You may be one of those unfortunate women stuck in an abusive marriage mainly because of fear. Understandably you find it difficult to get out, because while you are terrified about the abuse and violence, you are actually more terrified of the "unknown" situation of being out of that marriage and having to go through divorce proceedings. Your fear of this unfamiliar situation far outweighs your fear of abuse. And sadly, for this reason you continue to stay despite the abuse and violence.
Actually by staying in a violent and abusive marriage, you are endangering your very life, as chances are that one of these days, it could easily end up in tragic consequences for you.
Making the effort to get some knowledge on divorce and what you can do to ensure that you do not leave your abusive marriage with scars that extend to your financial situation could be the beginning of real freedom for you.
You do not have to risk your life in an abusive marriage anymore if you can gain enough knowledge about how to secure the next stage of your life. This is the knowledge that will free you from the fear of the unknown that is keeping you in a marriage that you really should have gotten out of a long time ago.
You will quickly learn that there is really nothing to be so frightened about and that when you learn a few important facts you suddenly find yourself with many more realistic options and possibilities. Knowledge is indeed awesome power.
