Re: Secret BF'ing without DH knowing?
You're a really good friend. There are lots of nice, strong, smart women who end up in abusive relationships. I do not think it is a cultural thing. I think that emotionally abusive relationships are also easier in a way to get trapped into - if someone hits you, that's really obvious. But if they are chipping way at your self esteem over time, that's harder to see. And it could be just that area of her life. Clearly she is not that strong if she can't stand up to her husband on something as basic as feeding her child her own milk.
I really hope she can resolve this issue in a healthy way for her family.
