Do some women choose abusive men?

Women do not actively seek out abusive men. Usually, men who are abusive do not display this aspect of their behaviour until the relationship is established.

It is also important to recognise that for some women domestic abuse will not be their first/only experience of abuse. Experiencing another form of abuse previously can make a woman more vulnerable to other forms of abuse, especially if she has not received the appropriate support.
