Cutiecat,

I think the answer probably involves the word "maturity." "Some people is....some people ain't......and it don't make no nevermind how old they is."

I remember when I sailed on Celebration in the 90's. I was at the pursers desk one morning waiting in line. The woman in front of me was demanding to be moved to another room. She was yelling about the horrendous fight the couple in the next cabin was having. Describing slamming and banging and lots of yelling and crying. I felt bad for all involved but as the day went by it left my mind. Later my friends and I were in a lounge having a drink. There was a woman sitting in the corner alone and crying. She was swollen and bruised from head to toe. The conversation that I had heard came ruhing back to me. I wondered where the husban was, if he was in custody or was tis guy still loose on the ship. So sad.

That is horrible. I can't imagine how human beings can treat each other so badly.

But it's also hard for me to imagine anything being so bad that I would ever jump from a ship. That being said, I've never had anything happen to me that would make me think that way, so I am a bit pre~biased.

And when I ask what is wrong with people it seems a majority of the time someone was doing something stupid when they went overboard.

People tell me all the time when I leave "don't fall overboard." I have never, not one time, even come close. I don't lean over the rail, I don't stand on the rail, I don't do stupid tricks on the balcony, and I don't drink too much. If people would just a slight amount of reason there would be less and less going over...

Cutiecat,

As I said previously, hon; it's a lack of maturity. When you combine that with stupidity, it only gets worse.

I generally, following an over 27 year career in law enforcement have said, "Any man who raises a hand to a woman should be horsewhipped. But should a woman stay with a man who raises their hands against them, then I quickly lose both my patience and most of my sympathy.

And I personally don't take that "a victim of long term abuse" reasoning, either. The very first time he raised his hands against her, she should've walked out AND NOT GONE BACK!" If she didn't, then IMHO, she should expect what surely will some day follow.

Todd

Very well said Todd....
May I add, don't stay together for the children either. They are seeing what is going on and it may just form a pattern for them. Like it's okay to hit a spouse.

Time out is for adults also.
