Why do some women stay in abusive relationships?

A lady was badly beaten last night by her boyfriend. Not the first he will do so...but this time she decided to share what happened to her with a group on BB. She posted a photo of herself in the hospital, and later photos of her battered face. I have all the photos but the lady doesn't want the exposure so I will leave the photos out and just share the first message she put up in the group...
Thanks Everyone... Pls give me sometime I'll get back to u.. I put up d pictures bcos enuff is enuff of all this abuse.. They say they love u but still put u through this. I neally lost my life this morning.. My front tooth fell off and I can't walk.. It took me getting unconscious for him to stop hitting me, before I passed out I begged to be taken to d hospital, I told him I felt like I was loosing my life will he was beating me, that's the last I remember.. I woke up in d hospital
I wish I could share the photos. Incredible sad! A few hours later she put up a text message he sent to her begging for forgiveness..after which people in the group started advising her not to go back to him.

Go back? Should that even be something to debate about? Should we be talking about her going back to him or talking about how to get him arrested for attempted murder?

Why do some women stay in abusive relationships? Why do they go back?

Dear LIB readers: Is this normal?

From a LIB reader:
Dear Linda, please I have a question for other married women on your blog. My husband goes to night clubs every Friday and I want to find out from other married women if this is normal. There's never a Friday night that he doesn't go to one night club or the other to return on Saturday morning. I've only been married for eight months and he has never missed a Friday night with the boys. Should I take this as normal?

Singer Ego Ogbaro's husband loses Camry car to armed robbers

Niyi Ogbaro was robbed at gun point a few nights ago in Lagos. Not only did the robbers make away with the couple's Camry car (like the one in the photo), they also shot at Niyi. Fortunately he wasn't seriously injured.

Now to my question: Why do robbers target mostly Camry cars? Every time you hear that a car was snatched in Lagos, more than half the time it's a Camry. Why?

From a LIB reader
Please is it okay to keep intouch with an ex? My wife thinks its not right and has been fighting me for communicating with my exs. One is married while the other is still single. The married one is the one that calls often. They call to check on me and to ask for advise and I also call them to know how they are doing. I don't think there is anything wrong with it but my wife is fighting me about it. Please will like to know other people's opinion on this. Thanks

Dakulung was to give the head to someone else for ritual purposes, but fortunately the two men were accosted and arrested by men of the SSS following a tip off.
