Boyfriend putting his hands on your mother

Miss Nessa Miss Nessa
I was sitting back and watching a show, and a women was confronting her daughter because the daugters boyfriend attaced the mother. Breaking her jaw and cracking her eye socket. Her daughter won't leave her boyfriend, even though she knows he did this. The daughter and the boyfriend have been together for a year and are currently pregnant.

What would you do?

I personally think i would have killed him. Nobody touches my mother, i don't even allow my dad to raise his voice to her. If i think it's going to step out of hand between my dad and my mom I step in. My boyfriend isnt that stupid, and he isnt a violent person. Pregenant or not i would leave my boyfriend if this happened. I feel if he can hurt my mother, what keeps him from hurting me.

What would you have done if you was in the daugters spot?

I would not stay with a man who would do such a horrible thing to my mother, no matter whether I was pregnant or not. I feel the same way you expressed - if he's willing to do that to my mother, what's stopping him from doing it to me or anyone else? I think I would get a restraining order.

Leave him. He obviously isn't man enough to control his temper, and believes it's ok to hurt women, so who in their right mind would stay with someone like that and wait to be next? And who would want him to be an influence in their child's life? Not me.

"What would you do if you was in the mother's spot?"
Press charges for assault and anything else I could think of.

I'm wondering if the daughter knows and has been hit by him before. I'd think that if a person is physically violent like that with one person, that it'd only be the one time (w/o drugs and alcohol)

Exactly. Someone who attacks that violently has done it before. Even if it weren't such a violent attack, I would end it, press charges, and all that jazz. That's a deal breaker.

It's not always that easy to leave if you are in that situation. If you are in a violent situation, you may be afraid of what that person would do if you tried to leave.

I was in an emotionally abusive relationship. I got out, but it gave me perspective. Why was I with him? Why did it take so long to leave? It chips away at who you are, and makes it difficult for function as anything.

I'm lucky that a series of events distanced me enough to break it off, but I can see how people get sucked in.

My mom is no longer living, but if my boyfriend hit ANYONE (with the possible exception of self defense) I would not stay with him and would definitely call the police.

I would have killed the guy, or at least beat the living shit out of him and dumped his ass. NO ONE lays a hand on my mom, she's the one that gifted me with life and I always protect her at all costs.

"What would you do if you was in the mother's spot?" I would have called the police and confronted my daughter. If she refused to leave the guy then it would leave me no choice but to cut her out of the family.

That's the problem with some people- they choose their lovers over their family. I am very lucky to have an amazing husband that loves our family dearly (both my family and his own),

For me, my family comes first! They are the ones I know I can fully rely on and will be there for me no matter what.
If a partner of mine EVER touched one of my family members, he would be HISTORY!

Blood is thicker than water!!!

Plus if he would do that to the mother, what will he do to the gf and the child.

LOL My husband would love to slap the taste out of my Mother's mouth and in many ways she deserves it. She is, however, more than capable of defending herself and he isn't the type of guy who will hit a woman.
