I believe there are a few factors as to why the abused stay…

-They are “addicted” to the abuser and refuse to believe that they are actually in a relationship where there is this cycle of abuse
-They are financially dependent on their abuser
-They are insecure and will give in when the abuser says they are sorry
-They have low self esteem and believe they “deserve” the abuse or caused it
