Hi -- I didn't mean to come accross as one of those PC jerks (i am SO not) and I apologize if i did. I don't want to rub salt into your wound Hope, but is divorce not an option? If it's gotten to the point where you feel like this, why are you staying with him? Why are your brothers not findsing this guys and beating the hell out of him? If you were my sister, so help me God the guy would be laid out in intensive care. i have zero patience and tolerance for men like that, they are cowards and deserve no sympathy from anyone. I wish you courage and hope, Hope. Don't let this bastard get the better of you. be safe and seek the help you need -- the lady from New Zealand is on the right track and such organizations exists everywhere... seek one out close to you.
: : Thank you for the reply and I am sorry that you think I am implying this applies only to greeks. I am greek to and I know that this is a big problem for all nationalities.
: : It just so happens that my experience was with a greek boy.
: ** Hope, I don't think you should take that response to heart, but Tony has a point. I think maybe if you hadn't actually mention that your boyfriend is 'Greek' then maybe he wouldn't of been offended. From reading your message it sort of sounds like your asking readers whether what your partner is doing to you is a Greek thing - which I am sure you didn't mean for it to sound that way.......
: Anyway I work for the 'Womens Refuge' which here in New Zealand is an organisation for women who have been verbally & physically abused by men. We are by no means a 'man hating' organisation - hey at the end of the day there isn't anything nicer than a true gentlemen to look after his lady. But if you need to talk to someone please feel free to drop me a line:
: Good Luck
