This individual keeps pleading for her to stay, Josie smooches someone else farewell and leaves. This is a scenario that happens in allot of families but mainly Hispanic homes.
This occurs in Hispanic homes much more then in a other homes because in Hispanic traditions men usually are supposed to do anything; except always be served upon by the ladies of the family. This leads the guys to believe that they will be superior to women and leads to all of them mistreating girls when they don’t get what they want from them. In most scenarios the beatings go on for many years but no person ever really does much about it. The women hang-out at the abused ones property, so as to not allow a chance of abuse to happen again. The men simply tell the abuser to relax out preventing because she doesn’t should have what you are doing to her and that she’s too beautiful to hit.
Eventually the abuser can hit the abused too hard and then while the saying should go, the clips hits the fan. The cops are called all the men get involved and definitely will hold back the abuser. In case the abuser retains acting up they’ll at times beat the junk out of the rouler. The berner will dedicate a night in jail after which he’ll come back a “changed” man. That will usually happen twice and after that the women will certainly leave or perhaps thee person will change after getting discussed to simply by every women in the family and screamed by and pushed around by simply every man.
This is a common thing which still taking place today in numerous homes. It’s an happening that many people have seen during their lives. This will not likely stop occurring any time soon. Maybe in about 1000 years this might end happening, however for now our society is full of an excessive amount of frustration and annoyance. Persons will always seek to get rid of their particular anger and a loved one will most likely be the main one to take all of the abuse. It can just a bad part of being human.
