In case some of you missed this comment from the LW of this morning’s column, “He Beat Me Up, But I Still Agreed to Marry Him,” I’m re-posting it here:
Had an appointment with a Women’s Shelter. We are putting together a plan. […] All of your advise, support and encouragement has pushed me to do something about this. Thank you all again so much for all your care. Honestly, this day will change my life/future now and it’s all thanks to all the kind people who replied.
Hopefully the LW will continue to get the help she needs and will remove herself from her dangerous situation, and with any luck, she isn’t the only person who will benefit from all the words of support and encouragement from all of us. Good job, everyone. And to the LW: please keep us posted on how you’re doing. I know you’ll be in many of our thoughts.
