Lauren thought marriage meant taking the rough with the smooth. She’d suffered years of verbal and physical abuse at the hands of her husband, but always blamed herself for his actions. It takes a great deal of courage to leave a domestic violence situation but when Lauren’s children were threatened, she had to do something.
