Nobody ever thinks he or she will end up in a love-less marriage, much less an abusive relationship with serious physical abuse. So why do so many people end up with partners who are either abusive or who can’t provide what they really need?

Preview of new week’s show: We often act as though we have forever to do the things we want to do in life, and we act we though we have forever to fix the relationships we’ve broken that we hope to repair one day.

We’ll take a look at why we often delay repairing the relationships we need — and what we can do about it — next week on Love and Hope.
