How has our system failed us. One in five women leaving shelters return to live with their abuser

Um.....is it the system's fault or are those women making bad decisions? Why is individual choice never blamed for anything?

If a women chooses to go back to an abusive situation, then she made the decision to leave the shelter, nobody else.

YUP!!! She made the decision hers
But love is blind and a woman who is so dependent on her "man" and I use that term very carefully will go back.
I have seen a woman run with children in the middle of the night from a house to get away from a "man" and then come home the next day like nothing happened.
Yes black eyes and broken arm to boot.
But yes it was her decision.

Ultimately it is whether you want to ascribe it to some condition, disease or syndrome. Ultimately, isn't it the choice of the individual to return to smoking crack or shooting heroin even after they've gotten help at a clinic? Do we blame the clinic? Do we blame the drugs?...or do we place the responsibility on the user? Addiction is terrible but ultimately it is up to the person to decide to use or not use. We can try to help them but to just put responsibility on the addiction doesn't help anyone. You can consider abusive relationships in the same light...and addiction...and we still need to hold the chooser responsible for the choice.
