Pretty Woman

I think that the world is filled with pointless laws – many of which are outdated, or serve no one (or worse, serve the wrong people).

The Ex Files: You Were My Sun, You Were My Earth Vol #8

To help with understanding why it’s not as easy as people think to “just leave”, I will be writing a few memoir collections on my abusive ex. From here on in, I will refer to my ex as Ben, after Ben Affleck, because I have an irritational hatred for Ben Affleck. Seriously.
