    But there is a better than even chance she will return to him,,,Sorry to say its a way of life for many,, And she is 40, prob not the first time she has been abused.

    I just hope she is smart enough to stay away form him when she is released from hospital and he tries to say he is sorry and will not ever hurt her again. He will be on the street before she is

    Ambygirl. I think terkel was referring to 678's comment but I agree with you, we dont know how old 678 is and 40 is younger than I am. I'll call anyone typically 15 yrs younger than me "young man or young woman"

    Terkel who rained on your parade???? Yeah, your words say a lot about you!! To me, 40 is young. Could be to rescuefan too. And yes, this guy needs to be in prison. She will be scarred for life now. He deserves some very harsh punishment.

    My thoughts and prayers are with this young lady and that justice will be served on this creep!

    Did you read the story, or do you always patronize all women? The "young lady" is almost 40. At least you believe that the little gentleman should get prison time.

    Words often say more about the speaker than the subject.

    You would think if she was his girlfriend that he would have loved her. Evidently not. You don't do something like this to someone you don't like, much less someone you love.

    How horrible! I do hope and pray this young lady get through this. As for him, I believe he needs some serious prison time.
