Rise of Domestic Violence Against Educated, Professional Women

Rise of Domestic Violence Against Educated, Professional Women There is a prevalent belief that women who face domestic violence or are exploited are from the lower rungs of society. This is just a myth. Women across society face domestic violence.

Sure enough, there it was.  Confusion. Mind Boggled.  Not quite sure what to say. Now I’ve been through this many times and it has become one of...

You GAIN (a lot of) weight when you’re PREGO and then it takes forever to lose it.  (unless it falls off you the second that kid comes out) You lose it BUT don’t get “credit” for it.  What the heck!!!
