My girlfriend has a history of violence toward me. I would not stand for it if it weren't for financial dependence on her. I'm on disability and she works full-time, so she obviously makes a lot more than I bring in. She keeps saying it will stop, but it never does... and I recognize this relationship as just another statistic. I'm not blind to the problems. She has threatened me and my family if I do leave, and I'm afraid I won't be able to get a protective order against her for my family AND myself. Keep in mind that I've already had an order taken out against her in the past. I just don't know what to do. Not only that, but I'm afraid of losing my relationships with her parents, whom I adore. What should I do, and how can I develop a safe plan for leaving?
