Quoting Quiverfull: Avoiding An Abuser?

Quoting Quiverfull: Avoiding An Abuser? February 22, 2015

quotingquiverfullby Natalie from Visionary Womanhood – Deal Breakers: Advice to Unmarried Women (and Daughters) How To Avoid Marrying An Abuser

How can you avoid this? An abuser doesn’t introduce himself like this, “Hello – it’s nice to meet you. I’d like to take you on a whirlwind romance, sweep you off your feet, marry you, and then abuse you until death do us part.” 

They follow in the footsteps of their father, the devil. They enter your world like an angel of light. A thing of beauty and wonder.

They are super-de-duper nice. Like Barney.

They worship the ground you walk on.

They are very religious. Think Ghandi.

They tell you that you COMPLETE them. (Watch out with that one.)

They do good deeds. Like Mother Theresa.

They are charming. Attractive. Kind. Thoughtful. Spiritual.

Often (not always) you will find them in or jockeying for leadership positions.

Often (not always) they are very confident.

Often (not always) they live generously.
