Why would a woman stick to a man?
Relying on a partner for emotional, spiritual, or financial support is not new. It has served its purpose since the beginning of mankind. Some people feel more comfortable in the role of giver, while others feel more comfortable in the role of receiver. It is when the balance in the relationship tips and one party is demeaned, abused, or mistreated that the relationship needs intervention.
Despite the great strides women have made throughout history, many women still stick to a partner. to the point that they do not truly live their own lives, and put their partner first. There are many root causes for this behavior: These include:
Poor role models
Chemical or alcohol abuse
Destructive behaviors that skew judgement
Poor relationship skills

"By taking control of her own behavior, the Sticky Girl gains control of her entire life. Blaming partners does nothing to change her situation. Partners come and go. She has only herself when all is said and done.She needs to discover why she does what she doe, and learn from past partners, in order to make better choices in the future," May Woodworth
