Our expert says:
I think the role of the expert should usually NOT be to tell people what to do ( except were the person perhaps doesn't recognize that they are in real danger ) but to get them to consider the situation they are in, to weight the risks and benefits, and to make a wiser and better informed decision than otherwise.
And the major factor keeping many people in bad relationships, is actually not money ( though obviously you're right that in many situations lackm of moeny limits a person's alternatives, there are also various agencies whioch can help with finding alternative accomodation, jobs, etc. ) In a situation such as you describe, clearly it would indeed be very difficult for a woman in that situation to eacaoe --- difficult but possible.
And another aspect to the point you raise, is that especially in these times, no woman ought to allow herself to become that vulnerable, and should instead ensure that she has some money of her own, qualifications and potential jobs, rather than giving up all those opportunities just for a marriage.
