10 Reasons Women Stay in Bad Relationships

3. She wants children. Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux recently announced their engagement, which means everybody will be watching for Jennifer’s baby bump in the coming months. A victim of constant pregnancy speculation over the past several years, Jennifer has shared that in regards to having a baby, “I still kind of go with, if it happens, it happens. I'm calm and peaceful with whatever the plan is. It's not something where I'm going, 'I gotta have a kid!'" Given she’s 43, time will tell if Jennifer is tying the knot with Justin for true love or for babies.

4. She doesn’t want to hurt her partner. Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp, while never married, enjoyed a long romantic relationship and became raised two children together. The couple has gone their separate ways. Vanessa still speaks glowingly of her former partner and it’s apparent the love between these two was real, but given Johnny has been living for the bachelor for some time now, it’s likely there was something was very off-track in this relationship. Ultimately, Vanessa has decided that “Love is the strongest and most fragile thing we have in life. Nothing is ever for sure, but when something in love doesn't work from the beginning, it's never going to work. Don't push it."

5. She doesn’t want to hurt her children. Several years ago, everybody watched as the relationship between Kate and Jon Gosselin crumbled. Any viewer of the hit television show Jon and Kate Plus Eight could tell trouble had been brewing between these two for some time. No doubt that raising eight small children is difficult, but between Kate’s belittling of Jon and Jon’s playboy ways, divorce was inevitable. Kate has acknowledged her biggest fear about the divorce was being a single parent and hurting her children.

6. She thinks things will get better. Kourtney Kardashian’s relationship with longtime boyfriend Scott Disick has been marked by Scott’s excessive drinking and partying, and the couple’s hesitancy to marry. In fact, in 2011, Kourtney shared with People magazine that she thinks Scott is “the one”, but she is not “100 percent” yet. Scott has sought professional help for his alcohol abuse issues, and recently the couple welcomed their second child, daughter Penelope Scotland. It seems that Kourtney is hoping that Scott’s wild days are behind him!
