"in a dating and courtship relationship, i would not have you spend five minutes with someone who belittles you, who is constantly critical of you, who is cruel at your expense and may even call it humor. life is tough enough without having the person who is supposed to love you lead the assault on your self-esteem, your sense of dignity, your confidence, and your joy. in this person’s care you deserve to feel physically safe and emotionally secure."

-- Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, 'how do i love thee?'

Oh, that's just so sad. It really is. I really, really worry about people who marry someone who doesnt treat them well. I worry about my Sophie.
