I received my bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees from elite institutions. When I went on the job market I received three tenure-track job offers from top colleges, one of which was my first choice. Two years into the perfect job, I fell in love, got married, and ultimately gave birth to several healthy children. I learned how to teach and how to publish and was tenured. So, if I'm so smart, why did I remain married to a batterer for 12 years? . . .
