On what was going on in the marriage to Kordell
Abuse. Physical and mental.
On whether or not he actually hit her:
Yes. There were several different occasions that this happened.
On how the frequent the physical abuse was:
When you’re in an abusive situation, it just kind of builds, and it starts to get worse and worse. And people ask me, why didn’t you tell anybody or call the police or what have you? I just thought that I could make it better. I honestly thought after each situation that I would change this or I would change that, and therefore the outcome wouldn’t be the same. It doesn’t work like that.”
On how she feels now about being abused:
I’m still realizing now that a lot of what happened, it wasn’t my fault. A lot of women who are in situations like I was in, I wanted to make it better. I was praying every day. I was cooking. I was smiling. The outside appearance was as if nothing was happening. Even though you’re being abused, you still love that person, you’re just trying to love them through it. And you’re trying to pray them through it and you’re not realizing that you can’t change a person, they have to change themselves.
