I was thinking the other night, we know that rapest, child molesters and abusers have to register right. Because people have a right to know. Well how come Domestic Violence Offenders dont? I mean seriously isn't it just as dangerous to have a men or sometimes a women living next door that beat their ex! The reason I ask is because if I really knew what kind of person my ex was, you know really had proof that it wasn't just his exes being jealous then maybe things would've been different. I thought about this because my ex is who is almost 27 is dating an 18 year old high school drop out who seems to be oblivous to the fact he has a domestic history with his past 3 exes all in which he has kids with! She's set on the fact that he isn't in jail and that were all liars. I would love to warn her, because I know he wont change and he will eventually do the same thing to her but she's not going to listen to an ex anymore than I did. Bottom line Domestic Violence is serious and people have a right to know! Am I alone on this?

I just found out my alcoholic, violent ex's gf who he's been with for the last 2 or 3 years have moved in together and she's expecting a baby. I never dared tell her what he did to me but I assume he's treating her right. He still doesn't miss a single opportunity to make my life harder. Why? Why did he ruin my life and not hers? What's wrong with me?

I totally agree too! I wanted to warn my ex's new girlfriend, especially as she has a daughter who is roughly the same age as mine. But I didn't dare for fear of repercussions. I was worried about what my ex would do if he found out and I was afraid that his girlfriend wouldn't listen to me as my ex likes to make me out to be unstable, hysterical and a liar.

i so agree with you. my x of 6 years has just been in court to day over breacj of his order witch he had for dv, i dont think there is enought surrport or it is taken seriously by the courts.he walked out of court to day free and all the orders were dropped. and he is now free to come near my house and even locked on the door and i cant do anything about it. it was is word against mine. i felt like i torn open by his layer and i feel completly let down by the courts if id of know he had done this before i would ranfg the other way.

you know what though, for some girls it wouldnt matter. my daughters father is 31 & dating a 22 who has a 2 or 3 daughter...about 3 weeks ago she told me they broke up b/c had punched her & fractured her orbital & she almost went blind. she was emailing telling me how smart i was to keep my daughter from him & all that, but now she is back w/him. i have been in her shoes & done the same, but now that i am out that situation, i wonder what i was ever thinking. some people dont take warnings...

wow i agree with you 100%!!! i was 19 when i got with my ex, who was 27. i was completely clueless of the reality of who he was until I got pregnant with my son & saw first hand the truth of what he was. They really should have to register!! my ex is thankfully locked up on habitual domestic violence charges & aggrevated stalking so itll be a little while before he bothers anyone, but he'll be out again one day... wish there was some way to warn the female population of his evil ways
