This isn’t a fair assessment. While it’s not mentioned in this story, it is in others. My ex-husband had a history of violence both towards me and around me, hence why I planned on not even telling him until he was served with divorce papers. Telling someone who’s a domestic abuse survivor that they aren’t “emotionally mature” because they chose very pointedly to keep a distance from their former abuser is a fucked-up judgment. Keep your judgments to yourself unless you know the whole story.
