Third time he did this again. A week later she had a stroke that has left her paralyzed for life on the right side. The doctors said that it was likely caused by the repeated strangling. They can't be 100% certain, but there are very few resons an otherwise healthy 20 year-old has a stroke.
Good point. Any injury to the neck that causes bruises is serious enough to cause real damage to the important blood vessels that run through the neck. One time of near-strangling should be enough to end any relationship. Any man who does this one time, will do it again, and again, and again. I don't care if the woman thinks "he didn't mean it". He did it. He meant it.
