Can confirm, moving a partner to a location away from all their support networks and family is common. I've had friends moved into the middle of the countryside and impregnated, before they come to terms with them being an abuser 4 years later and having nowhere to go.

I said it because it happened to a friend of mine. He chased her for years, then built her a beauty parlour on a farm in a remote rural area where there was virtually no hope of getting customers. She was basically a prisoner.

I'm literally watching my best friend go through with it right now. She got out of rehab and married a guy twice her age only having starting dating him a week before rehab.

Thinks I'm crazy and jealous she found someone and he's amazing.

Yet they argue every night or most nights. He supposedly has money and gets expensive diners with her but can't afford new furniture as theyre moving intk his moms basement. He works as a tattoo artist. Went with work with covid no mask.

He reads all her messages and responds for her sometimes. And he says she has to cut off all her friends as it's sacrifice and people who are married sacrifice for each other.

I don't know how to get thru to her it's so upsetting she's throwing it all away. He's giving her free tattoos and that's half the reason she's staying I bet. Promising to make her famous. He's semi famous too.

Piece of shit. They started dating cause he hit her up after having a crush on her since she was 16 (she's 24 now) begging to fuck for a free tattoo.

Sorry had to vent it's frustrating watching a Trainwreck and knowing it's coming but unable to stop it.
