Here are 7 reasons why a woman will leave a man that she loves.

1. He is cheating.

When a man cheats on his woman, that does not necessarily always mean it is the end, but in most cases, it is. Even if a woman wants to forgive her partner, it does not mean that she can. In many cases, she will not be able to forget and as a result, she will leave.

2. He is abusive.

Unfortunately, most people who will abuse you once will continue to abuse you and the situation will only escalate. So, the only way out for most is to call it quits.
