She's in the process of being divorced there's only certain. Criteria that -- had a lot to consider -- to do so want in terms support while back on her feet. What you see -- lot -- women who work at these shelters across all but stated that. Typically the wage earner on the primary. Probably waiter is that is the abusing out.
