Leslie Morgan was on the best-seller list for three weeks on New York Times for her book ‘Crazy Love,’ and Leslie Morgan Steiner’s memoir about domestic violence finally got her noticed but also nearly got her killed.
The book is the recount of her experience regarding abuse she faced from her abusive first husband and why it takes so long for victims to leave their violent husbands or partners.
Leslie was lucky that she lived to tell the story, but for many victims, it is too late.
Leslie is an author, blogger, and businesswoman, who first had her success through an autobiographical article on anorexia nervosa she wrote for the magazine Seventeen, where she received 4000 readers’ letters after it got published.
Steiner went on to work for the same publication in the article department from 1987 to 1988.

As much as it is about the physical abuse, people wonder why it takes so long time for victims like Steiner to finally file for divorce.
Before that let's known more about her married life. As all know Leslie was previously married to her husband named Conor.
She first met her husband on a cold, rainy January night. On the subway, Conor sat next to her and started making an effort to chat with her.
During their conversation, Connor said two things to Leslie, one was that he graduated from an Ivy League School and second was he worked at a very impressive Wall Street Bank.
Those two things set an impression on Leslie. And also his looks where he had big cheeks, wheat-blond hair, and he seemed too sweet.
Soon they got in a relationship and while in a relationship Conor did all the smartest things which created the illusion that Leslie was the dominant partner in the relationship.
And soon, their relationship was bounded by marriage. Leslie felt loved and happy until she saw the real color of her husband.
Divorce she did, but not until she had gone through countless abuses, threats and at one time, even a loaded gun pointed at her head.
There were hundreds of times she could disband that family, like the day he threatened to kill their dog, or when he pushed her down the stairs, but she was hopeful for change, which never happened.
However, she is finally pleased now that the past is behind.
Leslie has already relished twenty years of blissful married life with her second husband now who is just the opposite of her first one.
Their love is over the bounds and are living happily with the three beautiful children they share.

If there is one thing that she has learned from her mistakes from her previous marriage, it is being financially independent.
Had she been one before, she would have ended her relationship with first husband Conor before the abuse went too far.
The tweet below from her a year ago says so much about how the first relationship would have been,
“Incredibly, had I not left my abusive first husband, today would have marked our 28th wedding…”
