Another cause for accepting sub-par relationships can be familial role models, says Craig. “Sometimes women feel insecure and don’t know how to respect themselves. They’re tolerating less because they don’t feel they deserve more. A lot of times it’s because their father wasn’t around. Or they saw their mother settle, and felt they had to do the same thing. It’s learned behavior.”
