I've been married 23 yrs to the same woman. We married when we were 19 yrs old. I can tell you that marriage takes work. You have to take the good and the bad. After saying this whenever physical abuse is done by either party it is a sign that something is really wrong with the person. You have to lay ground rules that physical abuse will NEVER be done. I have no idea why Terrence and Michelle are divorcing. But I do know that divorce is such a shame. It really does hurt people. I've never seen a person who was completely ok with it. Even when a person feels relieved they still feel sadness because divorce is the death of a dream.

I HAVE NOTICED THAT ON MANY STORIES ABOUT AFRICAN-AMERICAN CELEBS, SOME PEOPLE CONSTANTLY COMMENT :

"WHO IS HE / SHE ?"
"HE'S / SHE'S A NOBODY"
" I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHO HE /SHE IS "
" NEXT TOPIC .... "

THESE POSTERS ONLY SAY IT ABOUT THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN CELEBRITIES.
HOW DOES ANYONE OF ANY RACE NOT KNOW WHO TERRANCE HOWARD IS ????

THE QUOTES MENTIONED ABOVE ARE CLEARLY VEILED RACIST COMMENTS.

After what should have been a one night stand, he persistently called and turned it into a call girl session...

First of all , no one should be under or give the impression that women (and some men) of every race have not been the victem of battering by a significant other, whatever or whoever that may be. Black women included. Having been in an abused womens shelter as a counselor I saw women of every nationality. That was 30 years ago and I do not believe things have changed much except gotten worse. Also, then and as far as I know, there are no such places of refuge for men up and to this day.
no one deserves to be put down, run up on, cursed at, chased, threatened with harm, slapped, shoved, thrown down, thrown against a wall, etc, hit with hand,foot, object, had hot things thrown or poured on them, been stabbed, or killed in silence or in front of their children. THINK ABOUT THESE THINGS AND JUST DON'T DO THEM OR KEEP QUIET ABOUT IT WHEN IT HAPPENS TO SOMEONE ELSE PLEASE. BECAUSE IF YOU THINK IT CAN'T HAPPEN TO YOU, YOUR FOOLING YOURSELF. From someone who has seen it firsthand from beginning to end and the end usually isn't a good one.

Also, abuse is usually a learned behaviour and so it can be unlearned if the abuser is willing to work very hard to become the person they should be and the abused doesn't take them back until there is a long period of time after the abuse and if they do get back together the abuser makes even the slightest move toward the former behavior, they give up on that relationship.

Statistics show that most people who batter, or have violent or controling personalities do not hardly ever change unless their motivation is high enough. This behavior is much like molesters and rapists and such. keep this in mind when or if you decide to take one back.

As to Terrence Howard, he has sufficient motivation but not enough self control to latch on to that motivation. He is enjoying the good life too much right now and can't be bothered to do whats right. Mabe he will snap out of it and come to his senses. I would certainly enjoy seeing him on TV or Movies more if he did. Perhaps that is why the movie deal fell through. Someone was trying to tell him something before it was too late.
I wish him the best in gaining control over his anger problems.
