What's up with women taking up with violent people? Dating and marrying someone convicted of a violent crime? Are times that hard? That is a very bad decision, often with devastating consequences. Jennifer Hudson's family was murdered. Who is at the center of it? The brother-in-law who was convicted of attempted murder and carjacking. Those are the qualities that we look for in a spouse? A father figure for a child, and a boy at that? A piss-poor decision that will have negative consequences for a lifetime.
