Married life can often lead to unexpected complications. It can take years for a couple to come to terms with whether or not they’re ready to spend their lives together.
Getting to know someone well takes time; you have to experience as much of them as possible, for better or worse, the good and the bad, to know if the love is real. Marry too quickly, and you might get killed.
Lynsey was a young girl, barely ready to start her life, only 17 when she was pregnant.
She had her whole life ahead of her and no time to live it. That’s when she met Mitchell, 20, who married her after seeing one another for only five weeks.
Unfortunately, their marriage did not last long. They didn’t take the time to know one another.
If they did, Lynsey would have known about Mitchell’s unhealthy violent outbursts. And his desire to kill.
10 Rocky Start
Mitchell was, by first impressions, a very charming man with a lot of potential prospects ahead of him.
He had a stable job and seemed like the kind of guy who would play the family man, as willing as he was to take Lynsey in despite her circumstances.
Lynsey was from a big family and didn’t want to give up her first baby, even though her high school sweetheart gave up on her before she had it. From the get-go, the two were bringing a lot of problems into their new home.
9 Lashing Out
Some of those problems manifested in domestic violence. Mitchell would fly into rages infrequently and would sometimes direct his anger at Lynsey.
She was completely unaware that he even had the potential for it, but Mitchell held a lot of anger inside himself.
He would frequently turn his fury on inanimate objects, but with Lynsey in their shared home, sometimes his fists fell on her instead.
