I don't get it, either. It's probably rooted in not just McKnight's family history (guessing at least one of his paretns was abusive) but also McCready's. Those are the ties that bind, and what makes bad things seem almost normal. Abuse--verbal and/or physical, is familiar. In some cases, women's whole lives are tied to their abusers, and they literally don't believe they can survive financially, etc., if they leave. But McCready has plenty of money.

Tie this with the romanticized picture that all little girls get shoved into their heads from early on--that true love is the ultimate goal, and the only thing that matters--and you've got a real little potent brew going.
