The Eighth Circuit has affirmed the denial of asylum to an applicant (Fuentes) who testified she was unable to leave an abusive domestic relationship in Honduras.  The court noted that Fuentes was able to live safely in Honduras away from her abuser for 5 years before leaving the country, engage in a relationship with another man, and have a child with that other man.  Thus, she had demonstrated that she was unable to leave a relationship with her abuser.
