Remarkably, women in many countries are converting to Islam at a greater rate than to any real faith. I'm surprised they're not a bit more cautious about choosing a faith that raises men who can't find a better way of convincing women to marry them. I'm also surprised that men like this don't die in their sleep more often - it seems like a just or even mild response to torture.
If the women had more reliable ways to support themselves via education and employment, they probably would be less inclined to marry or stay in abusive marriages. But their social system is set up to keep women as virtual captives or slaves. I suppose the women could starve. Many choose suicide as it's quicker.
