Q&A from a forum in http://www.phrases.org.uk/bulletin_board/4/messages/696.html :
: What the heck does "Better the Devil You Know," mean?
I've heard it in America. Better the devil you know than the devil you don't. Some people reason it's better to stay in a bad situation rather than risk making a change and winding up in a spot that's even worse. Examples, a person might stay with a bad job or bad marriage because he is afraid to change and wind up in a situation that is just as bad and unfamiliar on top of that.
