Time to trash it out on the couch.....
Let's define domestic violence; it is a violent or aggressive behaviour within the home typically involving the violent abuse be it physical assault, psychological, sexual or emotional assault of a spouse or partner.
Note the use of spouse or partner. Which means the female can be the victim of the abuse, so can the male.
With this background, permit me to ask the following bothering questions.
When a normally calm man slaps(a single slap) his female partner in response to extreme provocation, has he domestically abused her or is it when he beats her blue black that it is?
When a woman slaps her male partner on different occasions of which he never reacts, has she domestically abused him?
What should the man do to her?
Should the man pack out of the house when abused, the same way BVs tell the women to pack when abused?
Is there an excuse for domestic violence? Like pushing a calm.person to the wall.
Is there a frequency to d abuse to term it domestic abuse or when it just happens once its domestic abuse or its the severity of the abuse that matters?
A woman that taunts her husband about being poor or insults and compares him to other men is that domestic abuse too?
A man that taunts his wife about not being sexy anymore is that not domestic (sexual n psychological) abuse? Should the woman pack out of the house?
If the "abuse" was an intent to correct the partner or protect him/herself, is that domestic abuse also?
Why don't men that are abused cry out? Is that society doesn't expect men to be abused by women and its a shame to manhood if that happens?
Is there a room for repentance and change and acceptance for an abuser?
Seriously, so many questions on my my mind and I just want BVs to thrash this domestic violence thing out in all ramifications.
From my earlier definition at the beginning which was gotten from Google, it is quiet obvious that most of us have been domestically abused in one form or the other but stil hanging in there.
Thanks Stella. Look forward to having an engaging discussion.
