Man Who Beat Ex-wife To A Pulp Is Spared Jail Because Judge Says Her Infidelity 'Dishonored' Him

There's outrage in Portugal after an appeal court there ruled that a man shouldn't have to serve jail time in the savage beating of his ex-wife, because her infidelity brought "dishonor" to him.

The beating happened in June 2015, when the man and his former wife's ex-lover joined forces to attack her with a nail-spiked club. According to court documents, the ex-lover restrained her while the man hit her in the head and body with the club. Injuries from the beating to the head required her to get five stitches.

The man, the ex-wife and her ex-lover were not identified in court documents.
The man was given a suspended sentence of a year and three months in jail. He was also required to pay a fine. The public prosecutor's office appealed the case, hoping to get a heavier sentence and force the man to serve some actual jail time.

But the judges on the court of appeals in Porto refused to impose a stiffer sentence on the man. And their reasoning shocked many -- the man's behavior was excusable because the woman's adultery besmirched his honor.

"Now, the adultery of the woman is a very serious attack on the honor and dignity of the man," the ruling, signed by Judge Joaquim Neto de Moura, said. "It was the disloyalty and the sexual immorality of the plaintiff that made (the defendant) fall into a profound depression, and it was in this depressive state and clouded by the revolt that carried out the act of aggression, as was well considered in the judgment under appeal."

Does this mean that wives can also arrange for their husbands to be beaten to a pulp because their infidelities dishonour them?

Portugeuse men are notorious for beating their women. Lived around them for many years and it's a regular thing with them. Hopefully there is an appeals court that they can resubmit the case to.

Imagine if women did have the same or more strength than men, with all the cheating and outside children, second and third wife we put up with daily and simply bare the shame with not even any argument sometimes, just forgive them and move on.
