“This is all too confusing, Where is it in the Bible that says it’s ok to Beatup your spouse???
How long do we keep forgiving and living a lie all in the name of our children, The SAME children if not removed from an abusive environment will grow up to be the Abuser THEMselves..A man who hits a woman today has over time watched it happen before, It could never be a first time event half the time..Protect your Children by making the right discussion for them,Marriage isn’t suppose to be a battle field and even if it were, Men pick someone your own size.
“How long do we keep look and listening to society telling us how to live our lives? Same society that would blame you tommorw if something tragic happens..Society please be kind to women,give us the respect,Care and protection we deserve..
“MEN WOULD YOU LOVE TO SEE YOUR MOTHERS OR SISTERS BE TREATED THIS WAY??? THEN WHY DO IT TO US?? Listen it absolutely doesn’t matter what a woman does to you,you have various options to walk away Not pose like a boxer in a ring with mayweather.. A man who truly loves his wife won’t dare lay a finger on her. There are so many ways to resolve marital conflicts and violence does no good…#SAYNOTODOMESTICVIOLENCE”
