Frequently asked questions about domestic battering.
Q: What’s the difference between spousal abuse and domestic abuse?
A: When a woman abuses her partner, she usually does it in secret, and then, when he tries to confront her about it, she tells him it’s his fault. When a man hits his wife, he usually does it in front of other people and tells everyone how wonderful the relationship is. I’ve seen it go both ways.
Q: How does society encourage men to hit their wives?
A: There is pressure on the man to look good and the woman to be submissive.
Q: How do you feel about women who physically hurt their husbands?
A: I believe the man should always be the one to stop the violence, and that is if there is any violence at all. It is a very personal matter.
