Saw a photo of a badly beaten young woman on social media. Supposedly the injuries were inflicted by her spouse. I normally wouldn’t comment on issues like this unless someone close to me is involved. But I’m going to give my ten cents anyway. Couples fight out of minor disagreements to major squabbles.
But I draw the line at physical violence.
Unfortunately, I know a few who assault their partners. There’s this someone who often beats his wife but gets away with bloody murder every single time because nobody around him have the guts to confront him about his brutality. (Scared about the heat he packs, I was told.)
It wasn’t pleasant to be around this vicious alpha male. Being the macho Neanderthal that he is, he constantly criticizes people for the smallest of things — mocking his fellow males (especially stay-at-home husbands) for doing housework (which according to him is reserved for women); insulting poor individuals who do not make as much money as he does; beats his family’s dogs at his slightest annoyance — among other despicable things.
Yet he professes to be a godly Catholic. (Wow!) Goes to mass every Sunday. (Awesome!) Brags about his Christian deeds every single chance he gets. (Amen!) Oh, so holy!
So ladies, know your partners well. Avoid those who’ll inflict violence on you at the slightest provocation. You all deserve someone better.
