Resorting to physical abuse to end an argument or, worse, vent one's "manly" frustrations, is the clearest sign that a man is no longer putting his love and compassion for his partner above his reasons for being enraged, whatever their nature and however legitimate they might be.
you say so many things that are so full of fail. How old are you? How long have you been MARRIED?
I was married for 18 years. Let me tell you. Women PROVOKE MEN ENDLESSLY in the west and then HATE THEM for not disciplining them. It is a pandemic.
Spanking your wife for provoking is not "abuse" any more than spanking a child for stealing or lying is abuse. The child needs to be spanked for stealing or lying to learn that this is wrong and will not be tolerated later in life. The woman needs to be spanked to know that her man is stronger and more powerful than her so she can then feel protected and feel safe. That is how it is. It is only the last 30 years that spanking or slapping a woman has become unacceptable...
Even Sean Connery has publicly stated over many years slapping a woman who will not shut up is ok and he said it to barbara walters.
I spanked my fav#1 a number of times......she got what she wanted. The "never hit woman" rule is a disaster and one that I no longer abide by.
It is sexist and discriminatory against women because it classes women as lesser.
