It's NEVER ok to lay a hand on a woman. I could never harm my wife no matter what. If you hit a woman you are no man in my eyes.

That's called "domestic violence".
Report as
If it happens repeatedly. what I mean by depending on the situation is self defense. that really is the only reason to hit a person, gender aside.
Report as
Just because it happens repeatedly, doesn't mean it's okay. But, you're right about being able to use self defense. You should have made that a little more clear when you said "depending on the situation". Some abusers consider her not making supper when he got home a "reasonable situation".
Report as
yea, no not that. I intended say rape, abusers, attacks, domestic violence, ect. as the ok situation to retaliate.

Absoloutly not. My mom always tells me that if a man lays a hand on you to do harm, he is not worth it. You deserve better than that. He does not understand that you cannot just minipulate people using physical intimidation. Honey, find a better man, or help whoever needs it. I pray that everything works out for you. Xx

Kim, a cording to your previous question, you are now two months pregnant and your family wanted you to abort. Maybe now you know why your family has such a low opinion of this man who would hit a pregnant woman. If he does this to you and you take it, you will not be in a position to protect your baby. Something is very wrong here. Move back home to the love and protection of your family.

Violence is a tool intended to inflict as much damage and death onto someone as possible. It is not okay to hit anyone unless you intend to damage them in situations like self defense or the defense of another.

There is NEVER EVER a reason to violently hit those that you love that love you back no matter how strong/weak they are or what gender.

If he is hitting you seriously without your permission and hurting you then you need to understand that he does not love you and he does not respect you and he does not care for your well-being. He doesn't give a shit about you.

When he says he loves you he is LYING. Every time you stay after he says the same thing to you he is laughing on the inside at how stupid you are for believing him. Don't be a fool! Leave that garbage.

If you are a religious woman and he is quoting some sort of scripture and you are confused due to faith, don't be!
There is no true religion on this planet that condones domestic violence... he is lying and will burn in hell for what he does to you and you will also be punished for willingly letting him damage the body that god has blessed you with just like you would be if you were drinking or taking drugs.

It is not ever okay for a man to hit a woman. If she's abusing him physically, it's okay for him to restrain her. That's all. No one should ever hit anyone. However, if a man is abusing a woman, she should get away and say away. I read somewhere it's something like 30% or more females who have been murdered were murdered by their husbands or boyfriends. That's astonishing. Think about it. 3 our of every 10 women who are murdered, were murdered by the man who she trusted and loved. The man who was supposed to love her back and protect her. When a man raises his hand to a woman, that's exactly where it's leading. It's cowardly of a man to hit a woman.

F*** NO! You never lay a hand on a woman even if in some way she deserves something like that. The only time you ever touch a woman is to give her a hug, hold hands (if you're in a relationship) or to give her a friendly handshake or high five. You never take advantage of a woman, you never use her, you don't hurt her and most importantly you never put her in harms way. Am I the only guy out there who still believes things like this and if there is a guy hitting you then please, for your sake, get away from him. Nobody deserves to go through that kind of pain, especially you.

Never. I was raised in an incredibly violent home. Ambulance and police frequented my home. Physical violence is a presenting problem of much deeper, personal issues, and cannot be changed unless the one doling out the beatings is willing to get help. Violence and abuse is never acceptable. And it isn't just limited to physical acts of aggression. Verbal abuse, manipulation, intimidation... get away from it. Far away, and fast. You cannot fix anyone. Their behavior is detrimental to all those within their reach. Ramifications can run long term.
