POLL: And The Hits Keep On Coming...

Friday, October 16, 2009 - 12:00 AM

A reader writes... Q: Is there such a thing as domestic abuse of a husband? Six times in the three years we’ve been married my wife has struck me. She has a terrible temper. She breaks dishes, throws them at me and hits me with her fists. I am bigger and stronger and able to fend her off. I have never hit her back. These rages are most often provoked by jealousy. I have many women friends, but I have been true to my wife. She refuses to get anger-management counseling and says her outbursts are hormonal. She says she loves me and seems genuinely sorry after these attacks. But I am worried she may hurt me or, worse, that I will have to hurt her in self-defense.
