Men Beat Their Wives For A Reason
The act of violence against women is often considered to be an inevitable product of the society in which it occurs. There are many reasons for this. One is that men often feel that they have the right to dominate their wives and other female relatives, while others believe that there is something wrong with the woman herself. The consequences of domestic violence can be devastating – not just for the people involved but also for society as a whole.

How to identify a Domestic Violence Victim
Sometimes it’s hard to tell if someone is the victim of domestic violence. However, there are some tell-tale signs that can help you identify a victim. If you notice bruises on their body, bloodstains on their clothes, or any other signs of injury, they’re likely the victim of abuse. Be aware of any sudden changes in behaviour or moods as well.
Note: Women who are experiencing abuse will often show signs of distress. One of the most common is a change in their sleep patterns. A victim may suffer from nightmares, insomnia, and stay awake for long periods of time. They might also become uncommunicative and withdraw from their friends and family.
Why do men beat their wives?
Men beat their wives for a reason. Sometimes, they feel that by beating them, they can control them and keep them from leaving. Other times, the man feels that he has to take care of his wife because she is too stupid to think for herself. Some men just need an outlet, and beating their wives is one way to do it.

It’s not really a secret that men often outnumber women when it comes to domestic violence cases. One in four women will be abused by their partner and the victim is most likely to be someone they know, like a best friend or family member. The abuse takes many forms, but it’s always systematic. The abuser usually has a pattern of behaviour that he repeats over time. For example, an abuser might first belittle his partner for her accomplishments before escalating to physical abuse.
Man beating his wife is not an act of patriarchal dominance, but rather one of desperation, frustration, and anger. Husbands who beat their wives are often frustrated with feeling that they can’t provide for their family or protect them against outside threats, and the only way they feel like they can take care of them is through violence.
