She married a great guy. He was sweet, charming and treated her as well as she'd ever experienced. She married a great guy, and had 3 beautiful babies with him. Then Mr Right turned wrong. He turned into a beast - not your romantic Beast in Beauty and the Beast, but a real beast.
After the birth of her second child, he and his family (parents and siblings) pressured her into quitting her job to be a full-time mother and home-maker, and therefore, losing her financial independence. Some time after the birth of her third child, he started treating her with coldness. The indifference progressed into verbal abuse and soon, physical abuse.
She has to endure slaps, punches and recently, a kick to the chest that landed her in the hospital. One of her much-loved children, a mere ten-year-old, having picked up some of the big-bully attitude from the beast of a sperm-donor (he is not worthy of the words "husband" or "father"), has started acting defiantly and violently towards her. (Take note of the tenses - this is still on-going at the time of writing)
I do not know her. I have never seen her nor spoken to her. I simply heard her story and I got so infuriated I had to write about it. Don't ask why she hadn't left him. Don't ask why she hadn't filed a police report. Don't ask why she hadn't retaliated. She is an unemployed housewife with 3 young children to care for. Don't you dare judge her. Ask instead WHY a man could even dream of doing this to his wife?
IF I were a MAN, I would never, NEVER lay a finger on a woman. Not if she provoked me, insulted me - not even if she spat in my face! If I were a man, I will NOT beat a woman. Not any woman! Especially NOT she who loved me, married me and bore my children!
This wife-beater does not deserve to be a human. Calling him a beast is actually an insult to beasts! No beast nor insect would harm another of their kind on a whim (for survival, maybe, but definitely NOT for fun!). The fact that he derives joy and satisfaction from inflicting emotional and physical pain on his wife shows just what sort of sick low-life scum he is - probably a self-obssessed coward whose only way of justifying his existence is by exerting physical force on the weak and defenseless. Sick. Sick and disgusting! For the likes of him, even jail-term with whipping is too kind. Try jail, castration, and weekly whipping for the rest of his life, then an eternity in HELL.
Yes, neil is very angry. Some reader might have concluded long ago that neil is somewhat a man-hater. Can you even blame her?
