Violence Begins in Thought

Physical abuse of husbands against their wives begins in thought: “Men are smarter and more capable than women, and women must do as we say and answer to our every demand.” Men also judge women by their outer appearances when choosing a spouse.
It continues with "light" verbal abuse: Degrading comments and jokes about women in their presence, or even among men alone.
Then there is more severe verbal abuse: A husband commanding his wife like an army officer, and a husband raising his voice to his wife who did not carry out his order.
The door is then open to physical violence to clearly demonstrate that the husband is the decision-maker.
The remedy: Repent, relate humbly to your wife, as a friend. A deep, inner remedy.
