Domestic violence against men ,BIG problem but NO SOLUTION ?
they are married for 22 years, and my uncle has seen hell in these 22 years.
(i'm related to the woman by the way, and he is my uncle because he is married to my aunt)
she in under medication, but when she has her attacks she completely loses it, and she abuses everyone around especially her husband. he ignores her behaviour completely, thinking she is doing it unknowingly. he looks after her, and cares for her all the time.
Even when she is fine, she does not look after the house or the child, it is he who does everything, the son also was brought up by him, and he has no attachment to his mom, because she was never there for him.
Recently she has been sick for more than a month, and in that one month she has bad mouthed about him to almost whoever comes to see her.
She tried to strangulate him in the middle of the night, and one day even beat him up when they were returning from the doc. the poor man broke down and was crying helplessly when they returned home.
We all so sympathise with him, always wonder why he doesn't divorce her. there is nothing left for him in this marriage, and the son does not even like the mom, he dotes on his dad.
But he still wants to be with her, just for her sake, because he knows her condition will worsen if he leaves her.
Why men don't complain about domestic violence ?
Why people don't care about domestic violence against men ? Why people make fun of abused men ??
Recent studies shows that more than 40 % of the victims of domestic violence are men.
For the sidenote: I believe in equal rights (I am not a feminist ) I posted this question because i have seen my uncle being the victim of extreme violence for 22 years.
