Abused Men

Click to enlarge(Click To Enlarge) Khaleej Times in the Gulf region today carried an interesting article on page 12. Hardly front page news, yet so compelling.

The phrase that caught my eye was “It took a lot for the man who is in his fifties to reach out and get help“.

As can be expected, the article goes on to relate how – once he had the guts to report her – the wife falsely accused him of battering her, which was her way of getting her hands on his assets. He was even jailed for two months before being released. And there are more than 1000 men being protected in the house of safety in Serbia.

It is the worst form of abuse when a woman and wife, who is supposed to be the protector, the nurturer, the mother, turns against the relationship. And according to the writer 7 – 10% of men are exposed to abuse at home.

Are you (or have you been) affected by domestic violence? Did you report it? Were you successful?

I would like to hear from you.

    I truly don’t understand why anyone would disagree with that. I think that sounds like it is something to appear more closely at. I really feel occasionally alot of individuals could be pretty narrow minded when it comes that. Nicely thats all for now, look forward to more post and information.. Talk to you men later. “As in life, Chill for greatest results”
