I have heard , many men hitting women and some women hitting men.. Reasons for it, I think ,main is literacy ...many may not agree with me..but ,here in subcontinent ,I have seen this as main reason. That does not mean, literate persons always act in good manners..second reason is, bringing up by parents... You may not find my views helpful , because after 20 years being together, we did not quarrel a single time, yes , difference of opinion is something else...

Yes my friend,it is not just men who hit women,but there are stories we heard and seen where women are also not behind the abuse.I used to have a neighbour,now they have shifted to another town.The lady of the house used to treat her husband very badly,abuse him.They always fight and she also used to physically assault him too,but poor guy though he shouts back at her,but he never even slap her even for once and my friend I agree with you when you say "bringing up by parents".Some kids grew up seeing parents fighting and hitting each other,using abusive languages etc and later when he/she grows up in some cases,they also starts doing the same.Difference in opinion is always there in every relationship, after all we are two different individuals.No two mind thinks the same way.

I think that it has something to do with a need for dominance or superiority. Of course, there is usually an underlying mental disorder. Most abusive relationships start off with verbal abuse. The abuser realizes that the abusee is not doing anything about it, and they keep going farther and father until it's a disaster. Some people become full-blown psychopaths, and start doing it because they find the fear of the other person satisfying.
