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.

Thanks foe sharing, and above all accepting them... If every person , starts thinking your way, believe me this WORLD can be changed into HEAVEN.. Tolerance and acceptance ... , if these two things you keep in mind, all differences can be sort out.

I am not so sure in what was the right reason but some of them where telling that the main reason is "Jealousy" on why both person have to hit the significant partner in life......

There can be plenty of excuses and reasons.Jealousy can be one of them.Some people are sick,they are habituated to physical and mental abuse.Some like to play a dominant role,hence,physical abuse.

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.

I wonder why some people like to dominate physically and psychologically.There are much better ways to handle problems.I can't imagine hitting someone.

I really do not understand that because I never hit someone but I think it is because they loose a discussion and want to harm the other for their pain or they were educated like that, the same mummy did to me I will do to others!
