Why Can't He Just Respect Our Mother?

May 8, 2009 1:23pm CST
I saw a fight in my neighborhood. The husband was abusing her wife's mom then i felt very bad and stopped even talking to him. Sometimes i feel men try to dominate by abusing wife's mother. but this is not good. I wonder why they do so? If there happens a fight for some reason between husband and wife then what has her mother to do with that? If i were in her case i would have taken a divorce. Because my mother has done a lot for me and i love her too much. What do you all feel?

NObody should abuse anyone in any situtation.. BEcause fighting and violence is not a solution to problems.. It will only make things worse than before.. Also, it's already wrong to hit his own wife, and yet he's hitting on his wife's mother?? That's simply too much for he does not even have the basic respect at all.. His wife should leave him as soon as possible and find a better man..

Men are so jealous of our mothers. Men think they own all our free time. Men needs to remember without our moms we would not be here on earth.

First of all, abuse in any form to any individual or animal is simply wrong. No, I don't think he should have taken out his frustrations on the mother in law. He didn't have a right to take out his frustrations with anyone, but to take it out on the mother in law is disrespectful. There were times in the past when I was with my ex and he got easily frustrated with my mother because of the way she can be sometimes, and I would always remind him to keep his temper in check and ignore anything she said that would potentially set him off. Family is family.. especially when it comes to moms. Some men do try to dominate using abuse as their weapon, some women do the same. I don't think we can peg it on gender only. I would personally not have anything to do with the man that abused his mother in law. Like I said, abuse is wrong in any way shape or form, but to add cream onto the cake, he did it in the neighborhood in front of everyone. Not only is that disrespectful to the mother in law, but very embarrassing for her as well.
