If the woan I'm with thinks that it is ok to hit me, I'm gone. And it wouldn't be because I'm scared to hit her. It's because (1) she doesn't love me at all, (2) she's trying to get me to act against her out of anger, and (3) if I do that, I ruin both of our lives because by hurting her, I hurt my future as well as hers. And she can call me a punk whatever all she wants to. That's what crazy chicks do to get you trapped by your pride. You don't have to fall for that trap, and that's all it really is - a TRAP, a trap that only FOOLS fall into. I refuse to make jail my future over being seduced by anger-inciting physicality or giving in to the feling ofhaving to defend my pride from her mouth. She ain't worth it!!! As I am leaving, I pray for her, and leave it in god's hands. Either she will make the choice to change once I leave or continue her cycle of attracting abuse to her life. If that's my wife, that's immediate grounds for separation, and we WILL NOT get back together unless she agrees to counseling, because I WILL NOT have the spiritual sicknes of "addiction to abuse" in our home. Abuse is not welcome in our home or in our bed, period. And if that makes me less of a man to you, then you're the problem and you've got to go.
