Why Do Christian Spouses Abuse Their Marriage Partners?
There is hardly a subject more confusing than trying to figure out the reasoning behind why one Christian marriage partner could ever even think it’s acceptable to abuse their spouse, who they vowed before God to “love and honor.” It’s amazing how a Christian can so deeply hurt the one they say they love and hide behind Bible verses and the slanted logic of blaming their marriage partner, to justify wrongful behavior.
Below you will find several links to articles that could possibly explain why Christian spouses abuse their mates.
We would love it if you could add comments at the end of these articles to help the readers in their understanding of these issues, and minister to the needs of those who are trying to deal with this difficult situation.

And even though the Department of Justice reports that approximately 95% of the reported victims of violence are women, we can’t neglect the fact that many men are abused by their wives and some are even battered. It’s one of those “lesser discussed” subjects.
It seems to be something that most battered men don’t discuss for a variety of reasons (i.e. pride, teasing from other men, shame, it’s a “guy” thing not to discuss such things, fear of incurring further wrath of their wife, are just some of the reasons).

There is another link to a web site that has blogs on this same subject. It is our hope though, that if you are a husband that is being battered or abused, that you will please come back to this web site to share your insights with our readers (as well as their web site). We have received many letters from husbands that are struggling with this issue in their marriage who would really appreciate it.
