    Muslims have lost a lot of whatever sympathy they once might have had. Not too many complaints about 'Islamophobia' anymore.

    True. Of course, staying single benefits WOMEN as well, including -- but not limited to -- the huge benefit of freedom from bullying husbands.

    I've always wondered, what they saw in them.

    I have no idea. However, I think some bullies are very good at hiding their bullying -- and in many cases, abusive -- behaviors until after the wedding takes place and the women are legally bound to them. Then, of course, it is too late for the woman to simply walk away. She's legally stuck with the guy, and it's even worse for her if she has one or more kids with him.

    Another great reason to remain single and childfree; not having to deal with such a nightmare on a daily basis.

    This is horrible news for Muslim men in the U.K.

    It's also patently ridiculous. When is it the responsibility for the woman to walk away from the relationship?

    And does this apply to wives who "control" their husbands?

    The proposed change in legislation applies to women who control their husbands just as much as men who control their wives

    I am kind of amazed by this thread.

    It sounds like many in this thread think that either mental and emotional abuse is okey dokey or who the hell cares...it can't be proven so move on.

    So, no one is concerned that this exists? No one wonders if this is happening to someone you know and love and can be stopped?

    I'm glad it applies to both genders but on it's surface, to me it's just an excuse for women to accept victimization...or to make such victimization acceptable.

    I don't think you've read this thread correctly. Or made assumptions about things that just isn't there. No one here thinks that mental and emotional abuse is "okey dokey". Most here that have commented on it are simply saying that proving it is extremely hard to do. Commenting that such abuse as being hard to prove does not equal it being "okey dokey". Others have also commented on the fact that this proposal seems to only focus on women being abused and ignores men being abused. But no one has even slightly suggested that it is "okey dokey".

    okay, it was just a bizarre thread to read through....many of the men whining and crying what about me, what about me...and a few threads blaming the victim...
