    Bullying husbands face jail under new proposals by Theresa May

    Bullying husbands face jail under new proposals by Theresa May - Telegraph

    HUSBANDS who keep their wives downtrodden could face prison under new plans set out by the Government today.
    Theresa May, the Home Secretary, published proposals for a new offence of “domestic abuse” designed to criminalise men who bully, cause psychological harm or deny money to their partners.


    The law would make the worst cases of non-violent “controlling behaviour” a jailable offence.


    Exact terms of the offence are yet to be defined, but it could involve humiliating, frightening or intimidating a partner, keeping them away from friends or family or restricting their access to money.
    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?

    What about Wives who bully their husbands? Not sure if this is going to fly unless it goes towards both sexes. Also I forsee problems in trying to prove that such an abuse actually exists when the wife doesn't report it.

    How about the women/wives who are control freaks? How about putting their fat asses in jail, for spending money without consulting their husbands, denying their husbands sex and making unilateral decisions?

    Emotional damage should not be a crime, imho.

    How would you even prove half of this stuff anyway?

    Get this.

    So it's been proven that wife on husband domestic abuse is a thing... k?

    So me and my wife took our son for his 6 month checkup or whatever it was.

    And once we'd given him his injections and done some tests and what have you, the female doctor asks me to leave the room with my son so she can speak to my wife.

    Some of it was about asking questions for post partem depression but at one point she flat out asked me whether I was abusing her without any indication said thing was happening... what if I was the one being abused and not only am I not being asked but I'm kicked out of the room in totality.

    And the funniest thing was I didn't even think about it that way until I told some people and a woman pointed it out to me.

    Most of this stuff you can't even prove if she did report it. How is she going to prove he frightened her? Really, how do you prove that after the fact? She would need witnesses, and what are the chances there isn't one to be found? If she does have witnesses it's just their word against his. The only way to avoid this would be cameras, but then you are video taping him without permission and that is illegal too. So yeah, it's bull**** all around.

    Well this is the UK so not sure if video taping someone without their permission is illegal. However, you are correct it is very hard to prove.

    At least you are safe from this politically incorrect punishment, if you stay single.
