    Maybe we should outlaw France.

    No, this is not a big enough issue to be a criminal matter. Let couples work out their fights on their own, the government shouldn't be involved.

    If they're going to make spousal arguments a crime, they might as well ban marriage now.

    This law is about a lot more than "spousal arguments". This is about a pattern of abusive verbal behavior that can leave the person on the receiving end in a state of crippling anxiety, lack of self-confidence and self-hate. When the person who's supposed to love and cherish you spends their time telling you how worthless, useless and disgusting you are, it's no longer about simply "arguing with your spouse". This is abuse, plain and simple. We all know that words can hurt a lot more than blows.

    That said, verbal abuse charges, like harassment and bullying charges, will be very difficult to prove. We do have laws against harassment and bullying, so I see no reason why spousal verbal abuse can't be included in those existing laws. Why make a brand new law, when there are already laws that cover this kind of abusive behavior?
