    Actually, females physically abusing their male S.O. is a lot more common than most people think. I've posted a number of studies in other threads.

    Want to compare numbers? Female beating on male does happen but male on female is a lot more prevalent.

    If you insult your wife or husband repeatedly, you could soon find yourself in court if you live in France.

    The charge? Psychological violence.

    That's what the new offence will be called if a bill backed by the government is passed by parliament.

    Once considered a purely private domain, rows between married or cohabiting couples could now prompt intervention from the state.

    The French government wants to take the controversial step of introducing a new law banning "psychological violence" between married couples or partners living together.
    ROTFLMAO
    Intervention from the state?
    Oh, the abuse of this could be wondrous from all sides... wife, husband, state.

    Hell, I see a great sitcom stemming from this... Le Trio Magnifique!
    It has real potential as a reality TV show... that's one I might watch.

    Depends on what you mean by "a lot more prevalent". Some studies have concluded that female on male CDV is somewhere around 2/3rds or more as common as the reverse. Some other conclusions: Possibly more than 1/3 of cases where a man is arrested for CDV, in the incident in question the female was the one who initiated violence.

    It is far from a one-way street.
