A friend shared this thought provoking article on Facebook yesterday.
How many of you cringed while reading it, seeing a bit (or a whole lot!) of yourself in the article?
There does seem to be a double standard for women in relationships. If a man were to belittle a woman for her mistakes it would be considered emotional abuse. If a woman does it we just deem it "nagging" or "that time of the month".
If a man were to slap his wife during a moment of intense disagreement it would be physical abuse. If a woman were to do it to her husband, it would probably be justifiable.
Nope, Nope, NOPE. Being rude, mean, physical, or just a general unpleasant person goes for both genders.
The article made me stop and think. It reviled something in my personality that I don't like. I'm off to apologize to my husband.
