If a girl slaps her boyfriend, does he have a right to slap her back?

I think it depends. I knew a girl who just started smacking her boyfriend, and even when he blocked and tried to stop her, she tried kicking him. It took a bunch of us to restrain her. I think in a situation like that he could slap her back. I think that would be self defense. Her boyfriend didn't slap her, but that's one example I can think of. If it's one slap, I don't think so. I think with anyone guy or girl, they should just walk away.
I once had a good friend of mine slap me when we were drunk, and all I did was walk away and grab another drink. I didn't speak to her for a long time. She slapped me just because I said her boyfriend (who was cheating on her, and she knew it) was a jerk. I know we're both girls, but still. I don't think one slap means anything. Now if she had gone crazy on me, chances are I would have hit her back.
In a relationship, I honestly think if one person hits the other then the relationship shouldn't even continue. If the person capable of doing it once, chances are it will happen again. I think it would also lead to a lot of resentment. I don't see why anyone needs to hit anyone anyway. I've never agreed with girls think it's okay to slap a guy whenever, even if she thinks he deserves it.2
