I have been angry many a time in my life from everything from soup to nuts, however I have NEVER done anything quite like this.
Many people may kick and scream and rant and rage and even give someone a sift kick in the ballies because they get so emotionally upset that something inside is triggered and with people like This... Lord only knows what else they could be capable of.
I don't Approve but then again, I do not think they can help themselves.
Good luck. xx1

While I get takumii point (i. e. the historic doubt standard regarding men hurt by women), it's not 100% true anymore. Most jurisdictions have Domestic Violence Laws requiring the police to arrest someone if there is any evidence of Domestic Violence. Some jurisdictions even require that they remove one person to a different location, even if a crime hasn’t been committed, if there is a “risk” of Domestic Violence.
In the end, any person who shows any injury is the “victim”, or if the statements taken indicate that some is a “victim”, then the other person is the “perpetrator” and must be arrest (if both are injured or claim injury, both will go to jail). The prosecutor then decides who telling the truth and who will be charged (if there is enough evidence). It an "arrest first, sort it out later" mentality.
Even if the “victims” refuses to cooperate, the prosecutor will charge the “perpetrator” anyway. It no longer matters if the “victim” “refuses to press charges”. Yes, it’s harder to prove, but if there is evidence (like police photos) they will charge the “perpetrator” anyway. This is due to the fact that, the federal government has Domestic Violence Prevention money that the jurisdiction only gets if they have these rules, and the fact that Police departments have been sued by “victims”, or their next of kin, when they leave without taking someone to jail or let the “perpetrator” out of jail to quickly (even though the “victim” “refuses to press charges”). It’s all about getting money or avoiding lawsuits. However, takumii is correct in that the cop is going to believe that the woman is the “victims” a lot faster then the man, hence the doubt standard. It is assumed that men are the “perpetrator” and the woman is the “victim”, which is wrong.
While I get (and even agree with) your physically hurt a cheating jerk, if you "hitting them, slapping them, kicking them in the balls", you are going to jail, period. So I guess you can do it, but you will have to pay the price.1
