my husband is 6'3'', 230 lbs. I'm only 5'4'' 170 lbs. Sometimes when we get into vicious fights. I would never hit him because there's no way I can fight him. He would punch me in the arm (he has huge fists). And it would cause me a lot of pain, and leave a bruise on me for weeks. He has never punched me in the face. Though he did threaten to punch me in the face. If he did, my face would probably be disfigured or my eye would be damaged. I don't want to call the police on him for something as little as a bruise in the arm. But don't you think this is the reason why husbands should never hit their wives?
