73% of Saudi wives verbally abused, says study |

I sometimes am so grateful that I don't have to face a whole culture that treatment women as property! You think we have it bad, think what it is like in some other countries when it comes to accepting verbal and emotional abuse--this article made me cringe.
73% of Saudi wives verbally abused, says study | Arab News — Saudi Arabia News, Middle East News, Opinion, Economy and more.: "Al-Subai clarified in the study that raising the voice, silencing a spouse in public or verbally humiliating, cursing her or her parents and family, using sexually explicit profanities, degrading her physical appearance, or avoiding using her name when addressing her all constitute forms of verbal abuse."

    Heard horrible story where a brother killed his sister because she had shamed her family. How she shamed them was to be brutally raped!! How do you not have empathy, sympathy for anyone especially your family. That story haunts me, wish I could help these poor women!
