It is a violation of the law of the land, and the law applies in all situations regardless of the community practices.
In other communities, abusing the wife leads to automatic jail time.
The violence involves the partner being subjected to harassment but most importantly, it entails the use of force on the pattern with the aim of the infliction pain.
Domestic violence occurs in the society even when the involved parties are not related to each by a legal marriage.
Subjective determination of the actions that are insubordinate or disrespectful to the husband creates a difficult question of what situation justifies the husband to abuse the wife.
The fact that the society or a certain community allows the practice does not make it right.For example, some of the communities and religion allow the men to beat their wives in the event that they purport that they are irrational, disrespectful and non-submissive.This means that the decision locus of the actions that fall under the violations mentioned above is under the control of the man.Perspective of the victims creates a different kind of problem when it comes to arguing the domestic violence cases.Victims have the advantage in domestic violence, and accountability of the perpetrator since the actual proceedings seeking justice for the acts of violence have to be instituted by the victim (Birkland, 2011).Therefore, his or her perception of the events that led to the domestic violence is part of the tipping point in the argument for or against the accountability of the perpetrator ('Relations among Adolescents’ Domestic Violence, School Violence, Depression-Anxiety, and Suicide', 2012).For instance, the victims in communities that have embraced the vice often apportion most of the blame to themselves.This is the common phenomenon in the religious families.The women from these families often try to mask their pain in the bliss of good model family.However, even in such communities, there is no way of determining with certainty the aspects that justify some actions.A case could be argued in different ways, and the verdict could be a vindication or a sentence.
