    I hate to see what happy picture that is telling a terrible story as this. May God save marriages today! Men do not know that the best way they could show love to their children is to love their mother. A man who beats his wife cannot say he loves his children. It shoots an unexpressible traumatic wave through them when they witness their father pummelling their mother. I wonder how these little ones would live with this and grow into adulthood. If care is not taken, they may become the very worst of individuals on account of this unfortunate background.

    If you married a godly man/woman, just be grateful to God. Those who are trapped already always have their fingers with them to bite. Some men/women are terrible. Pray, open your eyes if you are not yet married ! ! !

    You see what you’ve brought upon yourself. How do you feel now, wife killer? When you go out, you pet your concubines and then return home to accuse and beat your wife for adultery you are committing.
