Re: Warren Zevon: Wife Beater
I've never laid a hand on her with intent to harm, and have never slapped her in any way, shape or form. I've never shouted at her in a threatening manner or postured myself towards her. I've stated that I would slap her a single time open-handed were she to veer off the track, so to speak, and that is all that I have said.
The thing is, it wouldn't escalate. My wife is very clear on where I stand concerning these issues, and I would bet my bottom dollar that she would not be defiant were I to slap her one time with an open hand.
Harm is more than just physical. You've already ruined this woman's idea of self worth anyway but that's what you wanted so congrats. She doesn't speak the fuck up or "veer off the track" because she knows what's waiting for her if she did. Good job. If she snaps and beats the ever loving piss out of you one day, don't get mad.
If she were to threaten to leave, that is her choice and I would respect it. I do not believe in divorce and would never initiate it myself, but you can't control another human being's actions.
I don't believe you at all. Like...at all. Hate to say it but with the way you're presenting yourself on here, you come across as a 20/20 or Lifetime husband.
