Now I understand.

Move over, Dr. Phil, there's a new relationship expert in town.

He's Saudi author and cleric, "Dr." Muhammad Al-'Arifi, who in a remarkable segment broadcast on Saudi and Kuwaiti television in September, counseled young Muslim men on how to treat their wives.

"Admonish them – once, twice, three times, four times, ten times," he advised. "If this doesn't help, refuse to share their beds."

And if that doesn't work?

"Beat them," one of his three young advisees responded.

"That's right," Al-'Arifi said.

Click here to view the segment at MEMRITV.org

He goes on to calmly explain to the young men that hitting their future wives in the face is a no-no.

"Beating in the face is forbidden, even when it comes to animals," he explained. "Even if you want your camel or donkey to start walking, you are not allowed to beat it in the face. If this is true for animals, it is all the more true when it comes to humans. So beatings should be light and not in the face."

His final words of wisdom?

"Woman, it has gone too far. I can't bear it anymore," he tells the men to tell their wives. "If he beats her, the beatings must be light and must not make her face ugly.

"He must beat her where it will not leave marks. He should not beat her on the hand... He should beat her in some places where it will not cause any damage. He should not beat her like he would beat an animal or a child -- slapping them right and left.

"Unfortunately, many husbands beat their wives only when they get mad, and when they start beating, it as if they are punching a wall – they beat with their hands, right and left, and sometimes use their feet. Brother, it is a human being you are beating. This is forbidden. He must not do this."

Take that, Match.com!

If only he had started and STOPPED with this

Re: Now I understand.

That's not that strange. I have (against my will almost) attended these right wing kook Bible relationship classes (don't even ask) at at a very well-attended, wealthy, church in the US and while they do not advocate wife-beating, the theme is clear, that under the Bible, the man is the boss. The woman must always submit to the man and trust him and obey him. Her failure to do this is why marriages are failing and relationships are in trouble. God wants it that way. She must realize this. And there were shitloads of woman there totally buying this. I'm not sure, brainwashed, or people there have marriages on the rocks and are willing to try anything.

No, it was when my marriage to Jess was on the rocks. When I saw those dopey broads buying that shit, I figured I'd rather just get divorced and get it over with. I mean, I'm not like those other broads, I am, after all, me.
