Folks, this is Sharia Law. Beating one’s wife should be intended as a means of discipline according to this “Family Therapist”. It’s for her own good, because in no way is she equal to a male. He explains that beating one’s wife is an important part of marital relations to humiliate her into submission. Welcome to the 6th century!

Quran (4:34) – Men have authority over women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband’s] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance – [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand.
