Traditional marriage vows ‘could be used to justify wife beating’
As far as I know and I am sure any other normal human being also knows that beating a women can not be justified in any religion or in any court. Who ever beats women whether she is Wife, Sister, Mother or Aunt they are evil. Guys who thinks religions allows them to beat women are dumb, because even if we think in normal way we know that from our heart that beating women can not be justified in any circumstances.
The traditional marriage vows in which the bride promises to “obey” her husband could be used by men to justify domestic violence, a Church of England report said yesterday.
The report, backed by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, accused the Church of failing at “many points” to prevent abuse.
It said that theological ideas such as male “headship” had been enshrined in the marriage service and could be misinterpreted as supporting the idea that the wife should submit to the husband.
