Husband Beating - The other type of Domestic Violence!!

As a psychiatrist, on a rough average for every 10 cases of women suffering from Domestic Violence I get too see at least 8 cases of men suffering Domestic Violence!!
The abusing Wife is as an Emotional and Physical Abuser. Her core motive is complete control over the husband and treating him like a "slave".
Here are some characteristics of such cases -
1. Husband gets physically abused - The wife loses her temper on anything expressing it in the form of severe beating and verbal abuse of husband.
2. Isolating the husband from his friends and family by constantly inducing guilt or insulting him.
3. The wife keeps a complete control over activities such as work, socializing and money expenditure.
4. Constantly insulting and making sarcastic fun of husband - privately and publicly. The intention is to make him feel inferior and sad.
5. Make fun of husbands sexual performance or making him perform sex against his will.
6. Wife might over-socialize with her own relatives, friends or have multiple sexual liaisons. Husband or his relatives are not allowed to question her.
7. Continuous legal threats against the husband and his relatives.
8. Wife feeds the children with negativity against husband and encourages them to abuse the husband.
9. All major decisions in the house are taken by the wife, and husband is abused if he expresses his view on the same.
My Mind Mantra on this is - Domestic violence leads to severe depression, anxiety, inferiority complex, destruction of family relationships, physical injuries, sexual inadequacy and suicidal thoughts.
One should consult a psychiatrist and lawyer immediately.
