More than half a million Saudi men have revealed that they are systematically beaten up by their wives, but most of them will not resort to court.
The complaints by the husbands were revealed by the Riyadh-based Waei Centre for Social Advice, which said it received six new complaints on Monday.
“We have received more than 557,000 complaints by Saudi men who are beaten up by their wives and needed advice,” the centre’s manager Sheikh Adel Al Mutawa said.
“Most of them do not want their names to be known and want to keep the issue as a secret. They just do not want to take their wives to court to avert embarrassment,” he told the Saudi Arabic language daily ‘Sabq’.
Ali AM, father of two, is terrified of his wife. He claims that she has an 'almost violent' temper, one that leads to verbal abuse, and at times, physical. His suffering remained a secret for more than five years.
I prefer that we solve the problem, not make it worse, especially for the sake of our children.”
Men being mistreated and controlled by their wives - it’s a side of domestic abuse that you rarely hear about.
Mr. Ali: my wife hits me sometimes with her shoes, sometimes she slaps me, even in front of our children. This shows the disrespect she has, when I have never hit her,” he said.
Majid S said, “My wife complains and nags almost every day. Even when I come home after a long working day she makes me feel like staying out after work and returning home late, hoping she’s asleep.”
Incredibly, if these figures are to be believed, more married men suffered abuse at the hands of their spouse than married women (2.3 per cent of married men were recorded to have complained about domestic abuse compared with 1.8 per cent of married women).
Shall I put this also to Popular Myths ? Man beat woman the biggest Myth ?

So certain Saudi men, who may act superior at times in society maybe doing so to cover the abuse at home ?
Loketa parakase, gederata maragathe.
Leaving the puns aside. I found this article harder to believe. We usually think Saudi men are more aggresive and women
have lesser say. Table turn.
