Man says wife can beat him each week

Man says wife can beat him each week

Li Xinran

A. MAN with a violent wife has taken the unusual step of signing an agreement with her that allows his spouse to beat him once a week.

Zhang, 32, said his wife Chen, who is skilled in martial arts, frequently beats him during disputes over petty things such as who will wash the dishes, Chongqing Evening News reported yesterday.

Both Zhang, a photographer, and Chen want the marriage to continue and have sought a way to end her violent tirades.

"I don't want to beat him very often, but I cannot stop my hands when we have a dispute," Chen, a sales manager, told the newspaper.

She admitted that she felt regret each time she beat her husband and saw him with a black eye.

She told the newspaper that she would stop her violent ways because of the agreement, which was signed with her father as a witness.

Chen had beaten Zhang three times last week until they signed the agreement on Saturday, the report said.

Zhang reminded Chen on Sunday that she was not allowed to beat him anymore that week when another argument started.

Punching bag

"You're not allowed to beat me today in accordance with the agreement," Zhang reportedly said when Chen waved her fist.

She refrained from striking Zhang because the agreement stipulates that she needs to stay with her parents for three days if she breaches the rule.

The couple got married six months ago after meeting at a mutual friend's birthday party.

The report said he was warned by friends not to become Chen’s punching bag when they started dating.

Zhang knew of her kung fu skill when they first met and he felt her wrath on one occasion when he made a joke about her hairstyle.

...Sounds like something slightly saner than our if-a-man-is-accused-of-beating-his-wife-or-girlfriend-then-he-IS-GUILTY-of-domestic-violence judicial system. :/

Oh, well, as long it’s just once a week then he has time to heal before the next beating.

Lost in the translation was the word “off.”

“”””ALLOW””””””

...is the operative word here.

Otherwise, she gets the police called on her by a sensible man. Or gets her teeth knocked out by a not-so-sensible man.

Cue the old vaudeville joke -

My wife beats me up every morning. Yeah. She gets up at 6:00 - I get up at 6:30

(ba-dum-shish!)

No picture of the wife to know if it’s a fair trade.

I might let Lucy Liu or Grace Park take a swing at me as part of a “mutual combat/consensual sex” agreement.

Sorry, nophotos in the print version, and just assumed the same would be true on line. I read the printed article into Dragon Speaking Naturally software.

Zhang, 32, said his wife Chen, who is skilled in martial arts

Apparently not so skilled in the marital arts...

You'd think he'd get her to channel the rage into something less dangerous, such as just heaving the plates at him like in normal households...

Sane? You think agreeing to let someone beat you once a week sounds sane? I think I would either train myself up in martial arts and beat the snot out of her, which would calm her down in a hurry, or use a club which would accomplish the same purpose and then I would leave her.

No, it’s not sane; which was my point... it’s slightly less sane to have a “justice” system where people are condemned on things they have no control over rather than their actions/character.

You know, guys, if she got dressed up in one of those black vinyl skin-tight Cat Woman outfits with thigh-high high heel boots and a little whip, it might not be that bad!

Right, but in their agreement, Bigfoot is REQUIRED to beat Bambi at least twice a week. Three times if he has been a very good boy.
