US men beaten by their wives

Reuters says a third of US men are beaten by their wives as reported in the "American Journal of Preventive Medicine". Apparently men are reluctant to talk about it. The researchers found that domestic violence is associated with serious, long-term effects on the men’s mental health, so senior men with domineering wives are clearly suspect mental cases.

In the UK, of course Cherie Blair comes to mind, and tongues wagged about the alleged mental ill health of Tony Blair.

IMO: I was in the US recently and I find the figure of 1/3 unsurprising. Condoleeza Rice was said to be George Bush's 'office wife', for example. A humor strip in the highly authoritative UK magazine "Private Eye" in practically every issue shows in the last panel President Clinton being beaten by his wife.
