Did Gandhi abuse his wife?
I HAVE FOUND THAT A FIRM HAND DOES HELP AND IS NOT ABUSE MY WIFE HAS FOUND THAT SHE FEELS ALOT BETTER WHEN I SHOW HER WHAT SHE HAS DID WRONG WITH A FIRM HAND, AND SHE DOES… NOT CALL IT ABUSE! SHE EVEN THANKS ME Did someone erase my first answer?You don't have to use all caps, unless you're blind. Getting to the question at hand, a lot of women are turned on when a man takes charge and shows some fortitude, but too much is too much, and it can become abuse, regardless of how many people may or may not thank their husband for whatever they did. If you leave a bright or dark red mark on them, it could be construed as abuse, but leaving scars is abuse, so just watch it, especially when you are agitated, tired, or drunk, or any combination of those things. Ya if theres big bruises and a lot of them it would be abuse but if he's drunk or really mad at you and he hits you then it really wouldn't be his falt cause some men who hit women have anger issues where at some point they will hit you if you make them mad trust me I know
Pretty good unless he's had counseling. Most abusers are serial offenders, abusing one partner after the other. I am a second wife of a Narcissist. I can tell yo…u that the chances are good, very good. Even if they seem to have 'dealt' with their divorce. N's are very good at acting, remember that. They know what to project when they need to convince you they are 'OK now'. As the second wife, I would advise anyone considering marrying a Narcissist to rethink that choice seriously. The pain and turmoil is absolutely not worth any 'love' you think you are receiving. In short, the chances are too high, and the risks too great. Love yourself instead, the returns are much better! There is no chance but only a guarantee. Abusers don't care if your nicer, smarter, prettier, as you are only an object to be defeated, used and demeaned. They don't see your worth and if they do its only validity is that its a threat. Abusers are also notorious for saying "the ex wife, girlfriend was a real hag". You may even believe this after meeting her. BUT you must take into consideration why the ex is angry if this is the case. Again, they don't change they only increase the psycological warfare. Very, very good. Unless he himself has saught counselling and benefitted from it.
Yes, he beat his wife when both of them were in South Africa. He clearly noted this point in his autobiography.
Kasturba Gandhi Kasturba Gandhi kasturba gandhi was his wife.... kasturba Ghandi
For extended periods where there is no physical or emotional reason for refusal, it is abandonment and emotional abuse. Of course a loving husband isn't going to force anythin…g on someone they promise to love/honor/cherish, but if the wife refuses for months and years because she is angry and/or resentful... that's abandonment and selfish. Sex is part of the relationship and the marriage covenant to put the other person's needs ahead of personal agenda. If the wife can't see this as a need just as food or oxygen, she is selfish to the point of being emotionally abusive. Same is true in reverse. When I hear of men that won't have sex with their wives for years, I want to scream. His primary job is to build up and encourage his wife, and to love her unconditionally. If he can't turn down the lights and do things that make her feel special, he is cruel and selfish. He is isolating her, with holding affection, and being a jerk. It's emotionally abusive for either to worry about themselves when their spouse has a need.
No, Kastruba was Gandhi's wife Indira was a daughter of Jawaharlal Nehru first PM of India. She married to a Muslim man Feroz who was converted Hindu and named Gandhi as adopt…ed by Mahatma Gandhi for the sake so that he can marry Indira a Hindu girl so Indira nehru (before marrige) named Indira gandhi (after marriage).
Not necessarily but there is a good chance that the son of a wife beater will grow up and beat HIS wife and the daughter will grow up and seek a simila man to her father and a…llow her husband to beat her because they have learned from their childhood that this behaviour is the "norm"... and their children and children's children will also. this is why it is so important for the wife to not allow this to happen and to leave him and break the cycle of abuse. Its possible if a man abuses his wife he might take his anger out on his children to and if he the woman and hits the kid take my advice and leave that son of b***h go somewhere safe and if he tries to get you back go to the police and probaly go to a parens house her a friends house just forget about him
gandhi's wife, kasturbai was 14 and he was 13 when they got married. (pervert)
Abuse is... Her incessant criticism about the man on a personal, such as... You are ugly. Nobody but me loves you - look at you! And other general remarks meant to hurt …your feelings. Vicious mockeryEmotional blackmailOdious liesName-calling such as: "You're an idiot"Physical Abuse (hitting, throwing objects, stabbing, strangling, etc) Withholding needs (shelter, food, water, etc) Frequent belittling and humiliating you in front of the children, co-workers or friends.Peddling guilt on a CONSTANT basis. Damaging or blocking your career,False accusations to the police. HOW DO YOU RECOGNIZE IT? When she really-really swings into action, you going to feel like she has all the power, you have no power, and you're losing your mind! You will get very upset! You will have trouble with your short term memory, you will feel like a prisoner, and you won't understand the situation you're in! This can go so far that you might start thinking that you need to get yourself checked for dementia! I was in an abusive relationship Counselling Helped but the first thing you need to do is recognise you are being abused.Its important to remember that it is the abuser that has the problem & that they are using you to express that.The Police & others often view abused Men with little tact,but this is because others can be very judgemental.It is important to work on improving your self-esteem.If you are on your own at least you will be safe & not have constant anxiety.Your abuser will try to isolate you from your friends & family,to make you more dependent on them or even manipulate you via them.Remember Blood is Thicker than Water.
Gandhi's parents organised the wedding, so that's how he met her. (If you were wondering how old he was when he married he was 13 and when he had kids, he was 14.)
Answer YES, YES, YES, it is called assault and it is a crime. However I see this is posted in 'Abused Men', are you hitting her in self defence? In which case… you really need to see someone who can help you. Answer Absolutely! No matter what (except self-defense) a man should never strike a woman. Answer Yes and it wasnt a one time deal, though abusive people often claim otherwise. Abuse rarely starts off with a slap or punch. There usually is emotional abuse going on long before the physical abuse starts. Abusers will use all sorts of exccuses such as "you just make me so mad" " I never hit my ex, only you, cause you make me crazy." These are lies. Be a man, get help and dont ever hit this woman again! I don't think so. It really depends of the case. I don't know what's up with people and thinking it's okay for women to hit men but not vice versa. Somethimes, women just need some sense slapped into them. It really isn't that big of a deal, "hitting a woman." Even in self defence hitting is just wrong violence is wrong. you need to leave and/or call the cops just because someone hit you does not make it right to hit them back two wrongs do not make a right. if you hit you just abused if you were hit and hit back you were abused and abusive.
Gandhi was abused because he took a stand against the British government, which was more powerful and which was willing to use violence.
I think so but I didn't know the man too well.
It has been not quite a century since Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was assassinated in January 1948 at the age of 78 in New Delhi, India. The bevy of hagiographies w…ritten about him is now being replaced with truth-telling biographies about the Gandhi nobody knew. The most recent one is titled Great Soul: Mahatma Gandhi and His Struggle with India by Joseph Lelyveld. And according to Lelyvard, Gandhi the pacifist was a wife-beater, denied sex to his wife for decades, was purported to be a "celibate" living life as an ascetic but actually was a pedophile who ritualized sleeping naked with underage girls in order to test "the ferocity of his sexual desires," and at one point left his wife for a male lover. While one would think, at first glance, reading Lelyveld's shocking revelations about Gandhi, it's all tabloid fodder for a rapacious audience that diets on sordid tales, Lelyveld, former editor of the New York Times, and a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author, pays meticulous attention to details. Between 1908 and 1910, Gandhi left his wife to be with wealthy German-Jewish bodybuilder and architect Hermann Kallenbach. But the only evidence Lelyveld gives the reader, suggesting the bonding of the two men was at least homoerotic if not homosexual, is a salacious one-liner where Gandhi allegedly told Kallenback, "How completely you have taken possession of my body. This is slavery with a vengeance." According to Gandhi's own wife, Gandhi engaged in heterosexual intercourse, but it repulsed him so much it actually made him physically ill, and he vowed never to attempt it again.
