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. Absolutely! No matter what (except self-defense) a man should never strike a woman. 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.
