I read with interest Kathleen Parker’s column on domestic violence (6/30, Opinion). I believe that most violence is born of frustration, caused by lack of understanding between the sexes.
The most important thing that I ever learned about relationships is that, given a problem, a man wants to do something about it and a woman wants to talk about it. If I had known this fact of life years ago, I probably would not be divorced.
Much violence could be avoided if women would follow the teachings of Dr. Laura Schlessinger in her book The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands. It shows women how they can have much more control over their lives and happiness.
Men are simple creatures who don’t understand the complex female, but respond well to a beer and some affection.
