Does the Lord intend for the women to forgive them and stay with them? To me I do not think that he would hold it against us if we divorce a man that verbally, mentally, or Physically abuses women.

the bible teaches to wake up and get your butt out of the situation before he hurts you.

I don't think any good loving god of justice, wisdom and mercy would want you to stay in a situation that is dangerous and I bet abusing your wife is a major sin.

In the sundry laws of the OT, it is written that a wife is permitted to divorce her husband. Back then, the wife was required to appear before a high priest, proclaim publically her reasons for requesting a divorce, remove one of her shoes and then slap her shoe upon a table top three times. Then the divorce could be granted. Now a days, a Jewess wife simply files for divorce with a court. No wife, Jew or gentile, need remain with a husband who does not love or honor her.

What you have overlooked are the following:

Ephesians 5:25-31,33 -- A man should love his wife as Christ loved the church and as he loves his own body.

1 Peter 3:7 -- A man should try to understand what his wife needs, rather than being bitter toward her (Col. 3:19). He will not expect her to do heavy work since she is not as strong. And he will respect her as being of equal spiritual value with himself.

1 Corinthians 7:3-5 -- A husband also shows love by expressing affection and fulfilling the wife's sexual needs.

Turning the other cheek is a phrase in Christian doctrine that refers to responding to an aggressor without violence. The phrase originates from the Sermon on the Mount in the New Testament.

My fiance would 'never' try to harm me after we get married. It is fact. But if he was a different type person, the type that did that after we married, I have a strong healthy view on the issue. Here's a few lines from a song that explains my convictions better than I can word it .....

"If he wants a fight, well now he's got one...
He slapped my face and he shook me like a rag doll.
Don't that sound like a real man?
I'm gonna show him what little girls are made of, gunpowder and lead.
His fist is big but my gun's bigger.
He'll find out when I pull the trigger."

As for how God views a wife-beater ..... the wife-beating jerk can find that out from God when he sees him a few minutes later after he attacks me.

It's not really about what The Bible says about an abusive husband as it is what it says about how a man should treat and respect his wife:

Proverbs 18:22 - "Whoever gets a wife gets a good thing, and has the approval of the Lord."

Proverbs 19:14 - "House and wealth are a heritage from fathers, but a wife with good sense is from the Lord."

Luke 18:20 - "You have knowledge of what the law says: Do not be untrue to your wife.."

Being "untrue" to one's wife can mean more than just unfaithful. It also means disrespectful, mistreating, unconcerned, or abusive in any way.

BTW - I forget one of the best scriptures on this issue..

Ephesians 5:28 - "In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself."

That means disrespecting one's wife is disrespecting THEMSELVES.

Look upon the face of your abusive husband with love, when he goes to sleep beat him to death with a ballbat!

You can only be abused if you allow yourself to be abused. Stand up in his face and let him know that you will NOT be treated that way. If he loves you, he will listen, if he doesn't, it may be painful at first, but you will be better off without him. Verbal abuse is the worst kind because it stays hidden within you..no outer scars, and it does so much damage to your soul.
