Might I chime in?. the huffington post article clearly says, there were signs of breaking things and crude language. I have a problem with that, regardless of who he is. Why does ley 54 assert that crude language is a domestic abuse crime.Chances are if it was me {whom lives here, The police wouldnt have even shown up! But my wife said that this has happened to him before. It just was not reported.Word has it that there were threats of violence and custody of children?.Women!

As a victim of social abuse (for decades) I tend to identify and side with women, when it comes to spousal problems; especially if she depends on him, has less power, socially and economically and has to prove her case (to authorities), for complaining.

I was wondering the same thing, myself.

What couple doesn't have verbal spats that the children might be witness too?

The police would have a hard time in most places.

That is really hazy.

Whatever proffesional that consulted with the authors of bill doesn't know about parenting in real time.

Ladies and Gentlemen,
The issue on politics notwithstanding, the real issue was domestic violence. No one, and I mean NO-ONE should have to talk or abuse their respective spouses like that. If things get heated up, just go for a walk to cool off, period.

Especially if the one abusing his partner is the same one who goes around pointing fingers against anyone who abuses their spouses, as it happened in Ferrer's case.

That's what happens to those who ride the "high horse".

AMEN BROTHER,amen!

The Puertorican male is too macho and should learn to relax a lil more. Take a hint from our fellow Eskimo brothers in ALASKA. If you visit and stay overnight, you may sleep with the wife.
Imagine if that was implemented in Puerto Rico. I'd be the first to visit Marc Anthony and his soon to be ex-wife Jennifer Lopez.:-)

Did he hit her?

I have yet to her that.

They both sound like two hotheads who were mismatched.

They should have ended it long ago.

Now, it cost him.

==========

On another note. I saw him yesteday in an interview. He looked serene, content and resolute.

Best luck to him.

Yea but he did not hit/strike her........so whats the crime? i agree with TPMP. No hit= no crime. This appears to be nothing more than a political ploy to destroy him.

Yes, it is. Especially if children see it. If you are the macho type, then look at my previous post on subject.
At any time the argument becomes heated and or violent it's considered abuse. BECAUSE ...a child cannot tell how serious or not is the argument, feelings of guilt, blame, dissapointment, outrage, and many others affect the child / spouse and neighbors and in-laws, as was exactly the case. In Puerto Rico one cannot afford to take ANY domestic violence lightly, where there are 20-30 murders / year.
Get a clue or get counseling.:-)

According to Ferrer's partner, there was a pattern...of threats, heated arguments, etc.

In my opinion, when this happens, the first partner to "cry for help", has the upper hand.

In this case, it was the woman.

Let's wait how everything unfolds, when the case goes to trial (for Ferrer Rios has to tell his side of the story and if convincing, may signal the return to politics).

He better establish a solid defense for his future's at stake.

That happens all the time.

IT is hazy territory.

Expecuilly with two latin hotheads!.....LOL!

I maintain that she was nobody's prize herself.

The thing is that the timing was bad. PR has been having some serious issues with domestic violence as of late. He is a public figure and people expect politicians to set an example.

There is a public conciousness now. People have gone "hyper" on this issue.

It is getting to the point where any type of disgreement can potentially be called "domestic violence".

What happened to good old fashioned couples disagreement?

Where will this end eventually?

==========

The whole Hector thing thing was blown out of proportion.

It cost him. There wer alo larger forces at work. I am coming to that belief now.

Just my humble opinion.

==========

Hopefully he will reform himself and get things back on track.

Puede ser, hermano, puede ser.

Todo cabe en el terreno de la especulación.

Pero, then again, aunque tarde, nuestra población femenina al fin pudo zafarse del yugo del patriarcado; siendo ésta la razón por la cual hay tanta violencia doméstica.

En adición, nuestro jíbaro siempre ha sido de muy pocas palabras (y con machete en mano, acababa las discusiones).

Nuestro per cápita, when it comes to domestic murders, is quite high, in comparison with the rest of the 1st world's average.

I tend to write in both languages and have never asked you, how's your Spanish...

If you haven´t complained, I bet is as good as anyone's.....

Am I right?

Well, hermano.

Not exactly.

I do read it perfectly, though.

I understand all your posts and enjoy when you mix it up. It sounds so "boricua" (You know what i mean)..LOL!. Nobody does "code switching" like us. I learned about that term from a linguist.

May in humbly say that my ability to speak it not too shabby, either.

Obviously not like a native speaker.
