You can use this to your advantage.

"But honey, can you do it? You're so strong and you make it look so easy."

Then sit on the couch and watch a game.

Huh??? Never heard about a wives beating up their husbands??
You need to read this:
Why Battered Men Stay in Abusive Relationships | Reasons Men Stay | Emotional Battering | Men
MenWeb-Domestic violence. 835,000 battered men each year, silent too Long...
Husbands are battered as much as wives in the U.S. they are just to ashamed to admit that.
Half of spousal murders are committed by wives, a statistic that has been stable over time. Women kill almost as often as men do in the context of family murders.
There is a mile long resource list for abused men:

If that is in response to my response I have never beat my Husband. I have however beaten the daylights out of some school yard bulllies when I was younger. Nothing wrong with defending yourself and giving the person incentive to never be stupid enough to attack you again right?

I would also like to note that I appreciate your post because alot of men feel ashamed if a woman overpowers them and do not know how to seek help. My mother beats the daylights out of my step father and he would never strike her back because of his beliefs. It kepts escalating to where she tried to stab him with knives on seperate occasions. Unfortunatly my step father is STILL in this relationship because he honestly loves my mother.

If any man out there can see this post please know that you do not deserve to be abused and that violence of this kind usually escalates until one of you is dead unless you get out of the relationship and get away from that person! There is no shame in admitting that your SO is a completely crazy ***** and to make sure that she will not only never hurt you again but also others.

Once embolded like any attacker who knows that their victim will not fight back they become far more likely to hurt you worse, to hurt themselves, to hurt children, to hurt others and to hurt animals.

God bless anyone in this kind of 'relationship'!

Remember that you deserve the three things that all humans need to be happy which are love, attention and respect.

Take care of yourselves out there.

My gf has done ballet her whole life. I'm generally stronger than her, but she's all leg, and could probably kick through a brick wall So, I'll lift the groceries... and her... and the furniture... but, if we ever need to kick a door in...

If I get married and my wife is stronger than I am, something bad happened.

I know what I am talking about. Show me any woman (who is not married to an invalid), who can beat her husband at:

Arm wrestling
Pull Ups
Push Ups

Again, I exclude cardio activity.

So only Arm Wrestling, Pull Ups and Push Ups can be used to gauge the physical strength difference between a man and a woman?

What about something like the martial arts where much less powerful people can beat the physically stronger?
