A Florida judge has ordered a man accused of grabbing his wife by the neck and shoving her into the back of their couch to take the woman out on a proper date.
This is a wildly inappropriate ruling. He also ordered counseling, which if that is to be done as a couple, is also inappropriate. Marriage counseling is not the way to go in DV situations. What happens is that either the person being abused is too afraid to open up ( there by defeating the purpose of therapy) or they do open up and then this triggers another violent incident because the abuser didn’t like what was said.
