do culture & social beliefs trigger domestic violence

I believe for far too long, people in our society have used culture and social values as an excuse for domestic violence. How one chooses to behave as an individual is completely a personal choice. People shouldn’t use the shield of culture and society to behave badly. As an individual, we have a choice as well as the power to follow the right path and behave as a moral human being. Hence there are no excuses for domestic violence. Individuals should be held responsible and accountable for their actions. We should not allow them to tarnish the beauty of our culture and society by linking it to their wicked action.
