Are men always the perpetrators of domestic violence or do they become victims as well?

Mani Lama

Well, men are in many cases the ones to start domestic violence but there have been cases where they have fallen victims too. One of the main reasons why male abuse exists is because of the rigid belief of different religions/ethnic groups. Men in many cultures are tagged as the strong ones. They are implanted with the thought that they should hide their pain. Hence in many situations despite being assaulted physically, mentally and emotionally, men still tolerate and keep it hush.
