It's not "skirting around the issue", it's telling you how it is. It's not a beat, or a hit or anything.
And now you've gone from "hitting" to "degradation".
That's exactly the point, so why would a man hit his wife then? The Prophet(pbuh) never did it, so why would any Muslim do it, if it won't help his marriage or anything?
Well then, if you feel degraded, and you know it'll make you worst, your husband isn't really going to "tap" you then is he? Kills a point doesn't it?
Then don't tap lol, it's not hard. Islamic principle states that if it makes matters worse, why do it?
Then you havn't read the book at all. Like the actions of a narrow minded person, you've just gone and quoted selective verses, and made your own interpretations upon them.
If you did a little more research into the matter, as to why it was revealed in the first place, why are there even "stages" (why not go straight to the "degrading" tap?), then you wouldn't make such confirmation-bias based judgements.
Islam came down on a society that wouldn't tap women, but get out thick and long branched sticks, and if she ever went out of line, they would immediately beat her black and blue. Some may even end up dying from it, or being betted off (since betting your family is what they would sometimes do). If not that, then after the man died, his brother was allowed to "inherit" the wife for himself. Having guests around? Oh, why not have my wife pleasure you whilst you wait?
I think you really are clueless and ignorant, whether you want to admit it or not.
Firstly, that's long distances that they require a Mahram. And secondly, even when they escape, they should get help from anyone they possibly can, be it the police etc. And they will then arrest the man and his case will go on with a Qadi.
None of this is true and has been refuted above.
Love how you ignored this one from my previous post;
“As in all the congregations of the saints, women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission as the law says. If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church.” (I Corinthians 14:34-35)
So let me do a .exe IQ.
"UM, IF WOMAN CAN'T TALK IN CHURCHES, THEN DOES THAT MEAN THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SPEAK IF THEY FEEL THAT THEIR HUSBAND IS GOING TO KILL THEM AFTER?"
