Letters: A good time for a day of reckoning for spousal abusers

A good time for a day of reckoning for spousal abusers

The national reckoning of sexual harassment in the workplace is awakening severe response to the predators and their inappropriate behavior to their victims.

Hopefully another group of victims will be recognized. They are the spouses of “married criminals,” who sexually abuse (spousal rape, control, groping, fear tactics, threats, etc.) their partner.

The perpetrators think this is “allowed” because the victim is married to them, and “belongs” to them; the spousal victims endure the abuse to protect their children and family from the hubris of their explosive temper.

We can only hope these predators too will have their reckoning for the pain and hurt they have caused.
