Wife Stabs Husband 5 Times For Texting, He Refuses to Press Charges



The nation has been fixated on discussing domestic violence since Ray Rice knocked his then-fiancée Janay in a dispute that occurred on an elevator, but the conversation is often one-sided, with the man being the perpetrator and the woman being the victim.

Sadly, many people are unaware that more than 40 percent of domestic abuse victims are male, which is a strong indication for a need to have a broader conversation about domestic violence that is inclusive of male victims. If that’s not convincing enough, perhaps this is: A 54-year-old man of Youngstown, OH called the police on his wife after the woman stabbed him for texting a friend.
According to a police report, officers were called at approximately 10:45 p.m. on Wednesday to a house on reports of a stabbing. When police arrived, they found the man conscious and bleeding in the bathroom. He told police his wife became angry after she found out that he texted a friend. The couple argued and the woman left the house, according to the report.
The disgruntled wife returned several hours later and another argument ensued. The man said his wife went to the kitchen where she retrieved a butcher knife and told him she was going to stab him. The man said, “Do what you gotta do,” and she stabbed him five times in the upper torso, according to the report. A local news station reports the man wrestled the knife away from his wife and she fled the scene.
The man was treated at local hospital and refuses to press charges against his wife; however, police are investigating the case and charges may still be filed. “If there is any other way we can prove that case we do,” said Mahoning County Assistant Prosecutor Becky Doherty. “We do utilize other evidence even if the victim is uncooperative.”
The main evidence the police need is the wife’s side of the story and more evidence to prove that she did stab her husband.

Ephesians 5:
22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.


Deuteronomy 28:
56 The tender and delicate woman among you, which would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom, and toward her son, and toward her daughter,
