But then someone who used to be my friend once said that the only reason a man will beat you is because he loves you. If you do something wrong to your man and he doesn't beat you then it's because he doesn't love you enough to expend his energy beating you. So basically if he doesn't love you that much then he will be too indifferent to beat you.
She added that she likes when her boyfriend beats her because it's then she knows how much he loves her.
So yes, I wasn't as surprised as I should have been when I saw that picture on Stella Dimoko's blog.
