Putting your hands on someone unprovoked and unjustified is always a big no no. These cases often happen in relationships, where the male or female will often hit each other. You often hear more of males striking the female partner, as males are more physically threatening than females in general. However, domestic violence caused by females often goes unnoticed.
Regardless, when putting hands on a female partner, there is also the risk of retaliation by family members. A person’s luck may run out if the female has a big bad brother.
