This study discusses how male battering of women can be understood through due attention to contemporary psychological and sociological interpretations and concludes that a critical feminist perspective offers the most adequate explanation of the problem. The author concludes marriage is unsafe with regard to women and offers four criteria to measure what should constitute adequate Christian sexual ethics for intimate relationships.
