I think they are really missing the point. The degree of the beating is absolutely irrelevant to me. What I find so repellent is the assumption that the husband has the right to "correct" the "rebellious" wife, who appears to have the status of a naughty child. It wouldn't matter if the chastisement was not physical at all - if the wife was made to stand in the corner for an hour, or write out 100 times "I must not disobey my husband" - it would be just as disgusting. We are not talking about an argument between 2 adults, in which either side may annoy or upset the other.
