“I was scared what she was going to do.”
A Texas woman allegedly assaulted her common-law husband this week after the man didn’t respond when asked if she was pretty.
According to Fox 7, Lizeth Guadalupe Ramirez, 20, was arrested after the Tuesday night incident. The husband said the couple was at a movie theater when Ramirez asked him if she looked pretty.

Ramirez’s husband claimed he did not hear the question, so did not offer a response. From there, Ramirez became so upset they were forced to leave the theater.
During the ride home, Ramirez’s husband claimed she repeatedly hit him. The husband alleged the beatings continued once the couple arrived home, where his wife continued to assault him even after another family member intervened in an attempt to stop her.
Despite telling responding officers that it was her husband who assaulted and attempted to strangle her, Ramirez was arrested and charged with two counts of assault and family violence according to the report.
In the #MeToo era, men have been under increased scrutiny when it comes to issues of physical assault. However, incidents in which men have been on the receiving end of abusive relationships have also made headlines on occasion. On some occasions, male victims have expressed their unwillingness to fight back against their abusers due to societal stigma.
Alex Skeel, a 22-year-old British man, had to be rescued by police after enduring months of domestic abuse in a case highlighted by a BBC documentary on male abuse victims.
“I was scared what she was going to do,” Skeel told the BBC in an interview about his ordeal.
According to the National Domestic Violence Hotline, a large number of men face domestic violence, and their experiences are often dismissed. One in seven American men has endured “severe” domestic violence, according to the organization.
