I don’t understand a spouse who is violent with their partner for being extremely ill.

Someone who becomes sick and eventually disabled isn’t stupid and necessarily incompetent.

Just because someone gets sick and can’t work as a result, this doesn’t mean that that person should be reprimanded and beaten repeatedly.
