Violent Man Ordered to Marry Girlfriend

A judge has ordered a 25-year-old man who was convicted of punching his girlfriend in the mouth, to marry her within nine months or risk being jailed. The judged stated, "I happen to believe in traditional values: boy meets girl, boy ask girl out, boy and girl go steady, boy and girl get married, and then, the boy and girl start having a family." The man pleaded no contest to domestic violence.

The judge gave the 25-year-old man a suspended four months sentence, fined him $100, placed him on nine months' probation, and ordered him to undergo counseling.

Weakness in the Justice System
We need stronger laws to protect women and children against sexual and violent acts committed against them.This is a worldwide problem.


1. Should the judge have ordered this man to marry his girlfriend?
2. How do you feel about the judge's thoughts on relationships?

The Price We Must Pay For Our Father’s Sins is a heartfelt story that deals with sex, power, and violence. Such men use their power to commit violent acts against innocent people without remorse.
