Some­times women ag­gra­vate a sit­u­a­tion of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence. it was said yes­ter­day. Speaker to Par­lia­ment Dr Jiko Lu­veni made these com­ments while speak­ing on the is­sue of vi­o­lence against women and chil­dren dur­ing the Rishkul Sanatan Col­lege Pro­fes­sional De­vel­op­ment Pro­gramme in Nas­inu. How­ever, she said a hus­band and wife should learn to work to­gether in or­der to build a lov­ing and en­joy­able re­la­tion­ship. “If they can en­joy and make life work be­tween them­selves then there will be no vi­o­lence,” she said. She said a woman must know the per­son­al­ity of her hus­band. “Some­times we women ag­gra­vate the sit­u­a­tion; some­times we know ex­actly what our hus­bands don’t like and then we do it; what do you ex­pect?” Dr Lu­veni said. She said women and men were saviours for each other. “So we women we re­ally need to also be aware that our hus­bands also have a tem­per,” Dr Lu­veni said. She said anger was a be­havioural prob­lem. “You can’t at­tend a work­shop or train­ing for one week and when the trainer leaves; you are ex­pected to change; it takes time to change, go through the process to change your vi­o­lent ways but only divine in­ter­ven­tion can change you overnight,” she said.

So we women we re­ally need to also be aware that our hus­bands also have a tem­per.
