For husbands who feel put upon by their spouses, consider yourself lucky. A 33-year-old man named Zhang executed a formal contract under which his wife, a kung fu expert, is allowed to beat him no more than once a week.
Zhang reported that he was actually beaten by the woman before they married, but the abuse continued after they were wed. She explained that “I don’t want to beat him, but arguments are inevitable and I can’t help myself.”
He explained that his wife often gets out of control during arguments, which end up with “bruises and scars all over”. It appears that the law of contract has been the missing element in their relationship. She observed “now that we have a contract, I will force myself to drop the use of force.”

My story is much too sad to be told,
but practically everything
leaves me totally cold.
The only exception i know is the case,
when i’m out on a quiet spree,
fighting vainly the old enui
and i suddenly turn and see,
your fabulous face.
I get no kick from Champagne
Mere alchohol doesn’t thrill me at all
so tell me why should it be true
that i get a kick
out of you
Some get a kick from cocain
i’m sure that if i took even one sniff
that would bore me terrificly too
yet i get a kick out of you
i get a kick every time i see you standing there before me
i get a kick though its clear to me you obviously don’t
I get no kick in a plane
Flying too high
with some guy in the sky is my idea of nothing to do
Yet i get a kick
Out of you

Whip me, spank me, make me write bad checks. lol
Some contract clauses are unenforceable … as foo says, maybe not in China.
““I don’t want to beat him, but arguments are inevitable and I can’t help myself.” Classic abuser argument. Amazing how she can “help herself” once the law becomes involved. Jail time would bring that inability to help herself down to no beatings.
P.S. I thought you had to get the permission of President Bush or Obama to legally beat someone else up like that.
We learned in contract law (sorry Prof Turley) that contracts between family members are not enforceable. I guess it’s different in China.
“I don’t want to beat him, but arguments are inevitable and I can’t help myself.”
Wow. Mrs. Flipkid and I haven’t had a single arguement in 23 years of marriage. So much for inevitability.
