I have never been exposed to anything like that in my life and I reacted out of shock and horror at seeing two, grown, educated, well-dressed, and married wives of doctors fighting. (Well, four women if you count Lucy and Quad jumping in.) I felt as shattered our lamps and the broken glass in our pool.
As a woman, and especially as a mother of young children, I am against violence of any kind, especially violence against women. There is never an excuse for this and I am a strong believer in conflict resolution. I am educated on the cycle of violence. I teach my children to talk things out and they know not to hit each other. As a family, we work out our conflicts verbally and civilly.
I have been called a snob for some of my previous comments and nothing could be further from the truth. I do not feel that I am better than anyone. I choose to not be around women behaving badly. I value my time and how I spend it. I have lived by "it is not where you are from but where you are going that matters.'
