4The Christian church vacillates between support of wife beating and encouraging husbands to be more compassionate and using moderation in their punishments of their wives.
Since by law, a husband is held liable for crimes committed by his wife, this law was designed to protect the husband from harm caused by the wife’s actions.
These laws permit the husband to beat his wife with a rod or switch as long as its circumference is no greater than the girth of the base of the man’s right thumb, hence “The Rule of Thumb.” The tradition of these laws is perpetuated in English Common Law and throughout most of Europe.
Under these laws, the husband has absolute rights to physically discipline his wife.So what are your options when you are in the middle of being terminated and the company is demanding you to sign off on some paperwork? If the termination letter is asking for a confession or admission of guilt or is stating you that you give up some employee rights, you can opt not to sign it.For example, if the company wants you to say you quit and you are being laid off, are you still eligible for unemployment?All you want to do is to get as far away from this situation as possible and you are ready to sign anything just to get out of the room.Then the reality of “oh what did I just do” sets in.
