Marriage is a sacred institution where two consenting adults swear under the law and God that they’ll support and care for each other.
Quite simply, it’s when two people who love each other share their lives together. Naturally, problems occur in the household, that’s a part of life.
However, when domestic violence starts to happen within a marriage more frequently, then what should be a beautiful unity becomes a nightmare. Often times you hear stories of an abusive husband who berates or even beats his partner.
Sometimes those stories of abuse take it way too far.
According to the tabloid website Abante Tonite, a 53-year-old wife named Vivian Carido was kicked, beaten, struck on the face and most disturbingly, was tied to a wall using a metal chain by her abusive husband Emmanuel Carido, 53.
The report states that the couple was residing at the Baseco Compound in Metro Manila. At around 6PM, Vivian was away from her home for a visit to a neighbor’s home. A hungry Emmanuel, angry because his wife hadn’t prepared dinner, stormed over the neighbor’s house.
Crashing into the neighbor's house, he kicked his wife right on the spot. Vivian fell down and her husband began beating the poor woman. He even whipped the elderly lady with a metal chain link.
Vivian pleaded to her husband, "Wala akong pera, meron konti para naman sa pangangailangan ng mga anak ko sa eskwela."
The husband stopped when their child came to their house. Vivian took that opportunity to escape.
According to Vivian, her husband was a drunk who would frequently beat her and their child when he becomes too intoxicated.
Vivian has filed pending charges against Emmanuel for violating R.A.9262 known as the Violence Against Women and Children Act.
