France to ban 'psychological violence' in marriage
PARIS — France is to pass a law banning "psychological violence within the couple" and study the idea of tagging violent partners to prevent them stalking their victims, the government said Wednesday.
Prime Minister Francois Fillon announced the measures in a speech to mark the United Nations' tenth International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, promising legislation in the first half of nest year.
"It's an important step forward: the creation of this offence will allow us to deal with the most insidious situations, situations that leave no visible scars, but which leave their victims torn up inside," he said.
It is a good move to prevent women from violent attack from ex-husbands and partners. It is also beneficial because it will make vengeful males close the door on women who have hurt them by preventing stalking and other kinds of emotional payback.
According to the report, a convicted wifebeater will be forced to wear a "watch-sized electronic bracelet" that will triger an alarm whenever the wife-beater gets close to former victim.
The problems I envisaged is some women using this to pay-back their former partners. Secondly, this will also hinder any chance of the couple coming together to talk, make up, or solve their problems.
