Actually, in our society we have different type of peoples who have different thoughts and thinking. Some people are very loving and polite with their family and they live a very happy and relax life. But some people have mentally disturbed and they have poor and bad mentality in which they have bad language and very cheap behavior. Such people not show their bad habit only close persons know about their cheap habits.so their habits suffer their wives and those who have in a relationship with them. We try to help such type of people and support them to live their lives in a happy and relax manner. And their families has to support them, they behaving well and do such acts which give them happiness and relaxation.
Such family members must be treated very much carefully and as well they should be treated very much softly so that they can improve their bad habits. Such effected persons may suffer very much in their lives. They lose their self-confidence and they may losses their strengths in their daily routine life. Such confident people if not treated softly and carefully then they will be a bad curse for the nation and the people lives in their surroundings. (Battered Woman Syndrome)
