I may be in the minority here - but IMO I really don't thing this is a big deal. I bet there are a lot of couples out there who have had longtime successful relationships that may have a few totally out of character shoving matches hidden in their closet brought about my extraodinary circumstances or stresses. This may not be PC but IMO I don't see it as the same thing as a man hitting a women. I believe the cut on the lip was a fluke and Byron at no time was scared or in danger.
I do think its very ironic though if that cut was caused by the diamond ring which ABC bought for their engagement! Now what a hoot is that?!
Ok I'm going to vent now - its like all this zero tolerance crap in schools etc. - but why then do we have all these award winning movies which have some kind of fight as its climax? In fact just even think about Scarlett O'Hara in "Gone with the Wind" - doesn't she have a hiting fit on Rhet? At times, as a society we are very hypocritical when it comes to violence. Fighting when it comes down to it, is normal animal behaviour and as much as we try to rise above it, we are only human and a slave to our instincts. I'm not condoning this type of behaviour and we should always strive to be better people but in the end we all make mistakes like this sometime. Its just too bad theirs is being splashed all over the media.
