Ya got that right. Almost as bad as the old Groucho Marx joke - "Answer yes or no - have you stopped beating your wife?" A guy in Alberta when I lived there told me as many men as women are beaten by their spouses but they are too embarrassed to report it (which I highly doubt)
Apparently that is very true.
I was hit by a boyfriend once. Once. He wasn't my boyfriend after that but I definitely didn't tell anyone. I didn't want to be "that girl" and I was very young.
