Domestic violence: Would you sign this contract to help to reduce domestic violence or even to find marital bliss?
An employer can at any time dismiss an employee without justification and have that employee imprisoned if he objects too strongly to his dismissal. For example, if the employee raises his voice in anger he may be arrested for ‘violence’. In any event, an employer can dismiss an employee regardless of the circumstances, and at his sole discretion. He can fire him from his job whenever he wishes, no matter how long the employee has served with the company and even if the employee has done absolutely nothing wrong. Further, the employer can insist that the employee is evicted from his own house and never allowed to re-enter it. An employer may further demand that the sacked employee must, under threat of imprisonment, forfeit part of any future income to the employer for some considerable time into the future.

How about including the following clause? Will that be an improvement?
A woman can at any time dismiss her male partner without justification and have that partner imprisoned if he objects too strongly to his dismissal. For example, if he raises his voice in anger he may be arrested for ‘domestic violence’. In any event, a woman can dismiss the man regardless of the circumstances and at her sole discretion. She can fire him from his jobs as father and partner whenever she wishes, no matter how long he has served the family and even if he has done absolutely nothing wrong. Further, the woman can insist that the man is evicted from his own house and never allowed to re-enter it. If she has children, a woman may further demand that her sacked partner must, under threat of imprisonment, forfeit part of any of his future income to the woman and her children for some considerable time into the future – and this is the case even if her children turn out not to be his.

See the extensive discussion of the two “contracts,” of which the second one is sadly the reality that feminism gradually imposed on society during the last four decades or so.* For additional details regarding the reality of today’s marriages or, for that matter, any relationship between men and women, refer also to advice for men.
*A note of caution: Discussions of the “contracts” make extensive references to US statistics on spousal murders. The assumption in the discussions usually is that the statistics pertaining to men and women who became victims of spousal murders are equally valid. That is a wrong assumption.
The declining number of men classified as having been murdered by intimates is most likely due to the escalating efforts by feminists to hold women blameless under any and all circumstances.
Men comprise the vast and overwhelming majority of victims in a very large proportion of unsolved murder cases. It is quite likely that a large proportion of those male victims of these unsolved murder cases are victims of spousal murders.
Furthermore, women are less likely to be suspected, many times more likely than men not to be prosecuted or to be acquitted, twice as likely as men to use contract killers, and more likely than men to have their murder charges pleaded down to lesser charges such as manslaughter or accidental deaths. (If they did it right, women will hardly ever be suspected of having murdered their husbands or spouses, unless they became “bereaved” at least three times in a row.)
For those reasons, many spousal murders committed by women will not show up as domestic violence crimes.
For a detailed discussion of those circumstances refer to Spousal Homicide and Research, by Eeva Sodhi.
Most importantly, spousal murders comprise a very small proportion of all murders and an insignificant fraction of all causes of deaths, smaller than the deaths caused by surgical misadventure or by falling out of bed. (See US Leading Causes of Death and Falling out of Bed)
