Entry: Chris Benoit and domestic violence. Tuesday, June 26, 2007

This is to anyone who's having problems in their home.

Arguments will arise, and problems will develop in any relationship.  Married couples - or better yet, any situation involving two people - will have their differences, and they will get heated.

But if it gets to the point where you're ready to put your hands on someone, please, just walk out the door.  Whether it's just to catch a breath of fresh air, or even permanently.

My grandmother and grandfather argued constantly.  And when my grandfather couldn't take it any longer, he moved....from North Carolina to Baltimore.  And yes; that was a tough situation for my father and his brothers, having to live without their father for most of their childhood.

But, at least they're alive.

However, despite a number of Chris Benoit's friends saying there were some serious problems with that marriage to Nancy - a relationship that began on very unscrupulous terms to begin with, I might add - the fact is that he didn't leave, and they continued to let problems brew to a boiling point.

And now, two adults are dead, along with their child, who was caught in the middle of it.

It's not worth it.  Get out.  And if need be, seek some help.

Wrestling fans are going to real sensitive in the upcoming days and weeks when hearing less-than-positive reports and comments about the Benoit tragedy.  But whether they want to admit it or not, some of the stuff that will be said will be legitimate, and accurate.

The fact is, Benoit allowed his anger and rage to get the best of him.  He should have not been home last weekend.  He should have left.

Benoit shouldn't held up in honor and reverance.  Far from it.  This death should serve as a lesson for abusive spouses and parents as to what can happen if you allow your emotions to take you over the brink. 

You could end up doing something you might regret, and you can't take back.
