Data were collected via interviews and analyzed via software Alceste and Bardin Analysis of Contend. Data demonstrated predominance of traditional gender concepts and minimization of physical and emotional consequences of violence to wives, themselves and to their relationships. We discuss the participants difficults on dealing with their partners behaviors, which they believe are inappropriate for a good woman.Violence is used to control their partners and also to preserve traditional masculinity.
