My wife is very hot tempered and she like to hit me when she lose her temper. She will dig her fingernail into my skin and sometimes she will slam my head against the wall. I don't want to hit her back. I love her. I believe she loves me too. How can I calm her down. And stop her from abusing me like this.

Oh dear, I'm so sorry this is happening to you. When someone says domestic abuse, they always equate it to husbands abusing wives but the opposite happens too and unfortunately, not talked about alot because of social stigma, gender roles etc. I suggest you try talking to your wife about this when she is calm. Approach the topic lightly since she is hot tempered, find out the source of her anger. Let her know how much it hurts when she hits you and suggest to talk it out instead. If things get too out of control, maybe you can get a third party to help? A close, trusted family member or even a family counsellor? There could be some underlying deep seeded reason to your wife's anger and abusive ways...
