So my wife asked me awhile ago that if I had to hit her, if I would punch her or slap her.

I believe that a punch is a statement of equality while a slap, although much less harmful, is an act of dominance. What is DDO's opinion?

Very tempted to make an S&M joke... very, very tempted.

I've wrestled with several guys I've gone out (and, ahem, gone home) with. But two guys grappling each other on the floor is different than a guy hitting a girl. The former is actually equal, whereas the latter, regardless of "how" the hit occurs, is almost invariably going to be unacceptable. But even still, I would never hit someone I was romantically involved with.

I'll borrow from TUF this time:

"wut?"

After controlling my head shaking (not from age this time, either), and thinking about your question, I would say that you are mostly right (again, this question was a head shaker and I haven't really thought about it much.) My caveat would be that it depends on the context.

I won't try to explain right away, but if there is interest...

Suffice it to say that a much larger, stronger person can dominate a weaker person with either punches or slaps or baseball bats or ...

I think your wife is keeping a secrete from you to spare your ego. just sayin
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

I always punch my wife.
It's more fun.

I see slapping as more of an physical emphasis on what you are saying, or shock value without too much damage ("come to your senses!!!"). I think dominance correlates to it, but not necessarily is related.
My work here is, finally, done.

I've never been good at still punches, I always move way too much.

It mostly depends on context. A slap generally correlates to "minor offenses" while a punch would likely only emerge In a full-on fight (or extreme rage).

I mean, males are just as capable of slapping - and do slap - other males.

It depends on the relationship of the two.

Husband to wife= punch is worse than slap.

Punch is considered ordinary, but slap is very insulting.

I believe a punch is a show of force while a slap is more of a taunt.

I agree.

Punches do more damage...except for when you develop a legit slap. If you slap someone right, you can pop their eardrum:D

I suppose it's rather fortuitous that I keep my pimp hand strong then.

A punch would be worse, because it could do more damage. However I think a slap is more disrespect.

I slap my boyfriend all the time. I figure a slap means "shaddup", while a punch means "i will hurt you". But then again, I'm a black belt in tae kwon do so a punch actually would hurt. A slap just messes up his hair and reminds him who's boss.

I'm a woman, so if I had the choice I'd probably slap my wife and wouldn't get called out on it.

Well a slap could mean all kinds of things... a slap on the face would be total disrespect or shame, whereas a slap on the @ss might be foreplay... or a slap on the back could be a gesture of friendship/congratulations, but a slap on the feet would be how Saddam Hussein punished his olympic soccer team for failing to win Iraq the gold.
