Ms.Gu, 61, demanded a divorce with her husband Mr.Zhao, 59, as well as a prohibition that he never “get close” to her at the people’s court of Fangshan district, Beijing city on March 1, 2016. This has become the first writ of habeas corpus issued since China’s first law on domestic violence takes effect yesterday.

Ms.Gu and her husband got acquainted at the beginning of1982, and got married on May, 5th of the year. Their first child, a daughter was born in 1983, and a son in 1991.

According to Ms.Gu, her husband constantly bullied her during their 35-year marriage. In a fight on August 12, 2015, Ms. Gu’s nose was broken and she displayed photos of bleeding and bruises at the court.

However, Mr. Zhao didn’t agree with the accusation.

“She should be the one responsible for this. She hit me with a rolling pin. I was hit on the head and it swelled with a bump. She tried to kill me! So I took the pin from her hands and hit her. And there was another time she also beat me, but I don’t have any evidence. I felt it was her fault. And I’m against the divorce,” Mr.Zhao said.

“I insist on the divorce,”Ms. Gu said with determination.

“You’ve got to think twice!” said a man who self-claimed to be Ms. Gu’s relative, “What about the kids? I’ll be your middleman. I’ll let him write a promise for you.”

“I promise I’ll never beat you again,” Mr.Zhao said, kneeling in front of Ms.Gu.

“He used to say he’d never beat me again, but it was not true. I was bullied for over thirty years. I will not trust him,” Ms. Gu sobbed, covering her face.

China’s first-ever Domestic Violence Law took effect on March 1. Among the many measures to protect victims, abusers could be ordered to move out of their homes.

impossible to know who is telling the truth, but if she insists on a divorce I would take her side
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you
