French to Criminalize 'Psychological Violence' in Marriages

As if men needed any more disincentive to marry
France will become the first country in the world to ban 'psychological violence' within marriage later this year.

The new law, which would also apply to co-habiting couples, would see people getting criminal records for insulting their loved ones during domestic arguments.
I wonder if the Frogs are really deluded enough to believe this will encourage couples to get along or if they are trying to discourage marriage/co-habitation to the point that the French population dies out. For such cultural fascists, it's bizarre that they'd enact the swiftest possible means of cultural suicide.

How would you even objectively apply this law? With physical violence, either you hit someone or you didn't, but 'psychological' is extremely subjective: what hurts my feelings may bounce off of you. And if the psychological abuse is so bad that you have to make a criminal of your partner, why not just get a divorce?

Lastly, if there was any real justice in the world, this would put half of all women in electronic ankle bracelets, because most women are far more 'psychologically violent' than men. Ask any girl who went to public school.

But there won't be any justice with this law. As with racism, the law will be interpreted in favor of the "oppressed" class; and "justice" almost always means sticking it to the politically-incorrect group.
