          Man Accused Of Domestic Abuse: ‘It’s Not Like I Wake Up In The Morning Just Trying To Beat My Wife’


          September 5, 2017

          Sky moved to the U.S from Australia when she married Josh. About six months into the marriage, she claims, he became physically abusive.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Family Feud?

          Josh admits to having punched her on the arm, kicked her in the groin, pulled her hair, and slapped her in the face.

          “It’s not like I wake up in the morning just trying to beat my wife. I didn’t realize I had all these anger problems until I met Sky,” says Josh. “She purposely pushes my buttons,” says Josh, claiming Sky has been physically abusive toward him as well, saying “She has pinched my legs, bitten me – put me in a choke hold.”

          “It’s ridiculous,” says Sky, denying Josh’s claims. She claims he’s fabricated injuries just to get her arrested and thrown in jail for domestic violence.

          Why does Josh say that he can’t fix his own problems until Sky fixes hers?
