Sexual dysfunction, jealousy and asking for a divorce were among the factors that led to cases of domestic violence recorded by the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry.
Its Deputy Minister Hannah Yeoh said "of the 1,037 domestic violence cases reported between 2017 and June 2018, 56 cases, or 5.4% involved husbands who were the victims,” adding that she is also worried that many more cases go unreported – including husbands who are abused by their wives.
