Family systems theorists believe that an analysis of wife battering that focuses on family processes does not imply that the system processes alone are responsible for the violence.

Our society has flourished under this model by dividing the labor force in half, encouraging women to remain at home and care for their husbands and children while husbands leave the home to provide a living for their families (Dobash, 1979).
