I think the operative word here is "man"... a man discovers his "woman" doing whatever (fill in your own details, folks) and the "man" kills or beats her. It's a "man" thing... in Islam, one never, if ever, hears of a woman murdering her "man". It still seems to me in Islam, it's a man vs woman issue... women are not equal but another possession a mere commodity. "Man" is at the top of the social heap, whilst women are to "honor and obey" or else.... and "else" is not a great alternative.
