Most often at Christmas you see stories of marriage proposals and engagements. I know my social media timelines were full of statuses expressing ‘She said Yes!’ and reports of new life events such “Engaged to” and “in a Relationship”. It’s certainly a happy time of celebration for most. But for a couple in South Carolina it was quite a different turn of events.

According to WISTV in South Carolina, a man was stabbed on Christmas Day after an argument ensued with his fiancé over choosing their wedding colors for their upcoming wedding event.

Police responded to a residence at Twin Pond Road near Blythewood around 8:30 pm. There they found a man who had been stabbed in his upper body. Further questioning revealed that the man had been arguing with his fiancé over their wedding color scheme and when the man tried to leave the home, his 34 year old soon-to-be bride, Krysta James stabbed him.

The man was transported to Providence Hospital by witnesses at the scene then transported to Palmetto Health Richland where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Ms. James was arrested and charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature by authorities. She was released on a $10,000 bond on Friday.

This sounds like one of those cases where you hear when someone shows you who they really are you should believe them.



So that this doesn’t happen to you, here are some tips on how to avoid domestic violence, according to

1) Leave if your spouse hits the walls, throws objects or tries to put their hands on you.

2) Keep the local abuse shelter on your cell phone, even if you are a man.  Men get physically abused too.

3) Keep any records of previous arrests or protective orders.  You may need them to prove your case later on.  If you are a regular victim of such abuse, consider installing a hidden camera to be used later as evidence.

4) Don’t remain silent. Tell someone if you are being abused.

5) Leave before arguments get out of control.  The best way to avoid being attacked is to not be in the presence of the attacker.
