Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength. ~St. Francis de Sales, Bishop of Geneva and Doctor of the Church, 16th century
If you get physical with your significant other, be careful because it does not take much to be arrested and charged with Assault family violence or domestic Assault. If you intentionally or knowingly cause your significant other bodily injury, you could be thrown in jail and charged with this serious class A misdemeanor charge. Bodily injury is defined in the Texas Penal Code as "physical pain". Obviously, it does not take much to cause someone physical pain. You do not have to beat him or her up to get charged. If you slap your wife or girlfriend, she may call the cops on you. If you plead guilty or are found guilty, then you cannot own a firearm under federal law and if you do it again you will be charged with a third degree felony.
