This project is concerned with exploring how gender socialization affects males, females, and causes gender-conflict on masculinity. I apply a pastoral care approach for treating perpetrators of military domestic violence from my faith tradition, which is The United Methodist Church's doctrines and its resolutions. Throughout my research, I learned that pastors must actively preach from the pulpit about their church's stances on marital rape, battering, and the cycle of violence against women, while educating parents to be flexible with gender-role socialization. In this research, I suggest pastoral care techniques, for all faith based traditions, that will provide a congregational support network to help the victims and hold the perpetrators accountable for their actions.
