I agree. This advice was even given to me by my (male) divorce attorney. As my ex husband slandered me and maligned my character I was told that to respond was retaliatory and would make me look worse. So because he struck first, he could keep striking and injuring me and because I had tried to be civilized, I was forced to sit there and take it. Never again. Never.
