    she slapped him into accepting the proposal.

    Hi,

    she slapped him into accepting the proposal.

    I've just come across this sentence when surfing the net.

    Is this idiomatic?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: she slapped him into accepting the proposal.

    It could be literal or could mean that she pressured him.
