    What would you do if some guy called your wife an extremely filthy and insulting name in a public place?

    Simple question. Not so simple answer.

    (I am posting this in the Law Forum, because I am mainly - but not entirely - concerned with a discussion of the legal consequences that might arise from such a situation.)

    OK - he drops like a sack of clams. As he lies there on the floor, he screams: "Call the police!" Someone does.

    Now what do you do?

    Walk away.. if I'm stopped I suffer the consequences. The consequences of inaction would be too high a price to pay, it's my obligation to protect my wife's honor. I have no other choice in the matter.

    Ya turn around and walk the other way... plain and simple.

    If I were to stick around, it would get really ugly, really fast.

    Well, that's one way to look at it, I suppose. Not what I had in mind. I wonder if anyone else wants to jump in here?

    While in the military a neighbors wife verbally assaulted my wife and they came to blows. I was legally unable to do anything. The way it works is no matter the provocation laying hands on some one else dependent gets you a quick ticket out of the military.

    Of course my wife was furious with me. The MP's even explained it to her and she stayed mad for a couple weeks.

    Not sure as a civilian, but I suspect I would verbally respond and see where it escalated from there.

    I have to disagree with Lumpy. The kick to the balls, while causing a great deal of pain, will likely result in charges.
    Years back, I had a similar experience. A drunk was harassing my date while we were out dancing. He was on his way back, coming from behind me. I turned slightly so I could catch him with my peripheral vision and timing it perfectly, I swung my elbow back and caught him on the bridge of the nose. He went out like a light and I caught him as he went down. She and I walked/dragged him to the door and told the bouncer that he had over done it with the tequila. We sat him down under a tree and went back inside.
    I don't think he ever knew what happened.

    Since I am in a same sex marriage any comments made are usually directed toward both of us. Being 5 foot tall and 100 pounds there would be little to do beside ignore whomever said it and just consider the source and laugh between us.
