This is a question Crappy relationships

"Recently," Broken Arrow tells us, "The missus informed me that her brother was moving with us." What has your partner done that's convinced you the magic's gone? "Breathe" is not an answer.

Enough of dickhead men getting away with it
I was enjoying a lovely BBQ with my Mum during the Summer just past, when I heard a couple, shouting and screaming and crying, coming down the alleyway by my front garden. I immediately bolted up right, fight or flight I suppose, but from a young age I had very strong views on what should happen to guys that abuse women. Mother dear noticed and warned me not to get involved (which I thought strange at the time), but a friend of mine was due to arrive any minute so I bolted round the corner to find a guy dragging his girlfriend my the arm, shouting abuse at her, demanding she get "back in the fucking house the fucking slag." All that.

Just like a previous poster, I somehow found myself in this guys face telling him what I think of him (not much, would you believe), but he easily had 3 inches height on me (now, I'm 6'1, but this guy was big. Rugby big). The moment he let go of the girl she sprinted, crying, for his family's house. My mate appeared, and dickhead-man backed down like a coward and stormed off in a huge rage.

A few hours later, the guys Dad and brother knock on the door, apologising profusely. They had to call the police on him at the end, their own son and brother, I can't imagine the shame he brought on them.

Moral of this story- if you have the opportunity to intervene, use your sound judgement, and then do it anyway. Whether the girl/woman is crying aloud or not, she might be breaking inside. The dickhead in this story could easily have broken my face in, but it's the control they get off on, he wasn't looking for a real fight.

What if you intervene, get knocked to the ground and wind up with five BNP apologists kicking you in the head and stamping on your face?
I don't think you've thought this through.

Massive Honda Accord Style Justice
I hope you had two wanks that night ya hero!

That he didn't king hit you might also suggest he wasn't as irrational as you make out.

What if she was one of the cheating, lying, attacking cunts of women mentioned over the preceding 7 pages?

They didn't really knock on your door later did they? You just wished they had.

Have you had such a closeted existence that nothing interesting has ever happened to you?
That might well explain your inability to accept that events might have occurred to others.

I don't doubt that she was one of those women, but there's no reason to get all O.J. Simpson about it.

Not always a good idea
I was walking home (admittedley thru Hull town centre!) and a rather large bloke was dragging/shouting at "his" woman.
I stepped in his way and was about to say something but before I could act, he came for me. I had to make a hasty retreat. To make it worse, the woman was encouraging him shouting "f*cking get him Gary!"

Gratitude eh?

Where do you go if you get killed *after* going to Hull?
