Me and my wife were just talking about a situation similar to this. I asked her if she thought she could ever kill someone and she said she didn't think so. When asked what she would do if one of our kids lives were at stake, she said she would have to be put in that situation. I sould definately let him have it. My kids are off limits, no question. Like you said, there's a line you don't cross and thats one of those lines. I take that jail time like a man for my kids. That's one avenue you don't want to travel down because it will surely be you last ride.

Family is everything. I went pretty far defending my cousin when he got attacked by an @$$hole who was drunk enough to mistake him for someone else. I almost got arrested but the cop determined that the guy was going to keep beating on my cousin even though he was unconscious if I hadn't stepped in. Both he & my cousin went to the hospital. My cousin was examined & released with a mild concussion. The other guy had a longer stay in the hospital with a jail sentence awaiting him for assault & battery & public drunkenness. I love it when a plan comes together.

Had it been my wife or one of my kids I really don't know if I could have stopped in time.

I know I couldn't have stopped. Wives are not defenseless men should not hit women for any reason. It's unnecessary. I dont hit my wife so I'm not going to let another man hit her.
