    Yeah well "agree completely" isn't what you said in a couple of other threads. You made it very clear you weren't interested in risking your life for anyone else, wife child mother brother... apparently if the perp has a gun, you're Vichy French.

    There is a middle ground in which I mostly agree with you, but not entirely. It would depend upon abilities, situation and relationships.

    Where have I ever said that? Go back and read my posts. I think that if society is going to put that expectation on men, it should also be placed on women as well.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    I don't anyone should risk their life in a helpless situation, man or woman.

    What a horrible story. Horrible. I hope they're rotting in hell.

    The only helpless situation is the one you might choose in which not to participate...

    He is trying to find someone to tell him he is justified in running away and leaving his girlfriend/future wife to her fate.
    Can you please post where I said I would run away if my wife or girlfriend were being confronted by an assailant. What I said was that I would not get myself killed to save my wife and I would not expect her to get herself killed trying to save me. I love my wife enough to say that if I were in that kind of situation and the gun were pointed at my head, I would not want her to jump in front of it to save me.

    There is no one or good answer to the question as posed. Highly dependent upon the details of the situation and the people involved. No determination can be made from the slim outline presented.
