How would you feel about your SO/DH " defending your honor" in public. Is it OK to you?

I expect him to defend my honour just as seriously as I would defend his. He should be willing to take a bullet for me. BUT, that doesn't mean i want him beating the crap out of a guy for using an F bomb or calling me names...Everything should be reasonable given whatever the circumstance if that makes sense.

Some guy comes on to me (which let me tell ya, will never happen), then I expect him to intervene. I expect and moreover TRUST that my DH will protect me if necessary.

I would expect him to protect me in moments of danger. As for just plain ol' defending my honor (like if we're in public and someone hits on me, or says something disparaging), I would expect him to stand up for me using only his words in a relatively soft "inside voice." I would not ever want him to get into a fight to defend me for any reason (other than that I was in physical danger).

A couple of times a friend of his has been inappropriate right in front of DH (like once he was poking me in the ribs, which just seems a little too invasive) and DH didn't do anything, so I guess in his mind, it's my honor and I have to defend it myself. :-/

If someone was talking badly about me I'd ignore or leave. Sticks and stones

If someone assaulted me I'd probably hope DH would stop me before I inflicted too much damage onto the person.
I can take care of myself but If I couldnt, I would know DH would defend me if I were in physical danger. and as far as people speaking badly of me, I imagine he would have very serious conversation with that person if the situation called for it but mostly we both agree to just walk away.
I would never get violent with someone over words-I would only defend myself and family if we were in danger of physical harm.

Not okay, I am a big girl and I can defend my own **** honour. I don't need someone else to do it for me.

He would only defend me if someone was physically coming after me but I would expect him to defend me whether by words or deeds honestly.

If someone is coming after me he best knock them out while I dial 911. If someone is downing me with nasty words and lies then I expect him to call them out on it. Id be doing the same thing but he can jump in too.

My DH probably wouldn't do much cause I would have already defended myself lol! I would expect him to defend me tho both physical and verbal depending on what the circumstance calls for. That is what marriage is for having each others back.

I can hardly imagine being in a situation that would require this. I think I'd have it covered on my own and leave the situation before it would get to needing dh.

I normally can hold my own mud, but he would intervene if necessary. Maybe its just my stubborn ways but I like to fight my own battles...ha ha....
