    That was very confusing!
    If a male friend of mine abused his female significant other, the act of me putting him in the hospital would probably make it hard to be friends.:scowl:

    Yeah, the question is terrible.

    I assume you mean "If your best friend abused his/her spouse would it end your friendship?"

    Yes.

  7. Would depend on how many times you hit them........

    Dude, weird thread. Didn't you know automatic thread creators sometimes stuff up the grammar?

    What constitutes abuse? If it were physical abuse no. Some yelling from time to time, sure. However, most guys I know are on the receiving end. :meh:

    I'd tell him that I was going to break his neck and then see how afraid he was!

    ;)
     
  11. Hell yeah! We'd show him a gruesome picture of where he was going to retire!

    The real question is: if you abused your best friend's significant other, would it end your friendship?

    I would probably try to do what I could to help the situation, rather than attacking the guy. If he absolutely refused to stop beating her... hmmm... oh dear, I don't know.

    No, it would not. It would definitely put a strain on it though.

    I don't have friends whose character would allow them to abuse or victimize others. I have no tolerence for that type of person.
     
  20. Agreed. I wouldn't instantly end the relationship, but the continuation of abuse after it was brought to light would certainly end it.
