    Not from my observations.
    Perspectives will vary, won't they?

    You won't ever get any thanks for it, and the natives will never see the moral side of your chivalrous act.

    Yep I was one of them. Due to the fact children were involved in the physical violence being dished out to their mother.
    I'm not going to rewrite my story as I posted it before on a similar thread. But to anyone who can stand by and see a child watch her mother being hacked at with a machete isn't right in the head. I'm not Thai. I don't stand and watch and take pictures.
    ...but you have to be prepared to go all the way, that's the scenario you are contemplating. You can't just do a little boy intervention; it has to be a big hairy man intervention... and that is the heaviest of heavy shit.

    I have seen Thai men kick and punch their women before in public places and it always sickens me. They just dont care who sees them and its also shocking the way passing Thais just nonchalantly wander past as if its not happening.
    The question is would you intervene?
    I have never seen a Thai beating up their partner. I have seen women getting beaten by their partners several times in Britain, always in North-Eastern England or Scotland. I have always called the police. I have never intervened. I have intervened when I've seen people beating children, that was never a conscious decision, those times have been the only times in my life when Ive completely lost control.
    don't you know there ain't no devil, there's just god when he's drunk

    She might have deserved it.
    What do you tell a woman with two black eyes?
    Nothing you have told her twice already.

    Whilst I agree with every word you say it's hard to believe you wouldn't have got involved on the night I got involved. I couldn't stand there and watch a man kill his wife whilst their 2 children watched also. In fact they weren't watching, they were trying to stop him without success.
    And did I get any thanks afterwards? No. 8-9 years later none of the family have spoken to me or my wife. Would I do it again? Until it happens one cannot be sure, but I think I would as long it's not my next door neighbours.

    Why would you save the mother's life and then pick a fight with her kids? Very strange behaviour.

    I don't even know whether a drumroll emoji exists here. But I doubt that would be the code for it in any case

    Damn it Bob. You're ruining a perfectly good Thai bashing exercise posting this nonsense. It's common knowlege the enlightened among us are superior to the savages who inhabit Thailand.

    No way would a proper Brit ever beat his wife. You were either hallucinating when you saw such a thing or you saw one of those low life darkie immigrant types beating their wife.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Nor I, as it's extremely rare.

    A notion largely born of myth.

    yeah, but we know that violence works differently in the east from in the west... in the west it's about humiliation; in the east it tends to be more of a life and death scenario.

    Not that horrible, locally brewed, tosh from somewhere like Waawee Coffee is it?

    Horrible stuff, Thais don't know how to make coffee (or anything else)!
