*I'll Give You a Topic

If your spouse/significant other killed somone, would you turn him/her in?

I would.

If it was self-defense, I'd then work to exonerate them as such.

If it was an accident, I'd want them exonerated.

If it was murder, I couldn't live with them anymore anyway.

Depends. Who'd she kill?

I've got at least one ex out there who's actively trying to kill people.

Ooh, as I reread that it sounds pretty bad. The ex I refer to is in the Army.

That's what the "depends" is on. If my Lovely Wife wacked somebody who was trying to have a go at one of the boys I'd have no problem with it, nor would I turn her in.

Hmmm. Depends on which ex. One of them, I'd be happy to turn in for things there's only a remote possibility she was involved in.

I would gladly turn in either one of my ex's. I would not turn in my current companion, however. I guess it depends on which list I currently have them on.

No, because I'm probably the one she killed, and I probably deserved it.

It wouldn't happen, because usually Mrs M asks me to do the killing, as in "Oh my God, Simon kill that cockcroach now!" And I've no doubt she'd turn me in. Then she'd get the bed to herself.

I'd have to check my list. If the killee was on it, I'd just take her out to dinner. And never fall asleep first ever again.

By 'someone' do you mean Michael Moore? My husband is Swedish. It's not in his DNA to kill. Scratch that. He killed a squirrel once, but he cooked it and ate it, so it's OK.
