Re: Warren Zevon: Wife Beater
Wouldn't you call 911, or look for help if she was jeopardizing your and/or your child's safety? And by "in such a manner", do you mean "No I don't agree with what you said you idiot" or if she has a weapon in her hand?
There really is no firm definition, I would know if the time were right. This would be something more along the lines of a mental break as opposed to a difference of opinions. 911 is useless when immediate danger is present.
