What is it with modern American society where we think we need to interject ourselves into other's problem and 'fix them?' It's an F-in disaster... look at our foreign policy.
However, if you decide to over rule prudence and confront someone, you need to confront the wife. She needs to fix the problem she created.
On a sidenote, if she is hot and in her early/mid 30s, feel free to send her my way.
