So, despite whatever is going on in their marriage that I’m not privy to, she deserved getting spit in the face?
I don't know about "deserved".
When two people interact, they have their own way of communicating.
One husband might put her out of the house, another file for divorce, yet another might just smile at her and say "Yes, honey, don't do what I say, do
whatever you like. I'll still love you no matter what you do. Now get me some coffee."
She provoked it to instigate something. Gotcha!
Don't be blind. She obviously knew he would react negatively to her actions. I'll bet this isn't the first time.
I will not stay out of it bc if she told me, she wanted me to be involved on some level.
That's ok. You get involved, that ruins their marriage. Maybe that would be for the best. She probably should be a single gal, anyway, doing her own
thing, not having to consider the other partner's feelings, just her own. That's what it looks like from here.
If she doesn’t want me to do anything, she will tell me to butt the hell out.
Maybe she want's out, needs an excuse, and is goading you to get involved to rend the marriage apart, so she can blame you and him for the mess she
caused, and feel psychologically distant from the events.
Women know how to get one man to do their dirty work, when dealing with other men.
It's all manipulation.
Women beat men at manipulation every time. All men have is "anger". But, women use their "weakness" to their advantage, to set one man's anger onto
another angry man, and stay clear of the blows.
You're a guy, that's your destiny.
