You did the right thing.

I understand her concern for your health and welfare as a means to provide financially and emotionally for your family. You saw a friend getting the snot beat out of them and you reacted. Getting in fights isn't ideal; but she can't fault you for that. She also can't expect you to stay holed up in your home forever for fear of what the boogie man may bring.

You owe your wife 2 nights out (so she doesn't resent you for being the only one that gets to go out) and a massage. She is FAR more stressed out than you are.

Waking up every 3 hours was terrible - I feel for you two. Do you have a bedtime routine for your baby? Once we started this routine his bedtime became more normal and he slept longer and longer. Every night around 9pm we give our little guy a bath, put him in a sleeper, fed him, wait for him to doze off and put him in his crib. He is 3 months old and slept for 7.5 hours last night. Also do you have a feeding schedule? We never feed before 3 hours since the last feeding and we are shooting for 4 hours between feedings.

I know it may be a little late but if the waking up is colic related get Mylicon and Gripe Water ASAP. We had a colicky baby. Mylicon breaks up the gas bubbles making them easier to pass - and Gripe Water calms the stomach and eases gas (this stuff is amazing). The first time we gave our son Gripe Water he was wailing at the top of his lungs - within 20 seconds of administering he was sleeping.

Best of luck with everything! I can only imagine how stressful your life is right now.

Its all been said.

Shame on you for being in the situation, but you have to have you friends back in a confrontation (especially as serious as it sounds).

You did what you had to do, you got your friend out of a bad situation, but you never turn your back on an aggressor. Never.
Good job getting your friends back.

The wife isn't mad at you for helping your friend once you discovered his situation. She's mad at you for being in public with the type of person who found that type of situation.
I have made many friends over the years... years ago I made friends with some obnoxious loud party animals who find themselves in confrontations due to drinking and partying in public. They are all tough guys and drink too much. They let their emotions get the best of them after consuming too much alcohol.
I am not married, but I am attached, and I have no kids. But I find that 5 years after we first started hanging that I have mellowed out . . . while I love to hang with these guys at house gatherings, I do not like going out in public with them because they are trouble makers.

I can understand where your wife is coming from. She should be sympathetic to the situation to a certain extent. But then again... your buddy probably pissed of the wrong guy and derserved what he got.
But you did the right thing. SWMBO will be upset no matter what (IMO)

Sorry, I can't answer. I never got into the 'go get wasted at the bar' scene, because stuff like this happens.

My wife would probably be a little peeved at me, because I'm not a fighter.

That said, I would be hard pressed not to assist a friend in need, regardless of WTF happened.

How did you manage to get beaten up? How did he manage to get up? Oh, you tackled him. That was foolish, this isn't football. Does the bar you go to serve plastic bottles or something?

The way to do it is to break a glass bottle and stab him with it.
