Agreed, possesion is 9/10ths of the law. Besides, I don't mind watching a purse....doesn't bother me, done it enough to learn to have fun with it.

Sure it'* hers, but it'* an un written rule about watching the purse.

Believe it or not, when people get married, they form a UNION and it'* implied that they would watch out for each other, strive to protect THEIR property, etc.

But this type of philosophy isn't the prevalent one anymore... today'* world is all about "me, me, me" and individualism. And we wonder why the divorce rate is so high Clearly there are lots of people out there who don't understand what marriage is, or they have redefined what it is for their convenience.

Short answer ==> Yes, he is responsible

I'm a little 'torn' though I definitely agree he should have watched it, especially since they are married and her purse is essentially his. But maybe he was not paying attention since he was on the phone, and maybe she assumed he would watch it though she knew he was on the phone and probably wasn't giving his undivided attention to her. If he wasn't on the phone I bet he would have been more aware that her purse was left alone and wouldn't have lost sight of it (or maybe not, I don't really know)

If she trusted him to watch it and he HAS watched it before, then it was an honest simple mistake. She wouldn't really have to ask if he always watches it.

BUT - if she knew she couldn't trust him, then she should carry her own purse, or ask, since it is first and foremost her purse, and she should be more careful. I don't think people should leave valuables around and assume someone else will take responsibility. That'* NOT to say he should have left it just because she didn't ask him to watch it. He should have watched it, but all I am saying is that maybe she should also be more careful herself.

I would always watch a purse regardless. It doesn't bother me either. Some drunk idiot at a bar pulled a chair out from under me, sending my g/f'* (ex'*) purse flying open on the floor (it was on the chair behind me). The first thing I did was pick up the purse and all the stuff that flew out of it. But that'* just how I am.

Bill thats a hard one not being there. But I'll tell ya , my area is so overrun with crack and meth addicts ya cant leave anything loose anymore. I live 25 miles from anything and still lock down everything. The shop I'm having work done just lost a digicamcorder left on counter. It sat there forever. Didnt vote.Sounds like a 50-50 blame
