    He also said that if they would have had children, they wouldn't have had the money for him to take a semester without pay. He said he usually said something like, "Well my wife needs me all the same and if we would have had children, we wouldn't be able to afford my leave of absence."
    What a completely generous and tactful response to such ridiculous badgering. My gut reaction to something like that would be "Fuck you."

    I think he was immensely helped by his professional training and experience. A "fuck you, asshole" response totally isn't unwarranted.

    I took this class in the late 90s and his wife's cancer was some 5 to 10 years earlier. So you are looking at the early 90s at the latest that this happened. I wonder if he would get the some response today.
