Sunday Stroll: Which side should the woman be on while walking with a man?

by epi on May 30, 2014

Q: When a man and a woman are walking together, is there an appropriate side the woman should be on? (e.g. at the gentleman’s right)

 

 

A: On the street, a man traditionally walks on the curb side — a custom born of the idea that women needed to be shielded from the potential hazards posed by the passing horse-and-buggy parade.
