    Walk straight again

    Hello, I watched a TV series and couldn't understand one particular line, one woman says to another woman, while looking at her husband's picture "if he was my husband, I wouldn't have walked straight again ".
    What does it mean?

    She might be implying that he is so bad a person that she would have become a lesbian. It's hard to know without more context.

    I think it means that she would be having so much sex with him that she would be unable to walk normally.

    Re: Walk straight again

    I suppose it could also mean something like she'd be so ashamed that she'd walk around hunched over with her face hidden.

    Do you happen to have a clip of the show we could watch? That's going to be the only way be certain without more context.

    Re: Walk straight again

    In a very shallow way, rather a lot depends on whether it's a photo of a particularly attractive man or not.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    He was actually an attractive man. I think I understand now, what she meant. Thank you very much!
