Wait for my SO to punch his lights out.

That thing has never happened to me, but strangers have been rude af towards me and a partner before. Like one time a drunk guy outside a show said, "I don't know which of you dudes is uglier" (while his buddies validated him sniggering) to me and my wife. We were trying to get out of the building, and we were in this cluster of people so we were just kept moving. Not much else to do imo, engaging with those people prolongs the interactions and makes it stick in your head longer. If someone is looking to start shit with queer people I'm not going to oblige them. Same deal here, I'd likely just ignore them.

My fist instinct would probably be to tell them to get the f out of my sight, and maybe call them a smelly ox. But in reality, I’m not sure how I’d react. I’d definitely be pissed though.

"I am doing better, this is a solid upgrade from your mother"

Yes, I agree that you TOO could do better… at being a decent human being.

This has happens to me loads of time. I just kiss him or he kisses me and we walk of into the sunshine.

That happened to me in Italy. A man sitting at the next table leaned forward to my girlfriend and said to her: Let her sit here alone and come with me, I show you Florence since you deserve much better! And I am better! - We left.

It's happened, the dude said she was 'slumming it', she grabbed me by the waist and I kissed her and smiled at nodded at him and he walked off
