Anger (and other similar words) would describe the feeling more accurately. Also the man would probably be very offended that you talked negatively about his family. Other words for anger: Fury, rage, wrath Other words for feeling offended: Upset, insulted

Jealous would apply if he were flirting with your wife, not necessarily talking negatively to her. You might become protective of your wife, sister or daughter in the situation you described.

Samad: In addition to Susan's excellent answer, I propose that you are looking for some descriptive terminology. I think you want to employ language such as the following: "I was offended by the person's disrespectful remarks to my family." "I took exception to the person's profane and uncivil manner when they spoke to my family." "I was outraged by the discourteous and impolite behavior of this person." Things like that may be of some help to you.
