How a gentleman walks with a lady?

Traditionally, when a gentleman and a lady walk together down a street, the gentleman walks on the outside or curb side of the sidewalk. When a couple is walking somewhere other than on a sidewalk, the gentleman always walks on the lady's left side.

Why does the girl walk on the right side?

History says this rule of the lady walking on the right side came about in the Middle Ages when knights wore their swords on the left side of their bodies which thus allowed their right arm and hand available for a quick response to protect his lady and himself as well, of course, from an evil foe or other danger.
