Non Violent - Am I? Can I?

A question from my last post

However the question is "Would you be non violent and if so to what degree?"

I am a firm beleiver in non violence, but then it makes me think that do I believe only because I have not been put in a tough spot.

Would I have had the courage to stand in front of the brutal Lathi Charge of the British, in that era? Would you?
If someone comes to my house and slaps me would I be non violent?
If someone comes to my house and rapes someone I love would I be non violent?

The Mahatma said that if someone slapped you in one cheek, give him the other cheek.

So what is the Cheek a metaphor for? Gandhiji please explain......
