Negative. Considering he even confessed he wasn't mad at me, because I didn't opt to steal from him. He only got mad at me after the fact, and at that point, he could go suck an egg.
Even on the save where I did take it, I didn't feel for him. I kind of thought he sucked. His group was a lot smaller, and it was implied he had weaponry (He took his son hunting). We made due with a much larger group. If he played his cards right, he could have made it, with or without his wife. But, then again, that wouldn't have made for a very good plot. :P
