Perhaps she was emotional and this was just the "straw that broke the camels back." Maybe She's been holding some serious anger issues inside for a long time.. like you always leave the toilet seat up and your clothes never make it into the hamper and you're just not the man she thought she married.. so Like any rational women upset and miserable with her life she takes it on you when you least suspect it.. you know like over a cheap bottle of wine.. ;-)

yeah... get a $100 bottle of wine for her to save. And I'm sure the argument probably escalated bc u were being a dick like "so fuckin what its a stupid bottle of cheap wine" so make sure to apologize.

I'm a woman, so I'm going against the grain here because I guess I'm supposed to stick up for my gender, but I'd tell her to stay at her parents for a while and see if her mother can read her a bedtime story. She acted like a child over a $7 bottle of wine and deserves to now be treated like one.

Just say to her, "And I was saving this one hundred dollar wine bottle for the next time you acted like a child. Perfect timing considering I just bought it yesterday". She might start crying hysterically if you say that, or she might grow up. Take the risk.

She may have overreacted, yes, but not all women overreact, just like not every man is going to be collected and laid back. There will always be extremes, but your statement is a poor assumption.

overreacted indeed, but the price tag doesent mean anything. maybe it was actually really important to her, and the guy didn't care because it was so cheap. he doesent listen to her initial pleas, so a full-blown argument begins.

She may have overreacted, but he seems to be willing to risk his marriage on a $7 bottle of wine. Rather than be pridefull, he should have figured out how to make it up to her.

What if that 7 dollar wine was from somewhere special to her? What if it was from the first place they went on a date? Or the store her grandma used to love? You never know. I have cheap stuff that have sentimental value. Don't assume.

Reply

That's plausible, but how do we know the husband knew how special it was to her? He could have opened it thinking it was just a cheap bottle of wine. There's too little information, so only assumptions can be made.

Or maybe Op is an alcoholic and drinks everything in the house. Maybe the argument was never about $7 at all. Maybe the $7 wine issue is the red herring Op used to maintain his denial?? Why do we always assume the Op is right when it doesn't make sense?

Water is not expensive. The only cost involved is a bucket. And do what I do and pop to your neighbours front gardens and fill said bucket up with their water. Repeat daily.

I agree, if she's not a completely psycho, there must be an underlying reason for the outburst. my guess is that she feels you don't listen to her. did she tell u beforehand that she didn't want u to drink the wine?

Reply

Yeah, The husband is a douche for fighting over a $7 bottle of wine... and blaming his wife for fighting over a $7 bottle of wine... and failing to see the irony.

Reply

well if that is the case, she should have spoken about about each issue when they arose. not holding it all in and letting it build up, causing her to go off like a crazy woman upset over a $7 bottle of wine.

16- I am in much agreement with you on this one. It probably was just the final straw in a long line of douchebaggery things you have been, intentionally or otherwise, doing throughout your marriage. there is no way the fight was JUST about that, at least to her. figure out what else you did to truly piss her off. :

Reply

oh I understand now. her husband is a douche, and over the years has driven her to the drink. resulting in her alcoholism which is why she over reacted about the cheap wine which was saved for a "special occasion". ok, it makes sense now :p

Reply

As much as I agree that this probably wasn't about the wine at all, I don't think it's necessarily all the man's fault. I despise the games people play in relationships, this example being a case of not-fighting-the-battle-at-hand. This relationship obviously has huge communication issues and is in dire need of a hypothetical kick in the ass or counseling.

Reply

Totally agree with the squirrel on this one, except for maybe the counseling bit. If they can get their heads together and put the emotions aside, they can probably figure out that more is in play here and running away to Mommy and Daddy isn't going to help at all. Of course, lots of people do need counseling to get even that far, but it's not necessarily imperitive. I'm not anti-counseling at all; Mr. D and I have found it helpful in the past. But this could just be one of those "learning how to be married and how to fight healthily" things.
