Why did you have to stand silent? Why didn't you speak up?
Ugh yeah.. Dude, even if she's wrong - she's right. In fact, it doesn't matter how wrong she is, you'll never be right as long as she's upset. If momma's not happy, nobody is happy. "The only B word you should call women is beautiful. Bitches love being called beautiful...". - Some guy who's smarter than me
and that is why she acts like this in public....because, judging by these comments, she knows she can get away with it. It shouldn't matter if it's a wife or a husband, that's no excuse to just stand by and let them act out in public. If a man had done it, people would probably be calling him out on his behavior, so treat a woman no different. If she's so irrational that she can't deal with that, well then that's her fault. Being married shouldn't mean you have to kiss someone's ass/put up with their bad behavior in public.
OP calling his wife out on her bad behavior right then and there would just agitate the situation more. While public shaming might serve as a potent deterrent, I doubt that the repercussions of further provoking his wife would be worth it. I agree that he should express his dismay to her later when she's calmed down and in private, but that does nothing to quell OP's humiliation while his wife's bad behavior is in progress.
What is the deal with everyone saying 'the woman is always right'?? That's BS. I used to freak out at people at the grocery store because some people are slow and get in the way. My husband got so embarrassed that he told me that if I couldn't calm down, he'd never go to the grocery store with me again. It straightened me out. Well, that and medication... Because I also found out that I suffer from PMDD, hence the outbursts. FYL, OP, but if you don't confront your partner about the behavior, it will continue. Be nice about it, but definitely talk to her about it. Good luck, OP.

women these days are uppity brats. i wouldnt let her out in public until she can stop embarrassing you...better yet i wouldnt have married someone so nasty to complete strangers. i can imagine how she must treat ppl she knows personally.
Yes let's act like women are children, simply because they have a bad day. And also base our marriages on whether or not said women have bad days. Because that's exactly how the world should be because PMS doesn't exist. Seriously though people have bad days, add expected. Don't judge so harshly.
"women these days are uppity brats"? you don't sound like a closet misogynist at all! please. spare us the stale, overused sexist statements. only people who hate women use belittling, infantilizing terms like "uppity" and "brats", especially referring to women as a whole. I patiently await the butthurt male downvotes.
So what you're practically saying Harley is that you don't have pms? Or better yet have a bad day or something going wrong in your life? Please. Basing marriage off of one instance is moronic. Get over it - people have bad days and it could possibly be op's fault. Shit happens
- feminist, you aren't, you are a civil rights activist and have my support. Lets end this feminism crap, it's sexist itself, support women's right, not the belittle meant of everyone else to try and achieve that goal, it's fool hearty and hypocritical. (Scrap gem from the end of previous post. Went to delete and accidentally sent it in a brain fart)
99- I agree with you. I'm fully supportive of equality between all people, but the feminism camp has used sexism to fight sexism. While I understand what they are trying to achieve, they've gone about it in the worst way possible. Making men in general the enemy instead of targeting sexist doctrine.
