    Re: I need some help for my football hating wife



    My wife isn't a football fan either but she respects my feelings for it. I in return am not a fan of Broadway which she like to go to with her mom and sisters. You don't have to like the same things but there should be an understanding and support for what's important to the other person.

    I thinking pointing out that publicly putting down her husband in a very immature passive aggressive way would probably do it...

    Either that or just ignore and buy season tickets and put one in a ring box for Valentine's Day and ask her to go to opening day with you. Like that movie Fever pitch...

    Some say that bigamy is a man having too many wives. For OP, that's also the definition of monogamy.

    That is the rational way to approach this. Trying to determine the nature and direction of a relationship from a single facebook post and sketchy information is a fools errand. However, I'm going to play the fool.

    The situation as explained is one person in the relationship trying to change the other more to their liking. It seems clear that the OP loves football and is being told by their spouse that what they like is dumb and forbids him from enjoying what he loves. That by itself is unreasonable in a relationship. When he felt strongly enough that he went against his wife's wishes she publicly flogged him to their friends for not obeying her demands. That is disrespectful and demeaning. Based on this microcosm of the relationship if the rest of the relationship is like this then he should run far and fast.

    That's all I got, assuming your goal is to patch things up. Give her a Ravens Super Bowl Champs something or other for Valentines Day (but for chrissakes make it a cheapie!).

    And she gets absolutely no sex from you until a full apology or next season, whichever comes first.

    Be strong, man - that's why they invented porn!

    If it's an isolated incident let it go. If it's chronic behavior to disrespect you, fix it.

    Wife: So apparently I am married to one of the 100,000 dumb a$$' in Baltimore. Super proud moment!
    Friend 1: Was it for yesterday?
    Wife: Yes! I. AM. LIVID!!!
    Friend 1: I thought he gave up trying to get downtown? did he manage to get to baltimore?
    Friend 2: Why are you mad?
    Wife: Because he is a total embarrassment to society. Sat there listening to me talk about the trash that went downtown to skirt responsibility and teach their kids that stupid SH!T is more important than real life!
    Friend 3: <---trash ! It was an amazing family moment for us though and that is priceless! Addy's teacher told me to do it when I discussed it with her. She took her kids to the 1983 O's world series championship parade and her grown kids still remember that day with her. Guess I can say, the teacher talked me into it!
    Friend 1: <---trash, too! (Who was even saving a seat for your dear husband . With Ron arriving that morning from NO, we too decided it would be a special moment to have together as a family, one that doesn't come around often. Personally, I didn't think it was nearly as bad as a school year trip to Disney, in which the kids missed multiple days of school to go to a place that is open 365 days a year. That was a lot of responsibility skirted, just to see a big mouse But, we rolled with it, and cherished the time together. Life is short, and sometimes it's the unique experiences that have the greatest impact as you grow older. I don't regret it.
    Wife: Justify it as you wish but how would you have felt if Adelyn was having a serious asthma attack, gasping for breath and you called 911 and it took an hour for an ambulance because half if the drivers were at the stadium? My husband is an ass!
    Ignore her and go buy a $30,000 boat so you have something for you and your daughter to share without mom. Nothing happened at the parade and all is well with your daughter, right. Also, tell her that when the Ravens repeat next year, you're going to do it again. That will piss her off. Have fun with the boat!

    agreed, I feel bad for thsi dude. Rough life ahead with this beotch. I can understand a woman not liking football... but public disrespect like this? She's probably fucking the neighbor.

    No offense, but she sounds like a nasty bitch. Divorce.

    In all seriousness, some others have given good advice. She, at minimum, needs a serious attitude adjustment. She doesn't have to like or understand football or even other things that you care about, but ridiculing you publicly about them is simply unacceptable. That's gotta change or else things are only going to go more downhill. Good luck.
