Sometimes couples aruge out loud in public.

It is more common for couples to not argue out loud in public but it happens, and just because it does don't mean they don't love each other. Sometimes couples have differences and they get a bit loud while in public and others tend to interpret it as a bad relationship or that these two might kill each other. In fact it was me and my wife in a Target one day while I was saying, "Can we hurry up. I am tired and I want to get back home and have something to eat." But a stranger walked by and while I was looking at stuff on another aisle, he told her, "That man is the type who will kill you one day. Take my word for it." When my wife told me this I was so shook up about it that I went home feeling so terrible I worried she might feel the same way that man did. She reassured me that she knew I was just hungry and sometimes I talk too loud in public. She knows I love her and would never hurt her. But that man's mind was made up and he thought I was a killer. Some kind of wife beater. It still haunts me to this day when I think about it. People are so quick to judge and this happens all the time and especially with life and death situations between civilians and cops.

That doesn't even rise to the level of anger. I would call that remark grouchy. Everyone gets grouchy.

Yep. That I was. I sometimes get that way when I am tired and hungry.

@lookatdesktop I don't mind arguing couples. They may disturb my thoughts but that is their problem. What I cannot stand is seeing parents screaming at their children and even hitting them.

@RasmaSandra I saw a young woman yanking on her little boy's arm and the door to the library entrance swung and hit him. I was furious. I said nothing, however. I remained at the door until she walked down the parking lot and off the campus. A few months later I encountered her again at the library and offered to hold the door for her and she made a face and refused to enter until I walked away. She was probably abused as a child and takes it all out on the rest of the world.

You were just hungry and tired and you told it to your loving wife.Who else you'd say it?

That;s all there is to say really. That man just had to add his 2 cents.

People love to judge others. That was ridiculous of him to approach your wife and say that to her. She must have been so embarrassed too because was saying she was with an abusive man. Everybody get cranky and may raise their voice it doesn't make them abusive. I find everybody just enjoys getting in everybody else's business these days.

This man was quick to judge. It can be easy sometimes. But we shouldn't judge, especially when we don't have all the facts.

it's sometimes a matter of culture, too. When we were in Barbados, people kept openly disapproving of my husband because he walked on ahead of me. it doesn't bother me - it's just that he walks more quickly!

There are social class differences here as well.

That man was judging you when he did not even know you. Actually that was rude of him. I have had that happen in public to.

People are so quick to judge others. Sometimes I wish I had a chance to be a fly on the other man's wall.
