I let her walk off into the night
So it was Friday night and my son and I are getting ready to go watch the local high school football game. I don't want to be rude so I ask my wife if she wants to join us. She has had a long day and is tired so she replies 'no you two go, I'll just stay here and have a couple of drinks'. So I give her the obligatory 'aw come on you will have fun' , she gets ready and the three of us are on our way. On the way there she picks a fight with me over something insignificant. I capitualate to her and the matter dies down. When we park and get out our son drops his cell phone and can't find it. He checks his pockets, looks around the back seat to no avail. She is getting upset with him and makes her usual diggs. He is a bit upset that he can't find the phone. I see the game has started and we are a block away so I say 'let's move on, we can find the phone later' and we start down the road to the stadium. Our son is a few steps ahead I am in the middle and she is behind. She starts yelling at our son about him "throwing a fit". I turn to her and reply 'he is fine, let's just go to the game' she replies 'this is all your fault, he is throwing a fit and you won't do anything'. I look back at her and say 'come on let's just get to the game' she retorts 'you are an a****** and I am not going. I am walking home' (we are about 2 miles from our house). So I say ' come on, just let it go' she comes back with ' you always chose his side' and walks off. I let her go and we go and enjoy the game. When we get home she is there and furious. She claims that I do not love her and that if I did I would not have let her walk home at night. In the midst of her rant she comments "no man will ever control me" (As if I even have that desire.) OK so what I feel is that I am wrong for asking her to go and that is my fault. I should have seen she was tired and insisted she stay home. What I won't take responsibilty for is her walking home at night. She is the one who made that decision and is the one who "won't be controlled by any man".
Guys, should I have manned up and chased after her?
Ladies, would you feel that your man does not love you if he does not chase you down?
