    Re: I need some help for my football hating wife



    My wife doesn't like football. But she also appreciates that people are passionate about it and respects that.

    We're assuming here, but it sounds like the wife no only doesn't follow football, but also doesn't understand why ANYONE would care about it.

    Dump her!

    Going to Ravens games should be a major aspect of your marriage. Instead, she sounds like a spoiled brat & prima donna out of the "me-first" generation.

    My wife: has a first cousin who played for the Bengals in their second Super Bowl, two other cousins who played DI football, four uncles who are coaches and a husband who played college ball.

    The first time I said I loved her was during a Ravens game. I screamed at the TV, "Why don't you run a screen pass?!" She calmly looks at me and says, "Because your offensive linemen aren't athletic enough to get out in front of the running-back."
    That had me misty eyes you lucky bastard

    Far as what to say. If you must say anything at all in response to such a childish public temper tantrum I would say:
    "Sure your right. Nothing screams maturity like airing out family issues on facebook" or if your feeling brave
    "I guess my wife is one of the MILLIONS of dumbasses who insist on sharing their families private issues with the world" or
    Post a picture of Mel Gibson at the end of Braveheart and just put the caption FREEDOM!!!! or
    Post a picture from the Wizzard of Oz of the Wicked Witch of the West crushed by the house. If you got time on your hand touch up the pic in photoshop wiht a Ravens flair lol and leave it at that

    If she can't respect a man's love and passion for football, I suggest getting a new wife. Seriously. She sounds degrading and annoying as hell.

    Re: I need some help for my football hating wife

    My advice is get a good divorce lawyer. Seriously she's acting like a child.

    I'm glad my GF loves football and the Ravens as much as I do. I got tickets to the Colts game for her bday. Win-Win for me. lol

    Yes, I think it's time to move on. She sounds like she sucks and even her friends don't like her.

    Make sure you extracate any Ravens memorabilia, children and anything else you care about before telling her though. And probably best to not do it on Facebook. Tweeting is faster.

    The problem is not that she doesn't like football or that she was angry at you. The problem is that she displayed a lack of understanding of the boundaries of the marriage relationship. Marriage is based on trust and intimacy; trashing you publicly and harping on it with her "friends" destroys both. Boundaries must be respected.

    Put some time and effort into learning "how to fight fair" (here is a good article) and remember that your marriage comes first--before everything else, including your fandom and your friends. This is the person you promised you would be with all the days of your life. Fix it now. There are lots of good resources for marriage help on the internet, but choose carefully.

    Here is what I would post, "since you disrespect your HUSBAND in the public, and don't respect me or my passion.... I have gotten you a valentines day present. Customized just for you. Divorce papers. "

    Re: I need some help for my football hating wife

    I wasted 10 years of my prime on someone like that. Multiple separations, constant arguing. My second wife and I have been married for 21 years. We both love Football and Baseball and we don't trash each other, especially in public. Don't waste your life on someone who cares that little about you.

    Re: I need some help for my football hating wife

    For those of you who are advocating divorce...marriage is a commitment you make for, presumably, life. A lifelong commitment for better or for worse. I believe in couples doing everything in their power to work through their issues which every married couple has from time to time. I'm not saying every marriage is a match made in heaven but it is a mutual promise made and every care must be taken to preserve it. Sometimes divorce is necessary but it should be an absolute last resort. Divorce affects more than just the married couple...it affects the children, friends and the entire families on both sides. I'm sure some of you are throwing it out there in a light-hearted, sarcastic way or at least I hope you are. Maybe the wife doesn't see or understand how she sounds or comes across to others. Maybe she doesn't realize those civil and marital boundaries. Yes, she sounds childish and immature in her public rantings but we should at least give her the benefit of the doubt instead of telling the OP to divorce her.

    Are you sure you're 'taking care' of her? Cuz that usually fixes everything
