[quote=uofl19]I think I did something wrong. I was caught by my wife watching Desperate Housewives!! She thinks I was watching it because of the women. I told her I was flipping through when I stopped on a very corny scene. She doesn’t buy it. She said why would a guy watch desperate housewives?? She is Furious!! I feel like she is going overboard. She is VERY INSECURE about her appearance and I can understand that aspect of it. However, she compares it to watching porn. Lusting over women and watching something as immoral as that. I will say my 73 yr old mother loves the show!!
I’m ready to take a beating on this!!!
Oh I think Karin is correct on this one.
I don’t know what you can do when someone is ruled by their own insecurities, causing them to become angry with you. I know that when I have been confronted by such things in the past I have had to learn to apologize for upsetting the person and then move on. I cannot make them feel better.
You might, just for curiousity sake, ask your wife (gently, and with sincerity - not with sarcasm) what she would like you to do to ‘make things right’ between you. Unless she says something really silly, like “jump off the roof during a snow storm in your underwear” I would listen and try to do what she asks. If it is something like, “Just admit you were watching those women” you might say, “If my telling you that I was watching the show because I think the women are beautiful will make you feel better, and allow us to move past this bump in the road, then I am willing to do so.”
Then I would ask her if she would be willing to pray the Rosary with you …
