Do you ever get mad at your spouse for no real reason

Do you ever get mad at your spouse for no real reason

Do you ever get mad at your spouse for pissing off one of your family members, when your spouse did absolutely nothing wrong. My problem happened yesterday at my brother in-law's little league game. My wife and I were sitting with her mom and her boyfriend, when I made the comment that my brother in-law wasn't pitching the ball as hard as he normally does. My mother in-law took offense to this, and I don't know why. I practice with the kid for atleast 10 hours a week, because he wants to, not me wanting to make him some kind of star. He is 12 years old and almost 6' tall. He can throw at 65 mph all game long, and their is no one in his league that can really hit off him. During this game he was throwing like 45 mph. I said my comment because I was truly concerned. I was actaully wondering if he had hurt his arm, because their was to big of a difference. Well now I'm in the dog house. My wife yelled at me all the way home about this, and I don't know why. I rufused to appologize because I didn't say anything bad, and I didn't put down anyone, or yell at anything. I'm completely supportive of him. Why would they be mad at me for a comment like that.

I encourage my spouse to piss off my family. It's fun.

Um, it sounds like to me someone pissed in your MIL's wheaties and it probably has nothing to do with you at the end of the day. Unless of course, she just secretly doesn't like you. Then it doesn't matter what or how you say things.

When we first got married, she wasn't a big fan of me. I was borderline on being almost cocky, lived my life like their was no tomorrow, and didn't have a job. But as I grew as a man, I ended up being the only good father type figure for her son. The kid wants to be exactly like me. The kid even wants to go to West Point for college. How many kids want to go spend their first years as a young adult in a Service Academy. And I have given her daughter the life that she could only dream of. But your probably right, she is probably mad that I know more about her son than she does. But at the same time, I only do the things I do for her boy because he has been my little bud since he was like two, and I want to make sure that he doesn't end up like his father.

Sounds like they probably took it the wrong way. I wouldn't have normally thought anything about a comment like that. My partner and I take care of my nephews and one plays baseball, I couldn't see any of us (me or my fam.) getting angry at all for a comment like that. Especially since it was out of concern.

For me, if my mother got unhappy she didn't deal with it directly. She called me and badgered me and never faced it head on and jumped to conclusions. It would irritate me having to be chewed out for something I didn't do. I personally would not apologize for something like this unless things were resolved. Say I talked to MIL and told them what I meant and things settled down. I may just do a "Well I am sorry things were taken the wrong way. i did not mean it that way at all because I was concerned my BIL may have hurt his arm or have something going on effecting his game. I want to make sure he is ok."

At that point of all the irritation I will be sorry it was taken the wrong way because I would have a huge headache, lol.

Just let it roll. There are going to be bigger fish to fry later on, but I don't think what you did was wrong at all.

She: We make it a point to make sure we're on the same side, especially around other people. We back each other up and bring up any disagreements later on. It works really well now that we've got it more figured out.

He: There was a time or two where she was stressed about something else and got mad, but I make her tea and she relaxes after that.

She: Tea is the great reality checker for me.
