The wife caused such a scene that security had to escort her out of the building

Each couple has their own way of handling disputes; some people immediately address issues head-on, while others want to take time to process before deciding how to handle a conflict. Whether you and your partner stay calm or become emotionally charged in arguments, it’s important to understand that there is a time and a place for those conversations. Usually, fighting in public makes a situation worse, as it may add layers of embarrassment, humiliation and resentment. According to clinical psychologist Dr. Joshua Klapow, “There is a fine line between disagreements in public — which can be healthy — and arguments or fights in public, which can ruin a relationship. The key is keeping the disagreement from escalating into the argument and keeping an argument from escalating into a fight.”

In the case of this particular story, the wife didn’t even allow her husband the opportunity to have a productive conversation. The way she handled this situation was toxic, as she violated a boundary and refused to wait to have a calm conversation when he got home. And this hostile confrontation is a huge sign that this wife does not know how to maintain a healthy relationship. According to Sabrina Romanoff, a therapist in New York City, “In a healthy relationship, partners have honest and non-hostile communication. While they may not be eye-to-eye on everything, they view disagreements as information about their partner, not a fight to be won.”

Sadly, people often assume that men are the only ones who exhibit toxic behavior and signs of abuse in relationships, but that’s not the case at all. Women are equally as capable of being manipulative and controlling in relationships. For a relationship to be functioning healthily, both parties must agree to treat one another with respect, understanding and trust, things that were clearly lacking here. We’re glad that the husband did not end up losing his job, but hopefully this eye-opening incident was a turning point for him. Let us know how you feel about this situation down below and how you would respond if you were in the husband’s shoes.

Readers have unanimously told the husband that he did nothing wrong and warned him about the signs of abuse
