My wife is a makeup artist, She always has those heavy makeup looks on which can be weird for me as guy sometimes, but she loves it and enjoys it so no problems there. though my friends and family tend to make funny, lighthearted comments on her makeup which she seems to take too seriously.
Now the situation, My 27th birthday was few days ago. we celebrated at a small diner with my guy friends and my wife. now my guy friends are brutally honest and make jokes and tease all the time, my wife knows how they are so no surprises there.
Anyways, My wife took a minute to use the toilet to get her makeup fixed as me and the boys were chatting. when she got back she asked me how she looked and before I could answer, My friend Austin responded by jokingly saying “Damn, you look like you just got out of the cancer ward with that heavy makeup on your face!”. the rest of the guys started laughing and I just stared at my wife. she got very upset and started arguing with Austin about how awful he was. others joined in and there was so much comotion. I felt upset that they were fighting during my birthday celebration.
I asked my wife to calm down and take a seat but she asked if I was okay with my friends making fun of her. Austin said “come on It was a joke!” I threw my hands up and said that I admit that my wife overreacted because really it was a joke, She lashed out on me and took a Grab home. The party was cut short and when I got home we began arguing.
I told her she overreacted and that she shouldn’t take everything seriously knowing how great she always looks but she turned it into an argument about how I let my friends insult her, and how I should’ve defended her and her integrity after I basically “forced” thise guys upon her when she was the ine who arranged for this enitre celebration.
she kept crying about getting humiliated and me dismissing her feelings and saying she overreacted.
