Husband Who Secretly Videotaped Dramatic Argument With Wife Deserves Divorce

OMG 213

Imagine one day you have a knock-down drag-out fight with your husband. You know you sound like a toddler having a tantrum but you just can't help yourself. You are beyond frustrated with him and your relationship. You reach the point of no return and act in a way you're not proud of. For most couples, that's where it would end. Hopefully you'd make up later, and you'd be left thinking, "How did I let myself get that upset?" But for one woman, this isn't where it ended. For her husband was secretly videotaping his wife's epic meltdown and then posted it on YouTube. Would you be surprised if I said the couple are now getting divorced?

According to Jim, the husband, this is what his wife acts like when she "doesn't get her way."

Jim and his wife are riding in a car when they begin arguing over going to a lake. She wants to go. He doesn't. Commence nuclear meltdown. "I'm about to go craaaaazzzzyyyyy!!!" she screams. "I wanna go on the laaaaake!!!!" She even begins kicking her feet on the car dashboard.

Does not getting her way warrant this behavior? No. But rarely is a fight about whatever the couple is fighting about. She wants to go to the lake and he doesn't? It's not hard to figure out from the video that what this is really about is a massive power struggle. She feels ignored. He feels belittled. The usual story.

By the time you get to a fight like this, a lot has gone before it. We don't know what she has had to put up with in the marriage to get to the point where she felt her only option was to act like this. Of course, according to Jim, she acts like this all of the time. But he has something to do with that too. He's pushing her buttons.

Additionally, Jim is the only one who knew they were being recorded, so he had the advantage of modifying his behavior so he appeared calm and tolerant in the midst of her tantrum. Quite an unfair advantage, that. So unfair that you'll have to go to the link to gawk at her meltdown because I don't want to post it here.

Let's not forget that marriage is supposed to be a sacred institution. Part of the foundation of marriage is the trust that you can be your worst with your partner, and even if he doesn't forgive you, he at least doesn't share it with millions of people.

The wife did manage to get the video removed from YouTube, but other channels and media outlets picked it up, so it's out there forever now. Too bad she didn't secretly record him in the sack and post that so we could all laugh!

Thank goodness these two are getting divorced.

What would you do if your husband ever secretly videotaped a fight?

I don't think the issue is that he video taped a fight as much as she's dog gone lost her mind. Never seen a grown woman act this way, even pregnant woman don't get this crazy.

No sympathy for her whatsoever. That's her behavior that she displays even when he's modifying his behavior (i assume, havent seen the video) then obviously she has no problem acting like that with or without provocation. If she is embarrasses now, good. Grow up

If I heard correctly this morning, the husband video taped her meltdown because nobody believed him that she acted like this when she didnt get her way. I think we are all guilty of going a little over board. But she went NUTS!! She acted like a child because she couldn't go to the lake, I mean come on she should be extremely embarrassed by her behavior. Hopefully this will be an eye opener for her that adults don't and should never act like that.

He does deserve a divorce...to be free of that crazy chick.  If that video is the real deal, she deserves to be humiliated for acting like a damn baby and treating her husband like crap.  Maybe there's more to the story, who knows...but just going off the evidence presented, someone needs to slap the shit out of her and tell her to grow the hell up.

I just hope she never reproduces!! Could you imagine how her kids WILL act?!? Good for him for catching her on tape. 👍

the thing is, as stated in the article, you have no idea what got her to this point. the husband may be such a selfish narcissist that never does anything for her or makes time for her or their relationship and she has just gone nuts trying to get him to notice her any kind of way. i was in a relationship like that and while i never got to the point she did, i did rage out out of frustration of never having any of my needs met and never being taken seriously. you just have no idea what this relationship is like to say one way or another whether she is just like this or whether she was driven to it. either way she needs to get help to calm her life and get to a better place.

no sympathy. he was already leaving her at that point. that guy had already told her they wouldn't go but still ' I WANNA GO ON THE LAKE STOP DOING YOUR HOUSEHOLD DUTIES AHHH '

I think most of us have been upset about something else and snapped over a different issue (I know I have).  BUT, she isn't yelling at him, she isn't being a bitch, she's behaving like a toddler.  There is NO excuse for this behavior.  She should be embarrassed.

How can anyone defend this entitled, bratty, whiny, childish "female"? Good grief--he was needing to get chores done--if she weren't so selfish, maybe she would've thought to HELP HIM WITH THE CHORES, and then they could've gone to the laaaaaaaaaake. Selfish, bratty, entitled bee.

I saw the video this morning, he kept saying I have to get my tires rotated, then we'll go to the lake
