People cry for all different reasons.  Women cry for MANY different reasons.  This guy's list of why his wife cries needs to be read and enjoyed.  She is probably crying now because the list went viral.  

You can see the original list scrawled onto a notepad on Uproxx

The man who is not named in the article lists these as the reasons his wife cries:


  • She found out swans can be gay and thought it was really nice.
  • She was hungover and saw a picture of a piglet.
  • I waited for it to be dark and pretended to be the Babadook.  I don't know what the Babadook is but I am assuming it's a scary monster. 
  • The fluffy bunny escaped from an arctic fox in a documentary.
  • There were no biscuits in the house.
  • She remembered swans can be gay.
  • I tried to hold her hand when she wasn't expecting it.
  • I cooked her dinner after a long day.
  • She watched a video about a dog.


Yep the tear factory gets us every time and we are never really sure how to handle it.  Sometimes I have no idea how my wife can cry over certain things.  For instance, Sunday morning Erica asked me if I wanted to take a walk to go get coffee.  I said not really and went back to what I was doing.  She asked again casually and I said not really.  Then after about an hour I noticed I was getting the silent treatment and when I asked why ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE.  I was told I obviously did not want to spend time with her and the tears were flowing.  I don't get it.  Maybe I just did not want coffee.

P.S.  We went for coffee.
