Does him crying bothers you? Does it make him less of a man?

He's human crying over something sad. I really don't see the issue here.

My husband is a burly military NCO who has to leave the room or change the channel if the Sarah McLachlan animals-in-the-pound commercials come on. I find it endearing that he's a softie at heart.

Be glad he can give himself over to empathy that way.

I don't think it's strange, more likely cute.

I don't cry much in real life. In case of emergency I act as a supporter, comforting those in need or taking action for those who are baffling. I try to be strong and calm and not to lose my head. However there are emotions underneath and they are accumulating. Getting teary eyed or openly crying on the movies is a way of relieving stress and it's harmless.

Agreed that kids' movies are the worst and those about animals.

Seems like it.

if you all want a real tear jerker of a movie, watch the green berets with john wayne. the last scene will have even the toughest of men letting go of the tears.

I wouldn't call it weird...I would call it just being human.

Maybe you should talk to your husband about it if you want to know why he does it?

Not weird at all. The Jim Valvano ESPY speech has me sobbing like a 4 yr old every time. How can it not?

In that speech he said there are 3 things you should do every day: laugh, think and have your emotions moved to tears. If you can do all 3 then its a pretty solid day. You can't argue with that.

That said there is no crying in baseball or at work. If he's crying at work then that is unacceptable.
