When ever there is a sad or bittersweet scene in a movie or tv show my husband is wiping constant tears. Yet I've never seen him cry over anything in real life. I wonder if that is the only way he can get out his emotions?

Well sometimes the way a scene is done, plus the sad music is what gets some people. IN scenes where I cry, the music does it for me. lol

I don't think it's anything worth studying in-depthly though.

That's pretty much the only time I cry too, and they are almost always kid movies. Cried during Big Hero Six last weekend. The music does play a part, like VG said. I always cry at the same part of Finding Nemo, the very end where the music picks up.

It's unusual for a man but does it bother you or something? Maybe just tease him gently for being a softie.

Lol thought I was the only one.

The scene in the last song where her father dies reduces me to tears every time. It's mainly the song she's playing though in combination with the fact that her father made it for her.

I also agree it's not worth thinking too much about.

It depends on the scene. I've gotten teary eyed a couple times but never full blown waterworks. And it's rare.

My ex-boyfriend cried during Awakening (Robert Deniro).

Yes I think it is weird. Yeah there are movies where crying is inevitable but every damn sad movie? Weird.

As long as he isn't a sissy in real life, I think it is cute.

Ever since I had kids of my own, I've been really vulnerable to displays of parental love. Does anyone watch Better Call Saul? The episode from last week called Five-O had a very powerful scene at the end where one of the characters discusses the circumstances surrounding his son's murder. I didn't cry but I came very close.

It's ok for a dude to cry. All the time though?

Have you encountered tear worthy situations with him in real life?

I would not call it weird that he cries for sad scenes in movies. It is just an emotional response. I agree with others, the music and setting of the scene can really set the stage here too, where just watching a sad news story on TV or something may not generate the same kind of emotional response. (News, etc is more matter of fact, where the movie is being crafted to illicit cries).
