Does He Have Issues? He Won't Stop Crying!

My husband is a very kind and considerate human being. Gentleness was one of the qualities that I desired in my mate but lately, my husband has developed a bizarre need to cry over the most ridiculous circumstances.

My husband and I watched a movie awhile back, in which the dog killed over towards the very end. I'll admit, the movie was a tearjerker. My husband took the movie to heart. He cried uncontrollably. Eventually I had to tell him to knock it off.

We're expecting our first baby, I don't want the father of our child blubbering everywhere. Every so often it's okay to cry, but my husband has been crying out of control lately.

I addressed my mother-in-law about this issue, and she told me that my husband has always been the sensitive one in the family, she said he was perfectly fine.

I don't like cry baby men, and now I'm married to one. My dad was a tough guy, I only seen him cry once, and that was at my grandma's funeral.

My husband cries seemingly almost everyday! He won't stop crying! Does he have issues?

According to Wayne Giancaterino, Ph.D., a male psychologist in Honolulu, "Men are more vulnerable to loneliness than women, they have a greater need for belonging and connection. Maybe because women come from women, whereas men don't come from men. Perhaps boys start out more constitutionally adrift than girls. Thereby needing more connection, more deeply and consistently. Otherwise, they may find their feelings intolerable and run from them"

Some men such as Darlene's husband feel comfortable expressing their emotions through tears. most men who enter into fatherhood for the first time may feel overwhelmed or emotionally moved to tears. Seeking counseling for both parents could be needed. The fact that Darlene was raised by a dad that did reveal his emotions through tears could cause her to feel strange towards her husband who is not afraid to cry.
