Friday night, I went to the arena to play ice hockey w/DH's coed team. As a spare, I didn't have a jersey so I went to the men's locker room and waited outside while someone told DH I was there. I was at the wrong rink and wrong dressing room so it took a LONG time for someone to not find DH. While I waited, I watched a long argument between a female parent and male parent from the kid's game that was just ending. The female pushed the male parent. He started pat/slapping her face. Her husband/boyfriend/partner came around the corner as male parent was doing this. He went ballistic and ran after male parent. There were 2 males trying to calm down the 2 parents arguing. The husband/boyfriend ended up knocking all 4 males to the ground. One almost landed on me because he went flying. They were all 4 rolling on the ground and fighting. I leaned over the mass of males and yelled in my best "mother voice"...STOP IT RIIIIIGHT NOW! GROW UP! I have a bellowing and commanding voice so they stopped and looked up at me. The 2 men who were trying to stop things were able to get everyone under control at that point. The female parent walked up to the male parent and started yelling at him again - trying to start it all up again. So I stepped in front of her and told her to leave the building. She started yelling at me about her son (the reason for the argument)...I told her that we had heard her story and she needed to leave NOW. She told me to get out of her face. I told her she was just causing trouble and needed to LEAVE NOW. She left.
DH heard about all this when I got to the right rink bc I was super late for my game. He was very upset when he heard. He feels I put myself in harms way for no reason. I could have been hurt. I could have been arrested (really? why? I would not have been provoked to assualt the women, I was calm and collected. I would have restrained her w/o violence if she tried anything physical with me).
Now, you have to realize that this is the type of person I am. I believe that we need to speak up and stand up when things are not right. I have done so many times in the past. Dh knows this about me.
So do you think he has a point here?
Or is it unreasonable of him to expect me to do/be something different when he knew how I was when he married me?
Thanks for reading this novel :)
