  • In July my husband got 2nd and 3rd degree burns to his arms and legs. The last time I saw him cry was a few days later when he was on the phone to our son trying to explain to him why daddy couldn't come home.

    My husband rarely cries. The last time before this was his younger sisters wedding 3 years ago.

  • Mine rarely does, but on rare occasions he does and it is usually over feeling like a failure about something. He can be really hard on himself about stuff. The last time was a few weeks ago when our marriage nearly fell apart over a couple of days and after he finally realized he had made some mistakes and that most of it was his fault, I saw actual tears and the most forlorn expression I've ever seen, and it was one of the things that actually kept us together, because I realized he really did see how serious it was, whereas sometimes he just doesn't "get it." Also, I just could not stay angry at someone that looked just as miserable as I felt. It made me want to cry, to see him cry, because it was such a serious situation.

  • about a month ago my husband cried because he was diagnosed with skin cancer, his aunt who died of breast cancer was first diagnosed with skin cancer so it hit home.. he's fine but it scared him for our son.

  • A long time ago, before our first baby was even in the picture. I had had an abnormal test result at the doctor's office. I told him we should wait a while to have a baby just in case it wasn't a fluke and I had something I might die from. He was quiet so long I looked at him, there were tears in his eyes and I heard them in his voice as he said he didn't want to talk about that happening.

  • Just the other night...we got some unexpected bills, also trying to go through school and raise a child. We always ok with the bills we have, but when something big happens, car needs repair, etc. it just feels like whenever we get ahead there's something to pull us right back down. I always try to keep a positive attitude, and he's trying so hard to make a good life for us. He NEVER cries. Ever. It's hard to see him get that upset.

  • He never cries at all. I've only seen him once and he was drinking and telling me about his brother that had died.

  • he rarely cries. last time i saw him cry was when our son was born in july 2008. we've been together almost 9 years and i've only seen him cry a handful of times. tears of joy and sadness.

  • He cries when something hurts him emotionally or makes him happy. He was not raised in that macho, real men don't cry attitude. He was raised that a real man shows emotion.
