Witty Wife Shuts Her Husband When He Makes An Inappropriate Joke About Her At Thanksgiving Dinner

by Navkiran

In a world where women have elevated their social rights and stations in society alongside men, many men think it's time to send crack some jokes at the expense of women. Jokes are made for fun, but sometimes they make women uncomfortable.

But how about the men making jokes about their wives in front of their wives? There are times when women get annoyed by their husbands' behavior because they are cracking some inappropriate jokes that will make them angry, especially in the presence of other people.

These kinds of jokes might put other people in an uncomfortable position, especially in a public place or family gathering where many people are around to have fun. Only silly men pass jokes at the expense of their wives in front of everyone because they know it will make other women angry.

Do not think that your wife is too weak to hear jokes from you. Just give her a little bit of respect and make a joke that doesn't make her or the people around her uncomfortable.

One such husband tried to joke about his wife during a thanksgiving dinner at inlaws home in front of all the family members but what comes next is surprising. His wife didn't like that objectifying joke and gave a very witty reply and shut him down.

It is good to see that the wife didn't support the husband; instead, she refused to entertain the joke and maintained her dignity and respect in front of all their family members. However, it upset the husband and screwed the dinner... but kudos for standing up for herself!

Men must stop passing inappropriate jokes in front of everyone, especially if it's at the expense of their own wives. They also must understand that just because someone is laughing with you doesn't mean they enjoy your company.

Share this story with your friends and family and educate them about not making an objective joke about their partner. Tell them to be good husbands and fathers and behave appropriately and with love with their partners.
