First, please excuse any typos as this is being done on my smart phone- and i am drinking.

Just need to vent to my favorite outlet. The wife and I did our usual sunday night routine of trivia at the bar with friends. Our team was tied for first place. After the first tie breaker i volunteered for the second. I didn't know the answer and we took second. My team was trying to give the answer (which they aren't supposed to do) and i didnt look to them. My wife, in front of our friends, scowls at me and says why didnt you listen to us. I didn't have a good answer for a pointed rhetorical question and said "i guess i wanted us to lose!" Now she sittng in the bed room and i am watching tv with the kid. I have no interest in talking to her, but am i being foolish? Should ijust chalk this up to her anger over losing? If so, isnt that childish of her? Ahhhh what is a husband to do?

You should always push to win. If you aren't first you're last!!!

You should be fine, these kind of things blow over. And yes she's being childish but don't tell her that, will only make things worse.

Second place? Second place is no place! (Had to throw in the KK II reference)

Hahaha. Totally ignore her until she decides to talk to you, and then remark, "well someone was a sore loser tonight/yesterday/last week... (however long it takes ).

EDIT: Say it with a smile and half-jokingly!

To answer your question I have to ask this question "how bad do you want to be married?"

If it is Yes, I want to be married and stay married, then yes you were foolish. You are going to face much greater things in your life than a trivia game and it seems while she's mad, you're mad too. It starts with a sorry honey.

but if you don't care about being married... always say the first thing that comes to mind.

My advice, drink heavily. That solves everything.

Thanks guys for listening, just needed go blow off some steam last night. Still waiting for a admission of guilt from the wife, which may be a while. Normally I cave just to get things back to the status quo. Not this time, let's see how long this takes.

Usually when either my wife or I get in a snit about something the other party will threaten to poke them mercilessly. Not a euphamism.

Personally, I don't apologize unless I actually do something wrong. This see a ridiculous and so I have to think there is some underlying issue. Talk to her about it but don't apologize when you haven't done anything wrong. Explain your rationality to her like you did here. Now that everyone is sober, she will be more apt to shrug it off.
Best of luck, women are crazy.
