@sienna76:  I think this kind of stuff is ridiculous — people forget things sometimes, I’m sure she’s not perfect! Embarrassing your husband or wife in front of others is never a good thing for a relationship. But then I don’t believe in publicly shaming anyone, and I’m so sick of those parents who publicly shame their kids as punishment these days. Absurd.

@sienna76:  I hate when people talk badly on Facebook or Twitter about their SO’s.  My BIL’s girlfriend does it all the time and I think it is absolutely awful.  I get you’re having problems, but to go on a public forum where you friends and family are and say bad things about your SO?  Come on!  Grow up!  She wonders why her friends don’t like him too!

My FI would be furious if I ever pulled something like that!!! How embarrassing for HER! I block those kind of people, drives me nuts.

I think it is completely childish. I see my friends do this ALL of the time. They lay out their entire laundry to the world then a day later act as if life is perfect. I usually roll my eyes when I see/read these things. But yet, I can’t look away!

Super tacky.  That not only makes him look bad, but also her.

@sienna76:  I loathe,detest and despise when people post things that I think shoukd be kept private on facebook. I have seen worse than your friends update though. I just wonder why you would want the 457 people on your friends list to know your man is a doofus and I’m sure he felt bad enough.

I put up silly things my SO says. For example, we were watching the Olympic opening ceremonies and he asked where the Eiffel Tower was. I gave him this look and said thats in France. The Olympics are being held in London. He then looked at me with a dead serious face and said “Well, aren’t they the same place.”

But, I would never in a million years right something like what you’ve mentioned. That is a little too embarassing and critical.

@sienna76:  Terrible! That is really brutal and I would never shame the man I love, no matter how disappointed or angry I was with him.

I never talk badly about my FI to anyone – I don’t spend 99% of the time gushing about how amazingly wonderful he is, so why would I talk about the tiny 1% when his quirks drive me crazy?  Once people hear that kind of stuff, they can’t un-hear it.

This sort of thing is solely reserved for women who are mean, childish and adore drama…if someone did something like this to me, the relationship would be over…I’m all about poking fun at myself, but I never criticize people, let alone on a public forum where they literally cannot defend themselves.

Dirty relationship laundry should never be aired out in public.
