Judge orders man to take his wife on a date

Is this cute or horrifying? You decide

In Broward County, Florida, a judge has ordered a man to take his wife to dinner, bowling, and then marriage counseling.

“He’s going to stop by somewhere and he’s going to get some flowers,” Judge John “Jay” Hurley said during the first appearance hearing, as the story is told by the Orlando Sun Sentinel. “And then he’s going to go home, pick up his wife, get dressed, take her to Red Lobster. And then after they have Red Lobster, they’re going to go bowling.”

The man was charged with domestic violence, but, as the judge sees it, not the serious domestic violence kind.

“He didn’t actually hit her,” the judge said.

If you grab your wife’s neck and threaten to hit her because she complained you didn’t wish her a “happy birthday,” you’ll probably be back before the judge again.
