Judge Orders Man to Take His Wife to Red Lobster and Then Bowling

A man in Fort Lauderdale was ordered to take his wife out to dinner and then bowling. Judge John Hurley said this during the hearing, via The Orlando Sentinel:

He’s going to stop by somewhere and he’s going to get some flowers. 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, Joseph Bray, was arrested and charged with domestic violence when he pushed his wife onto a couch and put his hands around her neck. Since Bray has no prior arrests and his wife said she wasn’t hurt or in fear of her life, Judge Hurley decided to give him the lighter ‘sentence.’

The judge asked the wife, who was only identified as Bray’s wife, where she wanted to go. She responded with Red Lobster and likes to go bowling. “Flowers, birthday card, Red Lobster, bowling,” Hurley said.

He also ordered that the couple begin seeing a marriage counselor within a week.

The article mentions that the fight all got started because he forgot her birthday. Man look, to forget someone’s birthday in this day is something in itself. Between social media and smartphones, there should be no reason to forget your wife’s birthday. Hell, just log onto Facebook if you have to, a notification pops up and informs you of any birthdays.
