A husband has declared his marriage over after his wife salted their popcorn at the movie theater against his wishes. Cops were called to mediate the snack dispute at Marcus Majestic Cinema in Brookfield, Wisconsin, on the outskirts of Milwaukee, at about 9.31pm on May 27, per a police report obtained by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
The wife explained that prior to the movie, she was in line to get popcorn when her husband asked her not to salt it before he walked away. After getting the popcorn, she decided that since she had paid for it, she would go ahead salt it despite his protests.
When the husband discovered his wife had salted the popcorn, he accused her of being unfaithful and declared that their marriage was over, according to police. The husband then refused to watch the movie and waited outside the theater while the wife enjoyed the film and the popcorn.
The wife found him after the movie, but would not let him drive, claiming that he drives too fast when he is angry. The husband refused to get in the car unless he could drive, but the wife held the keys.
Fearing he'd be stranded at the theater with no way home, the wife called police after he said he wouldn't ride home with her.
It is unclear how long the couple had been married, or what movie they had planned to see that night.
