Man Who Took 280-Mile Walk To Cool Down After Argument With Wife, Had To Pay Big Fine

For guys, being in a relationship can be pretty challenging. Most men are not very good at communicating their emotions, especially during heated arguments. Some people choose to walk away or go somewhere where they can cool off instead of arguing. While walking away should only be used as a last resort, there are healthier ways to resolve issues in a relationship. Unresolved issues in a relationship accumulate like tiny cracks in the hull.

An unidentified man in Italy decided to walk for a week to calm himself after a heated argument with his wife. The 48-year-old left Como, located in northern Italy, and walked for more than 280 miles to the south in about a week. According to the Independent, he walked about 40 miles a day to calm down his anger. The man’s journey ended in Fano, a popular beach resort on the Adriatic coast. However, the government had issued a nationwide lockdown, which meant curfews between 10 p.m. until 5 a.m.

As police were out on patrol, they spot the man walking at about 2 a.m. They questioned him and were said to have been astonished to find where he had come from. After putting his information into their system, police managed to confirm that his wife reported the man missing several days ago.

While they were clearly impressed with the man’s odyssey, rules were still rules.

And so the man was fined about €400 ( or $485) for breaching the nationwide curfew. They then put him up in a hotel, reports the il Resto del Carlino.

Despite walking such a great distance on foot, it’s said the man wasn’t hurt. He later told the paper:

He also revealed that during his adventure, strangers often offered him food and drink.
