My wife has been feeling sad and has been in a bad mood all day. She started feeling this way last night. I tried asking her what was wrong she didn't say anything. I took her and the kids to the movies tonight she started feeling better. But now that we're home she's feeling sad again. We're in bed now she's laying on me she said she feels like she's gonna cry again. She's not pregnant or having her period. What's wrong with her? How can I comfort her?

i think the best you can do is show care
like hold her, when she lays on you kiss her head or something or stroke her hair (w/e she finds sweet), hug her, surprise her with breakfast in bed for no reason, get her something sweet (maybe if she saw something somwhere and it caught her attention?) , get her chocolates or flowers or love letters/notes (w/e she likes), date night... etc
just stuff that show you care, you can even simply say "what can i do to make you happy today?" and do w/e she asks (she might test you though to see if you mean it lol or she might ask for a hug or something) to her first thin in the morning when you two wake up (or when you do that breakfast thing)
and the movies seemed to make her feel better, can you drop your kids somwhere for a couple of days and just take her out often and when you're in the house do something fun together? video games, cooking... etc
and there has to be some reason for it, maybe her period is close but not there yet, maybe she is not ready to share, maybe a rough memory from the past... etc
just dont pressure her... and like i said i think she just wants affection rn
ps" im happy to see husbands who still care like that about their wives ^_^0

I find a combination of cuddling and being really gentle and then some tough love with teasing and humor to diffuse the situation works for me.
That said, my wife isn't so sensitive. With a more sensitive type, the attempt at humor and teasing her about it could backfire.
And last but not least, sometimes getting aggressive and having sex with them can help her feel better. There's usually a bit of resistance at first, like "What are you doing?" but if I proceed and she gets into it, after that she's pretty happy for the rest of the day/night.0
