One from me and one from my boyfriend.
I'll start with mine: I was really stressed out about a life change a couple of weeks ago, and I was tearing up while talking about it with my boyfriend. He was being very comforting and trying to help me figure out how to feel better about it, but I was still very upset. We went upstairs to bed, and as we were lying there and continuing to talk, I began to sob. I was curled up against his chest, and his arms were wrapped tightly around me. I sobbed fairly hard for about five minutes, while he rubbed my back, hugged me, and told me he was right there and would always hold me while I cry. An interesting thing happened, though - he knows that even when I'm upset, my own crying turns me on, so when I'd stopped crying and was feeling a bit better, he was obviously very aroused, and we ended up having sex. I was thrilled that the whole situation had turned him on, and I joked that he was going to end up with a crying fetish himself. He said, mostly joking but with truthful intent, "who knows? If you like it, I like it."
Now an obs about him: about two weeks ago, we were arguing about something - it wasn't really a fight, we were just trying to figure out how to compromise on an issue. The issue wasn't really about our relationship - it brought up some things from our pasts (deaths, etc.) and a couple of minor issues that we ended up resolving. But anyway, we were already very emotional, and we'd both been wiping the occasional tear from our cheeks throughout the conversation. I made a comment about a topic he always gets deeply emotional about, and I think I was slightly too flippant - not in a mean way, but he was already on the verge of breaking down. We were lying on the couch, and he buried his face in my chest and started to sob.
I apologized, and he shook his head, indicating that he wasn't actually upset about what I'd said (he was actually upset about the bigger issue, which I knew), but he was sobbing too hard to speak f
