This ad only makes sense in the presence of the following cultural subtext:

Women’s anger is not valid in the same way that full adult humans’ (i.e. men’s) anger is valid.  You don’t need to get to the root of the problem and address it; just spend the right amount of money to show you love her.  She couldn’t possibly be having a reasonable reaction to being treated badly, she’s just feeling insecure or jealous or maybe on her period.
