Call me weird, but I don't like cry scenes. And I know for a fact you'd be calling a lot of other people weird too if you called that weird.
Have you ever noticed how ineffective a crying moment can be? I know, all of us authors might be crying with the character. And sometimes, it's okay to have a character cry.
But crying... crying is about the worst physical way you can show your character is going through an emotional phase. Everyone cries. Just rarely enough to make it seem like some great thing to us authors, but it's very inexpressive - or, at least, much less than you could have it be. Live up to the scene's emotional intensity, reveal a habit in the character - make this his scene, not a weeping one.
That said, a moment or two is acceptable. But especially in a book, most of the time you're going to want to keep it to the absolute minimum.
While movies can get away with a crying scene a bit easier, we writers, we can't do that so well.
Most of all, we usually don't want our characters ending up like that man in the picture above, do we?
So display that moment of intense distress - but make it original, and think before letting a character shed tears.
