It is sad to say that I lived for 8 years dealing with a husband with similar ways. There wasn't always yelling involved, but he talked down to me and treated me as a child. We ended up splitting up, and that is when I realized that our "Marriage" was LONG gone. I realized quickly, that he was NOT going to walk all over me again. He would get all riled up about this matter or that matter and I just remained cool, calm, and collected. I know that it infuriated him that he couldn't break me down to tears anymore, but I felt better about myself. It eventually gets old and boring and the fire behind his ways kind of burns out a little. I am proud and happy to say that my divorce was finalized this past Monday.
