How Should I Feel?

Last weekend was my birthday so my Mom invited us over for cake. DH hates going there and with NO good reason. Anytime it comes to spending time with my family, he's in an awful mood!!! He told me that my mother is and g'ing retard because she wanted us to have cake! I was appalled and so taken aback I didn;t respond. He went to his Mom's to get his son and she called me. She said that he came in her house screaming and yelling. He said he doesn't want his son anymore, he wished he never got married, and a whole other bunch of garbage. Needless to say, his son is my stepson and heard the whole thing!! I'm so hurt that he said he wished we never got married! It's only been 7 months! He came home in a bad mood but didn't tell me what went on. His mother swore me to secrecy. So now I've been carrying this around for a week! How would you feel? Do you think he meant it?

  • Whether he meant it or not I would confront him. That is serious talk especially since he said it infront of his son. That is truly unacceptable and I couldn't be with a man who acted like that.

  • You should feel upset. See, I would not be able to not say anything about that. I would have made him talk to me about our marriage.

  • I agree, but I also don't want my mother in law dragged in the middle. She stuck up for me and I appreciate that. I want her to be able to trust me in the future.

  • honey i would give him exactly what he asked for first i would never allow any man to disrespect my mom, thats a def deal breaker, and then to say all that in front of the kid...all his shit would be at his mothers when he came home from work TONIGHT!

  • You should confront him, so what if you swore secrecy, he is always in a bad mood anyway. You still have time to go instead of staying with him for many yrs to come and regret it.... PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

  • I'd say that "I heard" and not reveal from whom. He sounds as though he is at the end of his rope- in other words, he doesn't sound in his right mind. A question that arises is how reliable is his mother- can she be trusted or has she blown it all out of proportion. If you notice any violent emotions, I'm not talking abusive, just out of control and inappropriate, then talk calmly with him, not accusing, and ask him to go with you to counseling. Meanwhile just for your own security, you should be making plans for a possible split- get job training or a job if you don't already have one, and so forth.

  • sadly men normally mean what they say... I think men are 9 times out of 10 unable to act like women do; like everything is ok... I am more worried about his son hearing him say that... what an a$$
