  • My husband has never said that to me. If knows what's good for him, he will stop that nonesense. Any man with a brain knows that is the worst thing you can say to a woman. You need to really act upset about it if you are and make your feelings clear and known.

  • I would make some comments about his body parts that would hurt his feelings. Not the most mature thing to do but maybe it will get through to him that way.

    Your SO/DH shouldn't be doing stuff that intentionally hurts your feelings and once you tell him that it does he should stop.

  • Start pointing out all his faults and then remind him that if he loved me he would care that he is hurting my feelings. Take me for who I am, good, bad or ugly.

  • Yes and then I divorced him. Why do you stay? Everyone deserves to be around people who love and appreciate them.

  • Tell him he's got a small penis and see how he likes that! You can lose weight but he cant gain inches or girth! lol

  • One time he said I should accept that my family line has short, fat and dumpy women. I told him that was better than his line being full of men who are stupid and put their foot in their mouth. I've learned not to get upset over stupid stuff he says. He sometimes does it to get a reaction. I'm too old to fight over silly stuff.

  • No he does not call me fat. He better not either. Because I will start on his flaws.

    When he does that, do it back to him. Or leave his mean ass.

  • That's emotional abuse. You DO NOT have to take that crap! If my man said that ONE TIME to me he would never have the priviledge of kissing my fat ass again!
