i'm a mom of 4, age 47, and my husband is 50. Married 25 yrs. But what is increasingly hurtful to me is that he often insults, criticizes, and berates me in front of the children, for any manner of things that i supposedly do wrong. He speaks to me like I'm 5.
i.e. He knew that today we had to make a decision re moving furniture. i waited til noon for him to wake up, + 2 hrs for him to read the paper and have computer time, then asked him if he could come now, and he came and yelled at me in front of our 13 yr old daughter that I "constantly interrupt him" and that i was "keeping him away from his computer" (i don't -- he has hrs of "playtime" on the computer daily and i don't say a thing). so today for the first time, i stood up for myself and asked him 'not to rip me apart' in front of the children. I feel bad about doing that. :(
He could save his criticism for when we're alone. Am i right in feeling hurt?
