  • Its not you it is him! he sounds like he is looking for a reason to be grouchy. Sit down and tell him how it is making you feel and that you want to please him but you dont know what he wants. Tell him also what he can do to please you. You cant make someone happy who chooses to be grouchy!

  • Wow, sorry to hear your living like that hon. It sounds like your with a real control freak. Don't allow him to talk down to you like that, and let him know how you feel about being treated the way is he. You don't deserve it, no one dose. I know these girls will give you very good advice on this one. Good luck hon and stand up for yourself. Hugs

  • You can't fix that level of assholitude.

  • He sounds like he's very controlling and will not be happy unless he's making you unhappy.
    You need to sit down and have a clam conversation and stand up for yourself.

  • Just tell him that you are going to do all the bills, so that he does not have to worry about it. This way you are in control of it and thinks he has less to do, which should make him happy.

  • control = abuse

    taking control of all bills, great idea, and you need to have idea of what money is avaliable, should he decide to be more controlling
    have a slush fund

  • take care of the bills urself, dont even ask him

    Answer by san78 at 2:33 PM on Oct. 21, 2010

  • I agree, he is super controlling. You need to stop allowing him to treat you this way. When he begins to complain about what you've done or not done just walk away. Don't discuss it, don't argue and don't apologize! If he pursues you, explain that you aren't discussing it until he can treat you with respect. There's no excuse for him to behave this way, it will only get worse if you don't stop it now. As for the bills, designate who is responsible for what bill and stick with it. I'm responsible for making sure all bills are paid, not because my dh asked me to, he's just not responsible enough to. GL
