  • He'll be out that door. 18 yrs or not, no one deserves to be treated like that.

  • Confused. He's 18 or you've been together for 18 years? If he's been saying that to you for 18 years...then I'd say wow...strong will to stay with someone that can be like that. If he's 18 years old and talking to you like that...then he's got a lot of growing up to do...and would not be in MY life if that were me. I couldn't handle it...I'd say one of us would be at the curb.

  • We have been together 18 yrs.... there is a 14 yrs difference...these words started lightly about 10 yrs ago... and have worsen in the last four...I have looked for work, unsuccessful thus far... everything is in his name...and no close family that i can rely on that is close to here, because I cannot move states away with child without a fight... since I have no money....stuck for the moments...He says that he means not to insult, only to motivate so things are and get done to his desires...
    Sorry never done this, just needing good advice in how to relate to him. It is alot of playing Ping pong....

  • I'm sorry if the OP wasn't clear in her initial question and description. Notice all of the other women who didn't fully understand? Vote me down or whatever, but I wasn't the only one who didn't understand.

  • Been there, done that. Wish I had moved on sooner. I have 3 kids and was in the relationship for 17 1/2 yrs. You need to save yourself and your child from this situation. No one deserves to be disrespected like that. It's verbal abuse. Run for the hills sister. I only had a couple of very p/t jobs when I was married. You can & will survive!

  • i say it's time to find yourself again. you don't want your child to think it's ok to treat ppl like that or that it is an ok way to be treated. you need to get a job and move on from him. you can be the single mom, you just have to find the strength in yourself to do it.
