  • In my heart of hearts I hope he gets help? what is at the core of his issues causing/triggering it??? Maybe simple therapy in coping skills might help? ~*Hugs*~... hope everything works out for the best!

  • It really sounds like your hubby is depressed. I'd say if at all possible you could benefit from therapy..or atleast him if he is willing to go. Anti-depressants aren't just for women, let him know that seeking help isn't a sign of weakness but one of strength that will benefit all of you in the long haul. Good luck OP!

  • he is on an anti-depressant already...nothing he tries ever seems to help much...and it is usually triggered jus by stupid lil fights that we have...ones that NORMAL couples jus work through....i dunno what to do.

  • The anti-depressant that he is on now may not be what's best for him. He should speak with his doctor about switching to a different med.

  • Call his bluff!! Tell him there's the door... either get out or stop making treats!! That plus what Simplicity just said about his meds!!!!

  • I agree with previous poster, call his bluff. My dh use to pull out the word divorce anytime we fought and it did not go his way. Finally I asked him why he always throws the word divorce out there and he said "as a threat". Well I told him "it is no longer a threat" and that is the last time he uttered that "threat". Because he knows next time I will drive his but to the courthouse myself. If it is constantly used as a threat it becomes meaningless or you start to think that is what they really want. Call his bluff!! Definately!!!
