Oh the irony! (partial vent)

So, my DH wanted me to quit work for the longest time. LONGEST TIME. He wouldn't shut up about it, constantly begging to be a stay at home wife and mother.
So, long story short...he's a complete ass, abusive, and selfish...we finally decided to separate for 3 months and see how things go, but I'm almost 100% sure I'll file for divorce.
Anyways, last night, I ask him "why do you treat me the way that you do?" He told me he resents me because I'm a stay at home mom and wife. SERIOUSLY! SERIOUSLY! I fucking quit work for you, because you wouldn't leave it alone until I quit. And him knowing that I wouldn't enjoy it because I told him over and over again that I don't have the personality to stay at home. But, obviously, my word is never fucking good enough.

  • you said he's abusive...that explains why he doesnt reason with anything like when he asked you to be a stay at home mom, abusive people, not all, but some, NEVER take the blame for anything, its always someone else's fault.

  • My ex-husband wanted me to keep climbing the corporate ladder and make more and more money for us because he wouldn't get a better job or even a second job (even though I wasn't "ALLOWED" to get a second one), but still resented me for making more money than he did.

  • That's a common case of controlling. He tells you what to do, calls you names, blames you for his decisions. Control freak.
