  • my ex for almost 10 yrs did that to me and i still can not for give him, we did everything and nothing helped. tell the pastor everything, so maybe he can help both of you better..and its only gonna teach the child that its ok to call people mean and nasty names.

  • I know it is hard to forgive and sadly I agree I too believe your son is already affected. Work hard at respect and walking away when angry. To forgive him pray really hard about it.

  • i don't think that should happen at all... children should never see you fight or belittle eachother.

  • Well if the names are hurtful then you both need to change.....and I must say if you have issues with your husband try to solve it yourself. The Minister is just a man, he can tell you what he thinks but have you stopped to think,,,,,hey what if he is going thru something like this himself how can he give advice, you will never know his problems. Pray for guideance ang GOD will lead the way, never rely on Man to fix your life he is as inperfect as you are. I would never go to talk to someone about my personal life. I pray and try to work it out ourselves. Me and my Husband kid around with each other but never say hurtful things when playing or when we are really mad, it's hard to be strong, pray and work on your selves...Good Luck

  • It should NOT happen at all. Your son will think it is ok to do this to others, especially women. You and your husband are sending your child the wrong message. TELL your husband that if he feels the need to put you down, to walk away instead. Or to write it down and throw out the paper. You DESERVE respect from your husband and he isn't giving it to you. Ask your husband if this is how he wants his son to act.

  • I know exactly how you feel my husband does the same thing and everyone is so quick to say file for a divorce and all that but sometimes that isn't the answer either
