  • My dh does that crap too, but he is bipolar as hell. It's up to you sweetie. My dh realizes he's screwed up and tries to make up for it, but it's helped alot since hes went and found out what was wrong with him, and he's learning to cope with it and try to deal with it. Good luck sweetie!

  • Has it always been like this or just recently? 6 years and 3 children I would say if I was me I would try to work on it. I would be firm in saying you will not stand for this emotional abuse, and mean it! Maybe you could have some counciling. Are you married?

  • try a couples communication class, it'll help him find his voice in a not so negative way.

    and if that doesn't work go to counseling or see a family therapist.

    and if that doesn't help, maybe a break, re-eval of everything.
    But try those first before you call it quits.

  • Yes- have you tried couples therapy? Nobody deserves to be treated like that. Even if he says he doesn't mean it- that's just a bad excuse.

  • T to talk to a ohycoligist. Thats verbal abuse and u do not deserve that. U may want to talk to a phycologist. Wat if its more serious. No relation is not worth a try. I hope u still love him. Fir better or worse. Dont give up but niether put up.

  • Is he an alcoholic?

  • It's a very serious question and you don't give much information about what he is like in general. If he is overall a decent husband but gets stressed and is negative like that, leaving seems very extreme. But you do need to work together on the issue.
