My husband is a jerk

So my husband and I have been married for a year and a half, we get along for a couple of days and then he says something to purposely make me upset. I just had a baby 3 weeks ago, and he will make comments like you still look pregnant or that I am scary looking. And then when I tell him I am unhappy because he makes me upset, he claims he is joking, but I don't think saying things like that is joking.

  • I usually say to talk to him, but you have. He IS being a jerk. I want to give you a hug. You just had a baby. He is being mean.

  • He is being mean, if I were you I would say something mean back & hurt his feelings to see if he likes it give him a taste of his own medicine =)

  • Jerk is kind of a nice word. He's a complete asshole. This is a time that he's supposed to be nurturing you as you recover, telling the mother of his child she's beautiful, especially considering the feat she's just accomplished, and staring in awe at his baby.
    WTF is wrong with him? Is he 14? He deserves an ass-kicking.

  • Hugs!!! I would ask him why he feels the need to make such comments, they are NOT funny they are rude and insensitive!!! I would also be a bit of a bitch and make some rude/smartass comments about his small dick or about his weight -- maybe then he will see just how much words can hurt, and hopefully he will stop. (if that does not work tell him that if he does not stop being rude he can pack up and get out!)

  • Thank you for all your advice. It really bugs me when he makes rude comments I don't find it joking. To me joking is saying something funny. Not commenting on their looks or weight.

  • What a jackass!! You need to make sure- and not nicely- that he knows with no uncertainty- that he is verbally abusing you and you WILL NOT stand for it. Thats total BS. I want to reach thru the screen and punch his face in.
