Do you speak down to your husband in public?

If you didn't agree with something your husband were doing or saying would you insult him in front of people?

  • Nope, I respect him more than that. I wouldn't talk down to him in private either. I would just tell him how I felt or how he made me feel and we would discuss it and come to an agreement.

  • No, my mother does this though. We can disagree without disrespect, in public and at home

  • If I don't like something he is doing I tell him, but I do it quietly. I hate when I hear bickering in public. He will do it to me, really loud so everyone can hear, and I think it is awful! No one needs to know our issues!

  • if i don't agree I will speak up, its not an insult, just a difference in opinion IMO

  • I try not to, but sometimes he just keeps pushing me, but even then I will pull him aside or if I can't I will say something in his ear, if I can't do either I tell him that I need to talk to him once we get to the car.

  • I don't speak differently to my husband when we are in public than I do when we are home. That said, I don't think I speak down to him...

  • Nope I would wait and talk to him in private but even then I wouldn't talk down to him, he is an adult who can make his own choices and last time I checked I was Not his mother :))

  • depends on whether or not he's embarrassing me or just himself... and how bad he pissed me off... I might...
