How to deal with difficult husband

I don't know where to begin. I have no problems with him helping me around, with the kids or financially. The problem is he complains about a lot of things. He thinks it's all about him. Of course he does not believe that. He is always right and believes what he wants and thats that. If he you offend him and he believed that it's intentional, then that's what it is. You get the picture. I regret being married to him.

  • honey i've been having the exact same feeling about my husband for the past few days. and our fights got pretty loud/crazy over the past few days. i have a daughter and thats the only thing thats keeping me here, but i really dont know. i'm thinking about a divorce, but sometimes i think imight be over reacting. we havent made up and i'm scared to make huge decision while i'm still so ticked off. i'm thinking about dropping my baby off at my mom's, n spoiling myself for a day, n make the decision when i'm more rested and thought out. email me, i'd love to talk to u about what ur going thru and possibly help u out.

  • I'm sorry :-( I don't know if it's practical for you all right now, but could you maybe get him to go to counseling with you? Or maybe keep a journal of what's going on and how you feel about it, and at the end of a month share it with him, so he can sort of be confronted with it, where instead of being able to say "it's just one comment, she's blowing it out of proportion" he can see - NO - it was several "little comments" all day, every day.

    I don't know, hopefully something will give and things will get better for you!

  • Next time he starts bitching tell him the world doesn't revolve around him and he needs to get over it.

  • My husband is like that too. I've gotten to the point where I'll comment according to his rants. If we hit a red light and he makes a comment I just say, "You know the light changed because you were coming. I saw the city guys rigging it earlier this week just for that reason." If something that is unavoidable happens to him I tell him I arranged it because I thought it would be funny. ex. leaving a toy on the floor, breaking a dish, the baby spitting up on him. The list is endless so my may of dealing with it is by commenting to point out how the world is out to get him. Of course I tried talking to him about it and he just dosen't get it!
