I'm a sahm. I'm literally with my kids 24/7/365. I haven't had a babysitter in almost 2 years. Well, my husband's cousin was getting married today and we decided to get a sitter and make it a date. I was so excited to get out and just enjoy myself without having to be a mommy. We went dress shopping last night and I wanted something sexy, but my husband kept picking out the most frumpy grandma dresses I've ever seen. Every time I'd pick a sexy dress (and I'm not talking slutty, I just mean not something my grandma would wear) he'd find a reason he didn't like it. "The color won't look good with your skin" "You don't have any shoes to match that" etc. I finally found one I LOVED and told him I was trying it on regardless of what he said. Anyway, I put it on and I felt hot!! I came out of the dressing room and said "See, not too bad, huh?" He just said "It is too bad. I don't like it. Just...no" I went back into the dressing room and cried. I wound up buying a VERY conservative dress that he loved. I told him he hurt my feelings and he said I was overreacting and being overly sensitive. I disagree. I think he was being an insensitive jerk.
Then, while we were sitting at the wedding reception his mom leaned over to him to tell him that she had been thinking lately about how proud she was of her two sons because they were such caring people. She then says "Neither of you cared about what was on the outside when looking for a wife. You both have such good hearts to marry someone who wasn't supermodel gorgeous, but instead you found someone with a good heart.". He tried to tell me when we walked off that I had taken her comment the wrong way and that me being upset about what she said was proof that I was just in an overly sensitive mood. Needless to say, I had a terrible time at the wedding and felt like an ugly cow the whole time.
So, do you think I was overreacting or is he in the wrong here?
