My DH doesnt like being contradicted and he likes to say things just to see my reaction. And its those moments where i feel like in stuck in limbo.
Example...
We visit his home town and stay with his parents for 10 days. On the 9th night his friend is having a house warming party but since we were out with family we got "home" around 10. Too late to take our LO but his mom offeres to watch her if we want to just drop by anyways.
He says "naw, im going by myself for a while. She can stay here with LO"
Just by the tone of his voice I know hes testing me.
If i tell him I want to go, I dont trust him and I dont know those people anyways.
If I dont say anything he will then taunt me.
" Thats fine with you right? You dont mind if I go by myself.... really, you dont care?.. ypu dont care if i go to a party with my old highschool buddies?.. they have probably already started drinking." Ugh..... i hate games.

 All I can gather from this is that he is a huge assholio.

It seems to me that he took your silence for not approving and was trying to make sure. Maybe I'm weird but I totally get it. He just wants to hang with his pals.

I don't do that "walking on eggshells" bullshit. Tell your douchey husband to stop being a 4th grader.

Doesn't sound like a fun marriage.

Offer a third option - not one of the ones he has offered up, that way you are not giving control to him. In the above example, "That's fine honey, you go to that party. Your mom can still watch LO; I'm going to the bar."

Punch his face, tell him to quit the games and grow up, or leave his ass.

Quoting TisHerself:
