We've been debating about getting a dog. He and his daughter are moving to another state in two weeks for his career and unfortunately due to my military service, I cannot go with them. I will see them once a month for the next two years, and we are going to try to time his visits with ovulation. I really want a dog, and found one in the shelter I like (great dane mix), because it will give me companionship while we are seperated as well as distract me from TTC. Well, he doesn't want me to have a dog. I've explained why I want one and he doesn't think it's a good idea.
Last night he was getting a little heated about it before bed and he threw some tissue paper and a candy wrapper from my bedside table onto the floor and kicked my dirty clothes that I had on the ground saying, "Look at this! How do you expect to take care of a living thing?!?"
I burst into tears, I couldn't help it. I couldn't stop crying and he didn't understand why I was so upset. He tried to ask what was wrong and why I was so upset about the dog and I told him my thoughts were nowhere near the dog and asked if he really thought that. That's when it donned on him how it had sounded and he freaked out and apologized and said he didn't mean it that way. I know he didn't mean it but he still said it and it upset me so bad, it still makes me want to cry right now.
