in front of friends or family. my DH will preach for hours and not let it go, if he's upset the whole world knows. i usually just ignore him and say if i ignore him he will stop. i decided next time he does it i dont care who it is, family his or mine, friends his or mine, im going to get up and say we are going home because your acting like a child, and if he refuses to leave i get in the car and go and apologize to whoever is standing there and say sorry but he is acting like a child he needs to go home. should i do this next time? what would you do? i know i know most women on here would not tolerate this behavior! easier said than done, my DH has  a very strong dominating personality no one wins with him, no one!

 I'm not sure because that would never happen w/ my DH.

 I wouldn't address it in front of everyone, so I would talk to him about respect when we got home.

Not sure because my husband is an adult and treats me with respect.

I imagine it is uncomfortable. im usually embarrassed for him! i do tell him to have self control and respect for me esp in front of others. but he doesnt listen hes just obnoxious!

mine did this ONCE when we were dating..we were in front of his friends..i said "look dude, just because you are in front of your friends doesn't mean you need to be putting up a front by acting like an asshole...no one is impressed" was it harsh...yep...did it work? absolutely.

My husband treats me as his equal so that would never happen. I wouldn't marry someone who felt the need to "scold" me alone, much less in front of anyone.

I honestly have no idea how I would react to that aside from telling him he was making a damn fool of himself. My SO is the opposite, it's almost scary how zen he is when he's upset.

I'd leave.  My husband and I disagree, but he doesn't degrade me in front of others.  I have no tolerance for people behaving in that manner.  Which is why I may end up in hot water this summer when my brother-in-law stays for a week.  It wouldn't take much to have me telling him where he can shove it.

I'd apologize to whoever had to hear his childish rant and leave him if he didn't want to go right then. He wants to act like a child, treat him like a child.

That's what my SMIL  does. Her DH is much better now.

 

I'm unclear; is he insulting you, or just blasting his opinion
