This weekend he started calling me a piece of shit and today I told him that I'm not the type of woman who lets a man call her names or mentally abuse her and I really mean it.

I cried all night last night, but then I started to wonder if he was right. I'm so sorry for letting everyone know what's going on in my marriage. I just wish I didn't have to go through all of this.

 Once it starts, it only progresses.  The name calling becomes more frequent and the names get worse and more degrading.  If you let it continue, it can and probably will upgrade to physical abuse.  DO NOT LET IT GET TO THIS POINT!!!  You need to come up with a game plan.  Tell him to get counseling or you will leave...and stand your ground.  Start saving up money, so you CAN leave, when the time comes.

Good luck!

This is exactly what I would do.  Noone deserves to be treated the way your husband is treating you.

Tell him to get help or get out. He's already doing a number on you. He called you names and now you're wondering if he's right. Can't you see how he's already affecting you? Tell him it's time to shut up or get out.

100% agree

Put a stop to it right now ... my ex was like that.  He could be the sweetest, baby-talk man one minute, and then blow up at me the next -  he would take all his frustrations out on me whether it concerned me or not.  I have been called every name in the book.  In my case he was like a Chihuahua, always barked, never bit.  But one day he threw a set of keys at me from accross the room and I knew that was it.  Turns out he was cheating anyways and it was his way of "distancing himself from me"  but whatever ...point is, no matter how hard you may try - he will not change unless he gets help. Therapy or anger management. or Leave
