I am having a lot of relationship issues and I am not sure I wish to stay with my husband anymore. It seems like everyday everything I do for him is wrong and he criticizes everything, and blaming me that it isn't up to his standards. I feel like I am being bullied all the time and walk on eggshells when he is home. We have a son together and he is just a year old, my husband loves him but he also picks on him a lot to the point my son won't hardly have anything to do with him. I have tried talking to my family about what has been going on but they either try to make light of my concerns or try to brush it off so I feel as if I am left with no one to talk to. I feel alone and that I would be better off leaving my husband and being a single mother instead of living with him and still feeling as if I am a single mother.

He's a typical abuser. He makes sure he does all the right things and as soon as you are married, he slips into his real persona.
Read any information that abused women have written and you will see your own story in it.

I have been married 5 months. But the issues didn't start right away it has slowly gotten worse. I am going to look into going to a councilor even if he doesn't come maybe I am missing something the councilor could point out.

He is bullying you and you don't have to put up with it.
I would suggest marriage counseling but I have a feeling he wouldn't go. You can talk to him about the way he treats you but I also feel he won't change or listen to you.
My ex was the same and it wore me down so much. My self esteem took such a battering that it took me years to gain my confidence back.
If your husband won't go to marriage counseling I suggest you get some for yourself. It helps to talk to someone and get an outsiders perspective.
My opinion is that he probably won't change so you have to decide if you want to stay in an unhappy relationship or do what's right for you and your child.

how long have you been married, and maybe you should consider marriage counseling...?
