Hello,
Fell in love, have 2 stepsons and a daughter and my husband swept me off my feet when I met him. Now it's been 3 years were married and any chance he gets he puts me down, in front if the kids and not, he talks down at me and when I say wow you're mean he states at me and doesn't give up trying to prove to me what I did was wrong like load the dishwasher the wrong way, or over protect my daughter too much, and tonight, on my 42nd birthday he ruined my day again. That's why I joined this community. I work part time but I consider myself a stay at home mom because I run like a chicken all day long for the kids and my house and my husband with absolutely no recognition, which isn't even the worst part, its that through defending myself I'm starting to dislike who I am.

Well something needs to change before he drives you out or he finds someone else to abuse.

What he is doing is verbal and emotional abuse which is worse than the physical.

Either you go to counseling to save your marriage or leave.

Not all husbands are mean, you have found yourself an abusive one though.

You don't have to put up with it. You can either suggest couples counseling or go by yourself to build up your self esteem.

You don't want your children to think that's how men should treat women though! You definitely don't want your daughter thinking that that's how her husband should treat her.

My best advice would be to leave. I was married to a man like that and they don't change. My current husband is the complete opposite and treats me like a princess. I'm glad that my boys have a decent role model in their lives and realize that women should be treated equally.
