thisbeehides: i was in a relationship like this for 3 years. It will become more frequent, he will start breaking things, he will say infreasingly hurtful things. He will move to physical violence. He would spit in my face or push me against the wall…or hit the wall beside me, but “he never hit me.” It’s abuse.
If you need to talk, just pm me. The best thing I have ever done was leave the situation and focus on my own health and well being.

katyalanalove: know what? I cry when I get upset, frustrated, mad, etc., but so does my husband! Crying as a reaction to an emotion is not a male vs. female reaction, it is a human reaction! Do not make an excuse for an abuser.

thisbeehides: If your husband was screaming at you, your children were NOT sleeping. For their sake and yours, please leave. Your children deserve more than this.

I know this is difficult and you’ve been getting a lot of appropriate and correct advice about leaving this man, but when I saw your comment about you having children I had to say something. You are doing them the biggest disservice possible by remaining with him. I had a father who was horribly abusive, yet extremely charming and beloved by many. My mother was verbally and physically abused by him and never left. She had people who could help her and many knew what was happening (including police, members of our community, etc.). She didn’t leave. She was too afraid. And because of her inaction I suffered for so many years. I suffered in so many ways. Do not do that to your kids. I hate my father, but I hate my mother even more for her inability to leave. I understand it’s hard, but lots of people leave their abusive significant others. Find a supportive community and free your children from the inevitable pain that will happen if you stay with this guy because trust me, he will not change. He will not get better.
I am lucky and I had other peoples’ families and my school and stuff to take care of me, so I grew up just fine. But there is no excuse for parents who don’t put their kids safety first. Don’t be one of those parents.

thisbeehides: I feel really sorry for you. My sister dealt with some and still does very terrible verbal/physical abuse from her sons sperm donor. I truly hope you get some help from this.

Run! ! It’s only going to get worse. Don’t wait for verbal to turn physical.

thisbeehides: OP, how are you?

thisbeehides: Abuse survivor here. Yes, honey he will change. He will get worse, the abuse will get worse and most likely more physical.
Please do some reading and educate yourself on domestic abuse. He is a typical abuser, especially the part about placating you after – he is doing what every abuser does to hang on to their victim. It is easier for him to try to keep you, than to go out and groom a new victim
Find out where the women’s shelters are, keep money aside, and I hope you find the strength to leave this dangerous man before he harms you physically.
What he is doing now is verbal and emotional abuse – no question.

It’s one thing to have an abusive husband, but it is another to allow your children to live in such an environment and possibly think that this kind of behaviour is ok. When they are older they may think it is also ok for THEM to treat you (and their prospective partners) as your husband does. I was going to suggest packing your things and keeping your distance for a while and convincing him to go to anger management and therapy so he can see that he is and has done wrong. But with children involved – Just straight up get out of there!

Please, dear God, get out now! He’s already threatening physical violence by raising his hand at you and hitting things near you, and threatening to break your valuable objects (phone). Please, whatever you do- ante up on your protection when you guys have sex at least until you make a decision about whether or not to stay. I wouldn’t want to decide to leave an abusive boyfriend just to find out I’m pregnant with his kid.
Please don’t stay with him. Reading that was terrifying. Grab enough stuff to stay somewhere else for a week and tell him why you left AFTER you’ve gone so he can’t stop you. See what time does. Maybe he realizes he’s wrong and gets better. Maybe he goes crazy angry because you left and you have your answer.
