QUESTION The fact that I even have to ask is sign enough. I want to ask both from your’s and your wife’s perspective. Do you think that I am in an emotionally abusive relationship?
A little background: His fuse is just so short. He talks to me like I’m a dog. I literally want to bug our house and play it back to him so he can realize how disrespectful he really is. I do love him and I don’t want to leave, but at this point, I cannot stand him and I hate what we’re doing to our kids. Yes, I realize I’m part of this too, but I am his cheerleader, his friend, his rock, everything. I’m so tired of being the emotional support for everyone and then getting shit on in return. I’m burned out myself. Please help my family.
