Re: Husband's father died. Now he takes it out on me.
Thank god I came across your post. I'm going through the SAME thing with my husband. We don't have kids yet, so he doesn't have them to take it out on, but my husband's dad died last year and it's been very difficult on me since then. Believe me, I was heartbroken and still am over the loss of his dad. He was a wonderful man and was an amazing father-in-law. So, I don't mean to take away from his pain... but holy ****... he's sure found an outlet for his pain. It's ME! He just wants to get nit-picky with me on EVERYTHING.... and believe me, I know I'm not perfect... and I think I can be honest when I do something that would be annoying... but, I've noticed that he increasingly has started to get made at me for EVERYTHING and I feel like I'm constantly walking on eggshells. The stuff he gets mad at me for is unbelievable and I feel alone. I want to leave at times, too... but I love him and just want my husband back. I have a very demanding and exhausting job and I just want to relax on the weekend... but he's usually mad at me and makes my weekends suck. So, I just wanted to say hang in there... I know it sucks and it's painful, but I believe it's a side effect of the pain they're going through... not that it makes it right for them to take it out on us.
