Re: So disappointed in husband
Happilymarried 67, yes, you're right, I've let this fester too long. His mother used to attack me constantly and he'd just let her. I excused it because it was his mother. His one friend's wife used to bad-mouth me and he never defended me, but I excused it because her husband was my husband's friend and I didn't want to make trouble between the two of them. A guy grabbed me one night (years ago) and my husband made no effort to stop him. He said he didn't see it, but I knew he did. I could go on and on. But you're absolutely right. I've let it fester for years. And now I can't stand the sight of him or the sound of his voice.
I answered the door because I thought this guy was here to apologize or to have a rational conversation to work out our differences, not because I wanted a confrontation. I'm not in the habit of not answering my door. And my husband was right behind me until he saw this guy so HE obviously knew he was here to be nasty. He didn't tell me not to answer the door, or answer the door instead of me. He just left me to deal with him on my own.
