Re: Wife Calls Me Names
I'm not sure why you think you should deserve this kind of treatment. No one deserves to be called names and treated disrespectfully.
You don't have to tolerate it. Simply hold up your hand in a 'stop' gesture, say in a calm, confident voice "I realize you are upset now. We can talk later after you've calmed down and can talk respectfully.", walk away (out the door for a while if you need to), and simply lather, rinse, repeat. Practice doing it on your own in front of a mirror, and then consistently implement.
