Arguing with husband
21 replies 5.4K views
I know there is alot going on at the moment, so this feels a little stupid really, but its really upset me, so anyway, it was hubbys birthday today, his parents rang him to wish him happy birthday, i was out of the room, so i came back in halfway through the conversation, his mum asked if i was cooking him anything special, before he could answer she then says and pigs might fly!!. Hubby just agrees with her. I was absolutely gutted that she could say such a nasty remark about me. We have been married for nearly 11 years, in that time she has never liked me. I have always tried to buy presents and cards from the kids. Anyway, when he got off the phone i said that was a bit of a nasty comment to make, hubby started sticking up for her saying she didn't mean it. I went out of the room to calm down but it wound me up even more tbh, i came back in and said that she was a xxxxxxx bxxxx to say what she did. That was it hubby started arguing with me saying i was out of order, and i shouldn't have been listening to his conversation!! And that i should apologise! I am fuming that he didnt say anything back to his mother tbh, its gone so far now that he is leaving me and the kids tomorrow. If this was the other way round, and it was my family, i wouldn't have got annoyed by him calling my mum that, but tbh i would have stuck up for him in the beginning. He is 49, and we have 2 kids together.
