Whilst having dinner I mentioned my friend was in Benidorm and was shocked by the amount of street prostitution. I said I wouldn't want to be with someone who paid for sex and my husband replied,'I don't pay in the short term but do in the long term '. I'm insulted by this as for 28 years I've paid my way, I don't earn anything like he does but I have always done as much as I can financially and I've brought two daughters up whilst he's worked away and spent weekends drinking. I've always done ALL the household chores to make up for not earning as much as him.
I've taken what he said as an insult but he says he didn't mean anything by it and I'm too sensitive and looking for an excuse to argue? Can anyone give my their opinion please
You husband needs to explain to you why he made that comment and yes, there's plenty of people who will agree with him, just as there's plenty of people who will agree with you. It's matter of opinion. Your reaction to his comment basically tells us that you have other issues within your marriage and you need to talk to your husband about them and why he would insult you personally and disrespect your 28 years of contribution to your marriage, whether he meant anything by it or not.
Hello Daisy Chain,
Don't argue about it. Just tell him you didn't like the comment. You are on your right of not liking it, anyway.
Then, You don't have to do all the household chores to make up for anything. My wife is dedicated to our 2 baby girls and I help her in every way I can. He should do the same.
I don't think he will explain anything, most probably he talked without thinking, but I think he needs to apologize.
He wouldn't be where he is if it wasn't for your hard work!
