My husband swears every few months such as f*cking marriage, f*cking dinner, for f*ck sake. This this normal?

GobbySadcase Sun 30-Jun-13 12:10:40

Is in my house...

sagfold Sun 30-Jun-13 12:14:02

Every few mins would be normal in mine

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 30-Jun-13 12:59:06

Every few months?

That's pretty restrained.

picnicbasketcase Sun 30-Jun-13 13:01:28

Is it the swear words that are the problem, or the sentiment behind them?

usualsuspect Sun 30-Jun-13 13:01:55

What a fucker he is.

purplemurple1 Sun 30-Jun-13 13:02:51

Mines about the same, so I hope so.

When it gets more/ or it starts to annoy me I ask him to tone it down and he does. If it bothers you could you not just ask him to try not to swear in the house/in front of you?

catgirl1976 Sun 30-Jun-13 13:03:51

Mine swears every couple of words

I suppose the context / inflection is more pertinent than the words?

TheRealFellatio Sun 30-Jun-13 13:04:27

My husband swore every few months when he met me. Now he swears every few days.

I swear every few minutes hours.

elQuintoConyo Sun 30-Jun-13 13:06:42

Does he actually say f-starring marriage, f-starring-dinner, for f-starsake ? Sounds very restrained to me.
Is he a kind of See You Next Tuesday kinda man?

Buzzardbird Sun 30-Jun-13 14:16:08

Yabu...or Yanbu. Not sure which. hmm

whereaboutinlondon Sun 30-Jun-13 15:56:39

When we were fighting over dinner he said f*cking dinner and I asked him to apologise for swearing and he wouldnt.

Clargo55 Sun 30-Jun-13 15:59:48

Fighting about dinner? What happened?

Think you need to add more context. A lot of people swear, it depends in which circumstance.

amigababy Sun 30-Jun-13 16:08:12

YANBU. wouldn't happen here, from me never, from him only at football if severely tested by events on the pitch.

CrowsLanding Sun 30-Jun-13 16:10:12

Every few months? shock

ChippingInWiredOnCoffee Sun 30-Jun-13 16:10:47

I wouldn't either. I'm an adult - if I choose to swear that's my business. You'd love living with me NOT.

If it's the swearing that's bothering you, you just need to get over it.

If it's the sentiment behind it (ie fucking marriage - the marriage is a problem) then deal with that, but don't tell a grown man he can't swear.

BitBewildered Sun 30-Jun-13 16:14:51

I swear. I wouldn't apologise for swearing. YABVU.

insancerre Sun 30-Jun-13 16:18:00

you asked him to apologise for swearing?
are you his mother?
shock

Tweasels Sun 30-Jun-13 16:22:56

He fucked the dinner?

whereaboutinlondon Sun 30-Jun-13 16:24:56

He cooked dinner and made the table put dishes. I came across the hob hob was still turned on. I told him this is the second time he forgot turning off the hob in a few weeks. He said he was still cooking and was busy to move floweres on the dinner table and put dishes in time. I said that is no excuse to turn off the hob and safety should be no.1 priority. So we were having an argument for 5 minutes and and he suddenly moved his plate to the coffee table not to eat with me and said something (I dont remember what he was exactly said) including f*cking dinner.

insancerre Sun 30-Jun-13 16:26:16

divorce the fucking bastard

ChippingInWiredOnCoffee Sun 30-Jun-13 16:26:34

It doesn't sound like the swearing is your biggest problem.

Is English your second language?

CrowsLanding Sun 30-Jun-13 16:27:06

Leave the bastard. Just tell him you want a fucking divorce grin

PelvicFloorClenchReminder Sun 30-Jun-13 16:28:20

I am so fucking confused.

usualsuspect Sun 30-Jun-13 16:29:59

Did he say'cook your own fucking dinner'
