My husband and I have had a great day; lunch out and a few drinks. Then had an argument when he threw the remote control at my head and knocked over a drink. Feel like he was goading me in to the argument. Kids witnessed the incident and asked him to stop, now crying and upset.
Is this it? Do I leave? Want to stay in my home.

Seems very melodramatic over a spilt drink. Unless this is a regular occurrence your reaction seems well OTT. Too much drinking in the afternoon or abusive OH is hard to establish from your OP.

Did he do this on purpose or was it an accident?

Did he throw the remote on purpose as a result of your argument or did he throw it and then you had an argument because it hit you?

He threw the remote at your head?

What happened? Thats totally unacceptable.

Why do feel he was goading you? Can you explain more?

Your reaction is not OTT.

He sounds very aggressive and that is not ok.

He threw it at my head deliberately as he didn't agree with me. Was then standing next to me shouting- no space.
I've had such a crappy week at work was stressed and upset yesterday now he's taking the mick saying I can't cope.

May I ask if this was something that happened just once or did something like this happen before?

It's not melodramatic or OTT he threw a remote at her head?!

The fact he deliberately hurt you because you were arguing, did not care that your DC were watching would be enough for me to leave.

No if he deliberately threw anything at you he's an abusive idiot. Is this something he does regularly when faced with an argument?
