Doesn't sound like a husband worth having.
Sorry I can't really say more, you know that how he reacted was wrong, no matter what lie you told him.

Okay, so you lied about going to this particular venue but there is not justification whatsoever for him hitting you and calling you those names. It is a totally over the top reaction on his part. No woman deserves to be hit regardless of the circumstances. This is domestic violence.

He's been very crafty as well hitting you so as not to leave marks. Such violence oftens escalates into further abuse; you've been verbally abused previously and now its turned physical. It is a very dangerous time for you.
How long has all this been going on?.

Why do you feel you can't you leave him?. My worry also here is that you state you will not leave. Why?. I am assuming a lot here but he has made you too scared to go methinks by grinding you down to almost nothing repeatedly with his threats and behaviours.

Two women each week in the UK are killed at the hands of their partner.

You do need someone to listen, have you heard of Women's Aid?. Will put their phone number up for you.

Jinna - i am sorry to hear you are having such a hard time - you must be very worried and upset. I CANNOT EVER UNDERSTAND a person who hits someone else, however angry, he's obviously got issues he needs to deal with, but you must not allow yourself to be on the end of HIS FRUSTRATIONS - ITS HIS PROBLEM NOT YOURS. I hope you are OK, I shall be keeping an eye on this thread!

i just wanted to know that i am not to blame for his behaviour - sometimes i feeli am the ones whose mad- may not reply tothis thread that often as i do not want him to find it- thankyou for your kind words

well it is a bit nuts to stay with a partner who beats you up. NO ONE deserves that. Since you can't change him, he either has to be wiling to change or ... imho, you should leave him.

you say you have no friends, then who did you go out to the night club with?

the behaviour you describe of your husbasnd is totally unacccetable even towars a dog let aloan a wife!!!

best to get out of there as fast as you can, otherwise when is it going to end? and what will he do next???

Hi Jinna, you might think that this all sounds over the top and that he really isn't that bad but believe me you only realise how bad they are ubtil you have left them. I was in the same situation as you about 5 years ago, and as i said i didn't realise how awful it was until after I had left him. It isn't just the physical abuse that hurts so much (even if he didn't mark you) but the emotional abuse by calling you horrific names. Nobody deserves that I wouldn't even talk to my dog like that let alone my partner. You probably didn't lie he just has selective memory syndrome, you have a right to a life, a right to be respected and a right to be protected. Please get some help that is what these organisations are here for. I wasted 6 years of my life on someone like this, the first two were ok but after that each one grew progressivly worse. You WILL wake up one day and just won't want to live like that anymore I can only hope for your sake that it is sooner rather than later. I did and I am now in a fantastic relationship with two beautiful children.
Goodluck, please let us know how you are getting on through this thread.

Apart from this incident (which is inexcusable), how are things generally?

Can you visualise a time when you will be happy with the way your husband treats you and you feel content and valued in your relationship?

Can I ask why you have said you cannot and wont leave him?

If you have no friends who were you out with at the club? I bet you do have friends!

I am sorry that you are unhappy and hope you find peace soon.
