I personally believe it is dh's responsibility to defend you.

Your dh shouldn't go - he should support you. How could he chat to someone that had verbally abused you??? If this person apologised to you then the situation could be different.

I don't understand why your dh would want to go to this person's party after they had abused you like that. I'd be seriously p*ssed off tbh.

WTF? Why is this even an issue? If someone did this to my husband I would have immediately blocked them from contacting me at all, much less considered going to their friggin' party!

Go ahead and show him this thread. Real friends don't verbally abuse your family. Ever.

in that case then, stuff him and your Dh should stand by you as this man made you cried

why, can I ask is he your dh's friend?.. he sounds awful.

Argue your point!

The "I'll never see my friends again" argument is pretty pathetic. The situation is that you'd like him, and he should also think this way, to see all of his friends, with the exception of this one. You are not stopping him seeing his friends, just that one.

So, he misses a party, so what ! He may miss a few other events too, so what ?

Why can't your DH take control of the situation and organise his own social events, obviously not inviting the one person who insulted you. That way he doesn't miss out. Surely, even if they don't want "to get involved", the other friends should still be able to understand and respect his stance in excluding / not wanting to socialise with this jerk any longer ??

I'd certainly feel very very hurt and betrayed if someone insulted me and my DP chatted to them like nothing happened. Do you feel able to tell us what happened ?

Until he apologises to YOU then your DH should defend your honour, this includes not going to said party with or without you.
