In other instances he'll say things like I never got a chance to play the field when I was younger because we started dating so young (22) and that I should be grateful for the life he's given me. I've suggested therapy and he refuses to go. Thoughts? Would you let DH talk to you in front of others like this? WWYD? 20 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I would not - but if you have been together a long time and this is new, then something else is going on. He may be getting in trouble or something at work and taking it out on you, maybe there is someone flirting with him and he is imagining another life (doesn't mean he will act on it, but he may be testing you) or something else. something is playing on his insecurities. Try to get to the root of it. Otherwise, avoid interacting with him in front of family/friends for a few months and see if it blows over. Its not ok, at all, but try to look past the hurt feelings and see whats really going on. If this is new, it will likely blow over. Make sure he knows how you feel, that its hurting you and not appropriate, but that you know him and realize something must be going on. Let him know you will wait it out and try to be understanding if he doesn't want to talk about it. [ Reply | More ]

^^BUT - if this is not a new thing, or it becomes truly abusive, put your foot down. Make sure this does not become habit and should clearly not be modeled to your DC. DH and I went through something like that in year 12 and then it just blew over. It was me, not him. I was going through a lot and taking it out on him. It wasn't fair, but I couldn't help it. Sometime I would hear myself say things and be shocked at what was coming out of my mouth. Like PMS. I realized it and it passed. [ Reply | More ]

This may sound crazy, but don't tell him that this behavior hurts. He is not an idiot. He already KNOWS that it hurts you, which is why he is doing it. He knows that it's a way to get power over you and he probably likes that sense of power and control over you. THe more you tell him it hurts, the more he knows it is pushing your buttons and the more he will do it. He will also try to gaslight you and say that you are overreacting, etc., and try to discount your feelings and say that you're crazy. More justification for him to have the affair (which he is having or is seriously considering having). [ Reply | More ]

Yes or he is seriously considering it with someone in particular (e.g., someone at work). All the hallmarks. My DH's snappiness and criticisms of me increased markedly when he started his affair (unbeknownst to me). Start snooping on his phone, computer, phone records to confirm and keep records of the evidence. Once you have the evidence, don't confront; he'll just cop to only what he thinks you know and lie about the other stuff and take his affair underground even further. Good luck. [ Reply | More ]

^^In any case, even if you don't find any evidence of an affair, I would seriously considering divorce. what he is doing is emotionally abusive to you.

The reason I say divorce him is that this kind of behavior can't really be treated through therapy. Therapy only helps people who are typically too hard on themselves, are depressed. Can't give people a conscience. The few people who do change their behavior only because they realize that the costs outweigh the benefits for them, e.g., if they don't shape up, their wives will leave them and they'll lose a lot of money and that will be really inconvenient, not because they genuinely feel bad about their behavior.

Yep. I am the last person to suspect this sort of thing but I highly suspect an affair in this case. The snappiness is a way of distancing himself from you. Expressing his regret for not playing the field is throwing a flashing neon clue out there--justifying his actions so as not to blindside you when you find out. My money is on an affair.

One data point proves nothing. It's possible that your friend likes the g&t label. [ Reply | More ]

I got the exact same impression, and I toured last year. I also noted a lot of similarities with the charter, which we were considering at the time. Then the TAG pta lady flat out told us that the PTA chair pulled her dc and enrolled at the charter. So weird! [ Reply | More ]

Thanks. It's just my observation. My kid is at neither school so I think my opinion isn't biased even though its just my opinion and nothing else [ Reply | More ]

Although personally if I had to pick UW SA vs TAG I would choose SA so u guess I am biased in a sense that I know how I ranked all my options for myself [ Reply | More ]

ITTA and my dc is at our good zoned gen Ed. We didn't like the district g&t option we got, didn't go to UWSA, and didn't even rank TAG. But UWSA wins over TAG: better location, curriculum, specials. The only thing Better at TAG is that g&t label. Oh, and shorter day if you consider it a plus. [ Reply | More ]

Where is dc now? We are fairly happy at the gen ed, although I'm not all that impressed with the academics. Yet, dc loves school and the community is wonderful. [ Reply | More ]

Dc is finishing 166 g&t this year. We have another dc going into K next year and we will not be getting priority to 166 so we will be looking at all options again [ Reply | More ]

It was a good peer group which is a + and I was thrilled when dc was in K but after that it was just ok. [ Reply | More ]

What grade? I have a bright child who wound up in gen-ed in a similar circumstance (rej from hunter rd 2, didn't like district GT placement). Gen-ed academics seemed weak in K, great in 1st, weak again in 2nd and great in 3rd. Some of it, I have realized, is about the teacher. [ Reply | More ]

I'm the OR with a dc in gen ed with a very similar story (also Hunter R2 reject, didn't like district g&t). Dc is going into 2nd now. I was told it ramps up in 2nd. Was it not the case in your experience? [ Reply | More ]

In our case, 1st was more challenging than 2nd but I really think it was about the teacher (both years). The peer group is generally very good. Not every kid is smart, but enough of them are, and well-behaved. My big issue is with the math - that's where I imagine a district GT may have been stronger. [ Reply | More ]

Yes! Exactly same at 166 but the peer group does help. [ Reply | More ]

It's only a much shorter day if you live very close to TAG (which I'm guessing almost no one on this board does). Otherwise your DC will be getting on a bus at 7am and getting off at 3pm. [ Reply | More ]

I have an older large SUV that I still need on occasion but don't want to drive around for every little thing, so I got a mini cooper witth much better mileage to get around in from day to day on my own. It's a little compact for an every day car, though. For an only non-SUV car I'd look into a hatchback to get something reasonable but still with room [ Reply | More ]

I like a nice beefy sedan. Sit in a few to find a satisfactory level of comfort and features. Also buy a car with wheels at least 16 inches. Smaller wheels look puny [ Reply | More ]
