@ the poster,

do you have a job?
Does he have a job?
Who earns more?
Can you sustain yourself financially
Do you have children?
Did you have an abusive father growing up?
Do you have a trusted friend or relative who can be a confidant?


I await your answers so I can advise you better


You teach people how to treat you,while his behavior is inexcusable,I want to also know what about you makes this abuse tolerable for 5 long years and counting
You need to do something differently,that is the only way this will stop.

this one na serious case o, i think its beyond what i can say anything about again.
Well, thank God you have your job and you are not dependent on him, just move on with your life as you have decided, and of course d enviroment is not good for the children's psychology at all, therefore, think about it very well, i cant imagine myself in this mess, im more valuable than this and i wouldnt allow anyone, not even my hubby to reduce me to nothing......haba, is it a crime to be married?...anyway i wish you what you wish yourself.
May God help us all.

Thanks for responding.
First of all let me start by letting you know that your posts here portray you as a woman with a good heart who has been taken advantage of
You have also done the right thing by deciding that this nonsense has to end.

I had long talks into the midnight with my mom weeks to my wedding.Many of what she said I took as gospel
She had Been married to my father for 25 years so I figured she knew a thing or two about marriage
She looked me in the eyes and told me to love my husband and she added that once I start that journey of marriage I should from day one decide what I can and cannot condone and that whatever things I know will be difficult to sustain,I shouldn't even start.
Of all the hours of talks,those two sentences have stuck with me for years.
She gave me an example how she always washed my daddy's clothes in the earlier years of marriage And when the kids came,she was now washing hers,ours and his plus all the housework and it was draining her.The day he complained a shirt was not washed properly,she decided he should wash his clothes from then on andthat was the biggest fight they had but from then on,he started washing his clothes.
I soaked everything in,because that was wisdom talking.

Nobody has any right to torture you emotionally like this husband of yours has done
He obviously has a poor upbringing and maybe saw his father treat his mother with disdain and she sat like a docile mat or maybe you saw your father abuse your mother,I don't know.
You have made your mistakes,now is the time to correct the wrongs
I am a marriage advocate and I think divorce should be the last resort after all avenues have been explored especially where kids are involved.
He needs to submit himself to marriage counseling.If I were you that is the condition I would give .A series of sessions to get to the root of his ugly behavior
His refusal is a sign that he doesn't value you and is not ready for change,The marriage is as good as dead,you don't need to be there a minute longer.

I am glad you have a job and can sustain yourself,this is the reason I never advise anyone to be a housewife.
Besides the spitting and breaking Things ,does he beat you up too?
Has he ever slapped,hit,kicked or thrown an object at you?
If the answer to any of the above is yes,forget about the counseling and everything I said,pack your things and get out.That will be my advise if you were my younger sister.it only gets worse from there.

Cemeteries are full of women who stayed and were beaten or stabbed to death

Please don't let him know when you are about to leave if you do decide to leave. Many of these violent men turn into worse monsters when they perceive that..if he gets that angry,he is capable of anything.Be wise,get a restraining order if need be.

Preach this loud and clear. Anyone who chose to be a housewife is setting herself up for a life of physical and emotional abuse

Baby_mama,

God bless your mom for this piece of advice. I think every intending bride should have this discussion with her mother. So many ladies go into this union without the slightest idea of what to do when faced with marital challenges.

I've learnt so many things from my mom, my parent marriages, my Uncles and Aunts marriages, from those here and so on. So when I get there, I know how and what to do.

Nobody should be a doormat to anyone whether male/female. Everyone deserves respect no what their level/rank, age, circumstances of their birth, their origin etc.

@ tarababy,I still pray your husband chooses counseling over anything else,I hate divorces but sometimes it is the only option left.
Divorce is not an easy road and is no decision to get into unprepared because once the wheel of divorce turns,it is difficult to stop it.
I have seen friends go through divorce and it is no piece of cake but if you are sure this is your only alternative left then that is it
You can't make a man love you enough to respect you and your feelings
Your love for yourself and demand to be treated with dignity should trump the desire to stay married for marriage sake
Sometimes divorce is not the only but the best alternative.
I pray God will help you and guide you make the best decision for you.
Watch the counsel you get too and surround yourself with people who genuinely care and are supportive whatever you choose to do.

My dear,I often tell my younger friends that I need to write a book on marriage
Sometimes my words are misconstrued as man bashing but it is not,I just don't know how to be politically correct,I say it like it is
I am a full blooded heterosexual and married and raising children with the same man for over a decade now ,I love men grin
My marriage is not perfect ,none is but I am happy and contented and I learn from the mistakes of others as well as mine

Men are like babies cheesy
They want to know how much they can get away with but the woman has to teach him what the boundaries are
Our men are tough,look at Coogar,does he look like an easy nut to crack? grin
If given the chance,Everyman can be controlling to the tune of abuse,every single one of them
It is in their nature to control ,but a woman can direct where that control should end

If this woman read him the riot act the first time he allowed his saliva flow in her direction,he would have understood it and shaped up
She allowed it and other destructive behavior continue for 5 years to the extent that he sees it as nothing and goes on throwing tantrums like a spoiled brat


I have a friend that worked her fingers to the bone and deposited her money into a joint account that her husband controlled
And he gave her pocket money out of the account shocked shocked shocked shocked
In this America o
All in the name of joined together at the altar,one Nigeria grin
Tufiakwa
The day he ended the marriage she was left empty handed and came crying to my house
People are shocked when I tell them I don't do joint accounts of my earnings,never did
My mother didn't either and they are married for decades.

I am glad this poster has an earning capacity,I hope she has equal access to the earnings if they are doing joint
Many women stay in dead end marriages because they are financially dependent on the man
No woman should ever be in that position IMHO

Baby_Mama,

I agree with you on the joint account thing. I personally don't like/share in the idea. I also have a right to my privacy and things, so does he too. For me, married couple have a right to their privacy.

If we need to do things together, we will gather our resources together for that but to operate a joint account? Mbanu! Never like it and no amount of convincing will make me do it.

I just asked my momsy if she liked the idea and she said NO!

@op being spit on is quite disgusting i agree but its not worth loosing your home over. am surprised he even finds you appealling enough to put his mouth in your kitty which I personally consider a far more disgusting behaviour.
half the ladies here dont enjoy that "priviledge" and a quarter of them would kill for it.
its obvious he doesnt physically abuse you so the only danger you are up against is emotional. since your life is not at risk why dont you work harder at helping him overcome his weakness?
You are his wife and that is your job. you are quitting this marriage prematurely trust me married peeps on here are putting up with worse.

I'm sorry but this post confuses the heck out of me.

If her leaving now will make no difference to him, then why stay? If he won't care whether she leaves or stays then what's the real benefit to her of staying?

Actually, spitting on him back has helped in my opinion. If he wasn't at all moved by the fact that she spat back and saw it as nothing then it suggests to me that he truly (for whatever weird a*ss reason) doesn't attach a lot of significance to the act of spitting on her. He simply does not see it as something very bad or disgusting or demeaning. It's just his reflex response to his annoyance at that point and it doesn't appear to go beyond that. (Perhaps, I may be wrong, but this is how I interpret what happened) I think it puts the OP in a better position to potentially save the marriage since her main concern is the spitting. She does not seem to be as concerned about all the other crazy things he does as much as the spitting bothers her. Now she knows that he really does not attach any deeper meaning to the act of spitting on her. I say she still needs to do something to shock him back to reality. Separating from him temporarily till he understands the gravity of the situation would be a start, since he has refused to go for counseling.

What do you mean 'earn respect'? Does any human being need to earn the liberty not to be spat on repeatedly by their spouse? There is no marriage without disagreements and she can't turn into a zombie just to coddle an overgrown baby. He is the one that needs to respect himself and handle disagreements maturely. Not everyone has the personality patience to do what you had previously recommended for her. Basically you want her to go around lying that she agrees to anything he says just to avoid arguments and not actually doing them. Is he a r*etard?

Re: My Husband Spits On My Face During Quarrels by babymama3: 4:05pm On Dec 29, 2012
Winneygirl: @OP, pls go back and read my earlier post. U're doing thngs wrong. 4him 2spit on U,it means U engaged in an arguement wt him.
Pls dnt!!
If U leave now,it makes no differenc 2him.
Spitting on him in return did nt help U lik U noticed.
U ar d change He needs.
He didnt wake up and start throwing a tantrum. Somethn prompted him, and U let it blow up by trying 2have Ur way wt words....
U want respect? U will have 2 earn it d right way. Arguing wt him, spitting on him, only shows dats U have truly reduced Urself 2 d doormat dat He has been trying 2 reduce U to.

I wish U'd respond 2 me so I knw dat U read my posts.



Excuse you!!!! shocked shocked shocked shocked


OP please totally ignore this post above
There is nothing in here of benefit to you,your present predicament or any abused woman
This is a post that will gladden no other hearts but the likes of your abuser who sees you as the cause of his shortcomings
The mentality of you needing fixing
You were not created to change anyone especially one that does not care about change
If you have friends telling you things like this in real life,dump them
You are the victim and not the reason for his uncultured ways
He needs the help not you
The only help you need is a reassurance that seeking a means to start 2013 free from abuse is right
You deserve to be treated with dignity
You deserve to raise your children in a healthy environment
You deserve not to be spat on and emotionally tortured
If he is willing to seek counsel to help his demons,work with him but if he is not,you walk while you are still alive.his next act of violence could spell death
The burden to change is on him not you
Don't let anyone guilt you into anything like the post above attempts.
Look yourself in the mirror and tell yourself that you deserve and demand to be treated right and a deranged,violent, property damaging ,terrorizing,spitting cobra with killer instincts is not the will of God for your life
