I love my husband, even though he cheats and ridicules me in public | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: EVEN though my husband has had multiple affairs and ridicules me in front of his friends, I still love him.

He says it’s my fault he keeps leaving me for other women because I’m impossible to live with.

We’ve been married for 20 years. I’m 48 and he’s 51.

I try so hard to make him happy but he gets angry very easily and shouts and calls me names.

If I do something he doesn’t like – like question where he’s been because I find it hard to trust him now – it leads to an argument and he’ll walk out.

Sometimes he’ll even block me on his phone and I won’t hear from him for weeks.

Then he’ll come home as if nothing has happened.

I’ve always been a good wife, but nothing I do is enough.

He puts me down and laughs at my appearance – sometimes in front of family and friends.

When I get upset, he tells me I’m being oversensitive and he was only joking.

I want us to be happy and grow old together, so I really want to improve our marriage.

What can I do?

DEIDRE SAYS:  This man isn’t worthy of your love. You deserve much better.

He has cheated on you repeatedly, treats you cruelly, humiliates you and gaslights you, twisting everything to make it seem like you’re the one at fault.

The truth is, he is not a loving husband. He is abusive.

Not all abuse is physical. It can be emotional too.

My support pack, Abusive Partner, explains more about this kind of relationship.
