You’re married, so you’ve probably already heard some bad things coming out of your husband’s mouth.  

Most likely, he hurt you when he made mean remarks about the way you look, cook, or take care of your children.

While some men simply can’t tell the difference between being honest and being cruel, others decide to humiliate their wives on purpose.

What category does your husband fall into?

The list below will help you figure out if he deliberately belittles you or if he’s insensitive and doesn’t realize it.
