My husband...The verbal abuser
He has always done this, but I shrugged it off and payed no attention to him, lately he seems to be getting worse, and I worry as we have a 5 month old, he also has a terrible temper and screams and shouts, i have asked him many, many times to try to control his language, but he won't lisen. I am so worrid my son is going to grow up in an environment where he thinks it's ok to swear and curse, also a lot of fighting. My husband would never lay a hand on me though, and I know he does love me, but he has really become a horrible person to be around.

We have NO sex life, he always wants, I am NOT interested, do you think it is something mental that could be causing my disinterest?

Your son will have the chance to learn from you, that such swearing is a bad and immature thing to do, and won't necessarily follow his dad's bad behaviour patterns. And he can hardly be surprised that you don't feel like sex with an angry and swearing partner. Any chance of him accepting personal counselling, or marriage counselling with you ?
