Is there more to this than just this post? Why does your husband hate your daughter? Why is she not allowed to go to your house? What was their relationship like before you married?

That aside, his violence is very worrying, and if I were you I would be worried about my safety.

If he reacts like that over petty things, imagine what it will be like when it's something average or big.

Ask yourself, do you really want to be around......and especially WITH someone like this.

I wouldn't even want to be around them......forget about WITH them.

Your husband is being unreasonable. You should spend time with your family, have lunch with them etc

Him breaking things and calling you names is abusive.

Why are you with someone who would do this to you?

I was thinking the same thing. What exactly was the verbal altercation about between daughter and husband? Is an apology in order from the grown daughter to your husband, or was the husband out of line with the daughter?

There is some expectation for the spouse to believe that they are "Number 1" in their partner's life. Usually there is acceptance of the partner's children and the blending of family, but this husband shows rage in regards to the daughter, so perhaps the original altercation should be revisited.

No adult should have to "sneak" to see their own children or to carry on that parent/child relationship.

Let me guess, you cook, clean, give him all the physical intimacy he could ever want, you look great and treat him phenomenal?

Why Why WHY do women like you end up with men like this. WTF is wrong with this warped world.

A loving husband would be supportive of your desire and NEED to spend time with your children and grandchildren, other relatives and friends.

He sounds extremely possessive and jealous and his breaking things, yelling and calling you names is abusive.

To me, an outsider - it's a no-brainer, easy decision. I would move out and live with my daughter over living with a man like this. I would not tolerate a man's attempts to isolate me from my family. I would not bend to his intimidation attempts.

The minute you pulled up in the driveway to find he was in a rage and destroying the garage, you should have called the cops. People do what you allow and by submitting to him, you are allowing yourself to be isolated and abused.

It WAS Mother's Day yesterday. You had every right to enjoy time spent with your daughter and grandchildren - that's what that day is about. Your husband's behaviour was unreasonable.

Just because he doesn't like your daughter, doesn't mean you can't continue a relationship with her. I have people in my own family that I don't speak to. Others continue to have relationships with those people and I support it - I just don't want to be involved. They also support and understand my reasons for not interracting with those select few and no loyalties are ever divided.

Your husband doesn't have to be your daughter's friend but he has NO RIGHT to stop you from being her mother.

Please provide more info on the verbal spat and if it was warranted. Because if your daughter did something wrong you are wrong for taking her side. If she didnt your husband is wrong...however both are adults and should come to some type of agreement for you. Additionally remember your daughter is your child not your friend and if you are putting her needs first especially as since she is an adult I can see why your husband is pissed. He should not be violent but he should be pissed

Wow. It doesn't matter at all what has happened between your daughter and him, he has no right at all to react this way to your spending time with your daughter. you on on your way to being in a highly abusive relationship, you are about there now. The longer you stay, you continue sending him the message that his behavior is acceptable. Has he broken your belongings? That is a classic sign of someone that actually desires to strike you or your daughter.

You just answered your own question and I think it's a good idea but........................what was the verbal spat they had? It can make a big difference but his violence is something to be worried about and if it continues, you better make some plans before it gets worse.

I'm so sorry you're going through this with your husband. I imagine this has all been very unsettling for you. His behavior is very unhealthy. Stepping out of your daughter's life so he can "have you all to himself" is just absurd. Obviously, that's not gonna happen.

Still, in spite of his actions, you stated that you love him and you want this marriage to work. In order for you guys to move to a healthy place in marriage, he is going to have to agree that he has a problem and he needs help to fix it. He needs counseling.

Like others, I am curious to know more of the back story here. It seems like you guys got married awfully quickly. Has he been married before?

As others have said, your husband is out of line. His breaking things, destroying the garage, yelling and carry on as he does is violent abuse. When an abuser breaks things in anger, the message is that next time it might be you that he physically attacks. The purpose of this kind of outbreak is to put fear in you and control you.

What he is doing with your daughter is that he is trying to isolate you from all support so that he can have more control over you.

He did this yesterday? Do not clean up or fix anything. Call the police and report what he did. With the level of violence you describe you can ask them to permanently remove him from the home and get a restraining order so that he cannot come near you.

Who owns the house you are in?

If the house belongs to him. You can use that restraining order to take the time to find a new place to live and get your stuff out. If you can stay with your daughter for a few days, that's could be even better.

If he house is yours, get help to pack all this things and put them in storage. Have someone give him the key. You don't go anywhere near him.

You have to end this relationship, it's only going to get worse.

You said you want advice.

You met this man one year ago, so this is a new marriage.

I'm sorry dear; you made a HUGE mistake marrying him. Best to leave now before your daughter & grands want nothing more to do with you.
I am so glad you brought this up! Is he worth losing you family over?

Without knowing the rest of the story (husbands version) this sounds similar to a situation I was in.

Several years before my X and I were married she had made a casual remark that she never intended to marry again and that all she wanted to do was finish raising her daughter, work the job she was in, and wait for her daughter to bring her grandchildren (missed that red flag). In less than a year of marriage events unfolded that brought me back to what my X had said a few years earlier and I realized that I was regarded as a husband in name only, everything revolved primarily around her daughter then after her daughter was married it was all about her daughter and grandchildren.

There is a hierarchy of relationships, a pyramid if you will. My X, her daughter and grandchildren filled the top spot and my X's need for affection and attention were fulfilled by them hence very infrequent sex and no spontaneous acts of affection or intimacy with me on any level. I floated somewhere out on the periphery several rungs down. After a couple years of marriage it was like living with my sister or having a boarder in the house. She was quite content with the environment but to me it was just empty. I never got angry like your husband though.

Just curious...... how many times a day do you talk to your daughter on the phone or text?

Do you see your daughter every day?

Is your daughter married?

Were/are you a helicopter mom (no offense intended)?
