In brief: M ost people...

(not just men) do what they can get away with, where they can get away with it.
If there are no consequences to a tantrum at home, that's where it's going to happen.

Maybe they dont want to look like an "ass" at work, but as they are married to you they feel that they can.

In brief: If your husband is

verbally abusive to you & you have children, they are victims of the abuse, as well.
What the guys are saying is that a person only stops throwing tantrums if they are ignored by the consequence of immediate loss of social interaction. If you are the victim of verbal or psychological abuse & are fearful of leaving, call your local Committee to Aid Abused Women for help.
