Worst remarks from Husband: How to fix things in your marriage 

Despite the extensive list of worst things a husband can say listed in the above article, it is not exhaustive.

There are many other ways to say the worst things a husband can say to his wife but the bottom line is that they are derogatory remarks that could leave scars in her heart because every word has meaning behind it.

If you have hurt your wife with any of these words, the first leap for reconciliation is to genuinely apologize and try to make things right.

In addition, talk to her about it and make sure it doesn’t happen again. She will be willing to forgive you. 

If you are reading this as a wife and currently ruminating on a hurting statement your husband said to you, then you should be focused on healing from the words.

First, acknowledge your feelings and tell your spouse how you feel about the remark. Then listen to what he says attentively and consider the situation from his perspective. If he genuinely shows remorse, consider forgiving him.

We are humans and we are not perfect. Sometimes, emotions get the best part of us and we use hurtful words to express ourselves

After forgiving him, I’d encourage you to Focus on improving your self-worth, self-esteem, and self-love.

If it’s a whole lot to process and deal with, or he keeps using these derogatory remarks in every situation, consider talking to a relationship coach or therapist before making any major decision about the relationship.

  1. I think this ought to have a newer title.
    “Negative phrases that a spouse or comitted partner can say to the other.”

    I don’t think any of this only happens one way, it can also go from wife to husband and it needs to be updated for same sex couples, its 2023.
    As the conclusion says, we are all human and so we ar humans interacting with otherhumans , not just a “wife and a man”
