“Is that what you’re going to wear to the wedding?” said Sarah to her husband Jack.
Jack looked down at his suit, now embarrassed. He was already stressed about going to the wedding with the group who’d be there. Social events like this made him anxious. Sarah knew that. “Is there something wrong with my outfit?”

Types of Verbal Abuse
Verbal Abuse Disguised as a Joke
When my husband says things like this, he’s really telling me that he loves putting me down because it makes him feel good. He can say whatever he wants because he is “just being funny” when he says it, but I look like I don’t know how to take a joke. He is in control. Everyone laughs, don’t they? He couldn’t really mean it, could he?
He makes comments about you in front of friends that mock or belittle you. He conceals his acrimony with a smug grin and laughter. His public ridicule is unexpected, it throws you off balance and it embarrasses and humiliates you. Your friends may laugh at his wisecracks but your heart felt the jab and your brain struggles to interpret the true meaning of his put-down. If you show shock or displeasure he may patronize you with a hug and tell you he was only “kidding.” He maintains his good guy facade and your friends wonder why you are overly emotional about a mindless joke.
