Whenever my husband says, “I love you more than baby”, I would reply with the same words. However, I know that deep down, I love my only child more. From the various relationship-advice stories I have read, I learnt I should love my husband more, and that our relationship is vital to provide our child with a stable and happy environment. However, I can’t help how I feel and I believe it is his fault that I feel this way.

My husband has always had a quick temper. I attribute that to his upbringing and him being an only child. Before our kid came along, he would almost always threaten me with divorce whenever we get into a heated argument, which happens about twice a month. He would then apologise profusely after he has cooled down, and added that he didn’t mean what he said.

I had told him time and again that I do not appreciate his threats as they hurt me deeply. It was traumatic to hear the word “divorce” as newly-weds. You are supposed to be my partner, it’s us against the world, so how could you say that to me? Didn’t we vow to love each other forever?
