Dimelo: "Is My Relationship Hurting Me?"

Dear Pauline,

I think I am in a bad relationship and am feeling very depressed. My boyfriend yells at me a lot and breaks up with me after every time we have sex together. I feel I have lost my dignity for him and that I am not a good woman because of this. I have asked him what is going to happen with us and he uses a lot of bad words and yells at me and then tells me is doesn't know what is going to happen with us because he is confused.

He isn't in the mood or he's stressed out or he''s had a long day at work. The rest of our marriage is still going great, but this is upsetting me. I ask him all the time if everything is OK and he always reassures me that nothing is wrong. But I'm wondering....
