I would first make an appointment with your husband's doctor, we could always tell when my dad had a UTI because he became very aggressive and paranoid. Sometimes the agression is related to pain or illness. Does he only become agressive in certain situations or with certain people? Above all else make sure you are safe and have a plan in place for the time when you are not.

Is he on any new medications? Even over the counter cold pills can make a difference in mood.
