Teachers, please help me with the following sentences. 

- Forgive me for everything, for the love I've give to you, for the words of abuses I've yelled at you whenever I was angry. (Is this sentence correct grammatically? Is there any other better way to form this sentence without there's a change in meaning?)

- Actually, I got late, because I had gotten stuck in traffic when I was on my way here. 
Or is it better to say, "Actually, I am late, because I got stuck in traffic when I was on my way here."?

Thank you.

Mr Micawber, thank you very much for your reply!

If you have time, could you please tell me if these sentences are natural and If we can use past simple with past perfect simple this way.

Here're some examples:

- She was angry when her son had gone out without her permission. (Is this way of using past simple with past perfect incorrect? Would it be better if we constructed the sentence as "She was angry because her son had gone out without her permission"?)

- I got married to X in 2000. I had been unemployed when we got married. (is using 'past perfect (had been unemployed)' with 'past simple (we got married) appropriate here? And If it is appropriate, does it mean that 'the state of me being unemployed got over when we got married'?)

Thank you again.
Laborious She was angry when her son had gone out without her permission. (Is this way of using past simple with past perfect incorrect?
If used correctly, it is an odd series of events.
She was angry when her son went out....
LaboriousWould it be better if we constructed the sentence as "She was angry because her son had gone out without her permission"?
Yes.
LaboriousI got married to X in 2000. I had been unemployed when we got married. (is using 'past perfect (had been unemployed)' with 'past simple (we got married) appropriate here?
No.
I got married to X in 2000. I was unemployed when we got married.

Past perfect is called for when there are 2 past events at different times and it is otherwise unclear which happened first.

I was unemployed for over a year when we got married. — Did the unemployment happen before, during or after? Although we can guess, we cannot be sure.
I had been unemployed for over a year when we got married.—This makes it clear which came first.
