Haven't really spoken much to DH in the last couple of days. Don't really want to get into reasons why, but let's just say he's wrong. He's made no attempts at correcting the problem either. So wondering how long do you guys let things go in silence before you finally talk it out?

Depends on the problem and how it impacts me or our marriage. I don't like to leave things unsaid, so even when it's hard I have to communicate my feelings. I usually need to collect my thoughts when I am angry so that I don't say something I will regret. I only take a few hours to do that, at least if I am so angry or hurt that I need more time I still will communicate. I find the silent treatment as an immature manipulation. DH is a communicator and gets bothered when I don't want to talk immediately when I am still angry, so I don't get the silent treatment from him. I have explained why I need a cooling off period and he understands that, but our basic agreement is that communication is necessary. The silent treatment wouldn't fly in our home.
