  • My husband NEVER has trouble sleeping! Ugh! But, he always makes a point to tell me he loves before he drops off, no matter how mad we are at each other. Same with angry phone conveersations.

  • This is when you need to do something to him while he's asleep!!! Tickle his nose with your hair & watch him squirm, fart & then fan the covers to where he will have to smell it, etc.! LOL

  • Guys tend not to think about things the same way we do. They don't dwell on problems, the lucky bastards!

  • If he is just listening and listening and listening , then where is the fight. Maybe instead of lecturing your feelings at him which quickly overwhelms men, and puts them in shut down mode, ask more open ended questions. Then listen listen listen. It is worth a try. Unless you get the I don't know, or i haven't thought about that answer. Then go for the shins!!!

  • My husband is the one who stresses out and is up for hours, drives him crazy that I am calm enough to sleep. I know it's better to "sleep it off"...otherwise we'll both be up for hours arguing it to death. I am a very, very calm stress-free person, and I know he can't understand that I can sleep. To me, it's like smoking or drinking, I can escape the bad argument by going to sleep.

    Once in a while, though, I get too worked up and frustrated and have to hash it all out, or least try to have angry/make-up sex! Then we can both sleep! :)
