When you fight, Do you threaten Divorce??

In all of our almost 12 yrs of marriage, I have done that once. And he called his employee crisis line and got us into marriage counselling. Basically it was someone that mediated our arguement, I highly recommend it!! Anyhow, My sister cries and says she wants a divorce Everytime they fight. It is silly cause he doesn't believe her anymore....... So, Do you yell, " I want a Divorce" during your arguements?

  • No, but I do say I want him to go away. I do need my space.

  • No, I don't think that is a threat that needs made. I would never say it unless I meant it.

  • Nope..

    Not during our 25 years of marriage has that happened. When he was drinking, when he had a one night stand, when I was emotionally abusive.. I could go on and on.. lots of things can happen over the span of 25 years (good & ................... Neither one of us ever threatened divorce just because we were angry and fighting. We've never threatened. Even when I made him move out, I didn't make threats or say things that I didn't mean or wasn't willing to back up.

  • We have spoken about it but no I don't yell I want a divorce. I do let him know that if I find out he has crossed a boundary I will file for divorce.

  • In the begining of our marriage we fought a lot, and were both genuinly unhappy. I did say it multiple times, but then it finally hit me that I needed to decide whether we were going to make it work or not. I decided I would stop allowing the idea of divorce into my head let alone say it, and now years later we are genuinly happily married. Its a very damaging thing to say in a marriage.
