  • Married close to 19 yrs and that never came up. I guess I feel he's entitled to my opinion if I'm upset with him LOL

  • I usually get silent when I'm mad, but always the first to speak about it when I calm down.

  • Me! I wish I could make the silent treatment work, but when hes being quiet to (probably just enjoying the silence!), all of these questions and statements just BURN inside of me! How dare he give ME the silent treatment, I am obviously right, and I must tell him all about it!! LOL

  • Neither of us because we don't use the silent treatment with each other. It seems pointless and a waste of time to me, and it seems like it could cause more problems if you're already arguing. if we get into the heat of the moment, i'm usually the one that says stop and lets take a few minutes apart to cool down and thing about what we're arguing about. usually after a half hour or so we've both thought about it and we're more able to compromise and be civil with each other.

  • We don't do the silent treatment. It doesn't accomplish anything and only breeds feelings of anger and resentment.
