Silent Treatment

Has your husband or SO ever given you the silent treatment after an argument? If so, how long does it last and how do you deal?

  • Yes, for a few hours. Sometimes being alone, and silent is the best thing for both of you after an argument. Just don't let the sun go down on your anger. Always make up.

    Anyway no, he doesn't give me the silent treatment, he's not that way.

  • Oh my gosh ! My husband used to do this !!!! The most anoying thing in the world. THANK GOD ,he stopped. I honestly have no clue why he did. I hink if he knew how much it bugged me,he might have kept doing it. Anyhoo.... I pretended like everything was normal. My husband is a talker,so maybe he figured it was hurting him,more than me?

  • I'm usually the one to give the silent treatment, only because I don't like screaming and yelling, and if I feel like doing that, I'd rather not say a damn word. I tell him to leave me alone and let me cool off...and he doesn't like to listen to that, and he pisses me off even more till I do end up exploding and yelling at him.

  • We've never given each other the silent treatment, but we never argue.
    I have given ex boyfriends the silent treatment though lol

  • Yes! We are both horrible about that! We have gone for days without talking. It's gotten way better but in the past it was just like your situation. As soon as one of us says sorry (usually me cuz I get sick of it) the other one says sorry and it's done. I hate that though, try to nip it in the bud because it can destroy your relationship!

  • No. Neither my husband or I use the " silent treatment" as a means to deal with issues/problems in our marriage. We both view the "silent treatment" as being immature, passive aggressive and counter productive.
