Tension builds up on varying issues for a week or two.  Nothing gets resolved.  Finally something happens and you and your husband explode at each other (we waited until the kids were in bed).  Fierce arguing (shouting, big gestures, mean things said) then calm discussion, apologies, sex, then go to sleep.

I went from yesterday being a horrifically bad day.  Then that evening we have this huge fight.  Only the 2nd time we've ever fought like that in 6 years.  Now today it's like 1,000 percent better.  We are going to work out some things on Tuesday when we can get a sitter and get some real quality time, but we both seem much better.

So, have you and your hubby EXPLODED at each other, then calmed down, had sex, and went on your way?

We've never had a fight like that. I don't think we've ever even raised our voices to each other.

 Nope. We have gotten more angry with each other than we really should have, but never an explosion. For the most part, when one or the other (or both) is angry, we end up taking some time alone. I don't know what he does, but I gather my thoughts. I think about what specifically made me upset and why, so that when we do calm down, we can discuss it civilly. 95% of the time, we have our "fights" resolved within minutes without ever actually having fought. And while we may have had sex after resolving an issue, it's not WHY we have the sex.

In 6 years it's happened exactly twice where we raised our voices like this. This time it was a perfect storm that led up to it. One of those Murphey's Law days where "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong" and both of us were at our limit. I don't know what 6 years divided by two fights is, but I'm thinking we have a pretty healthy relationship. I guess I'm mostly asking to see if even the best marriages sometimes just have those ugly moments.

We don't really have explosive fights. We have small little arguments. Usually we just walk away and think about it then come back and whoever was wrong, will apologize. 

It's usually him though, just sayin'

We are usually super Dr Phil type healthy about our fights.  This one was just absurd and difficult.  We didn't have sex *because* we fought, we had sex because we'd fought over some tough issues we'd not dealth with, then worked them out, and were connected by it. 


The experience just hasn't happened a lot and I wasn't sure if we were normal or more abnormal.  Apparently, this sort of thing isn't as strange as I thought it was.

LOL!  We had this fight just as we were getting into bed for the night.  We sleep naked so we were having this fight naked.  There was some comedian that had referenced how unfair it is to fight with your husband naked because it confuses his heads.  "Both want to FU, but in completely different ways.  It's unfair."

Honestly we have really only been in one big argument, and it was before we married. Dh and I hardly ever even raise our voice at each other. Sure we annoy the piss out of each other sometimes though lol
