Space, then talk.  Usually followed by compromises on both sides or a completely new solution to the problem.

We're really in sync with each other. I honestly can't remember the last disagreement we had. Maybe when to have kids, but I cried and he caved, lol.

Seriously though, we talk it out. If we do it right then or wait a bit depends. Are we at home, are we both feeling too heated to discuss it rationally, that sort of thing. But it is very rare that we have disagreements.

I have a history of saying "fuck it" and leaving. I am better off by myself.

I cannot stand letting things fester.  I need to resolve it NOW.  It works for us, because I cannot focus on anything else when something isn't right between me and my husband. 

We don't fight much anyway.  Been married to long

Other.  It really depends on what the problem is.  Some things need to be hashed out immediately, some can wait for a cooling off period.

 His motto is "A happy wife, a happy life". We usually discuss everything together. Honestly, I think he is afraid of me. lol. I have never done anything to him. I just have "the look", all I have to do is look at my children and husband and they scatter. lol

We've been married too long and don't really fight. If we disagree, we talk it out.

Neither of us believe in the silent treatment. It's immature.
