sometimes i do that...lol guilty as charge. When me and my hubby have disagreement on something, first 5 minutes sometimes we argue...and then when i can feel both of us "got on fire" i stop and just be quiet...depend on how argument went, i can stay quiet for few hours. Somehow he will ask " you mad at me?"...I heard one time that this Silence treatment no good at all. But for me might me necessary ;) better than got into big argument. How about mylotters..do you or did you ever do this? Or maybe your spouse do that to you?

i must ask you about how the new tactics seem to be coming up :D You actually come up with so many, all the time, but bottom line is the bottom line... you cant live without me lol ! So i suggest you just give into being beaten all the time ha ha ,but that doesnt mean i dont love you :) and then our relationship is all about you isnt it sweetheart ?? Btw what do i do to my girlfriend when i am upset with her, nothing because she is a sweetheart and never does anything to upset me ever :)

Guilty here too! LOL Mind you, I don't get silent AFTER an argument. I am silent when I get upset or hurt by something. He always knows I'm not happy because I just don't speak to anyone. He'll do the same as your hubby... keeps asking "are you mad at me?" or "what did I do this time?" LOL that second one makes me laugh most times. He gets mad if he asks what's wrong and I say "nothing"... but sometimes I'm not in the frame of mind yet to discuss the problem. When that happens and I feel pushed, I lash out in anger rather than being able to properly tell him what the problem is. For me, silent treatment means time to think and maybe have a cooler head ;)

LOL! EXACTLY! We say "nothing" but every man alive knows it's really "something"... and we *think* they're supposed to know without us telling them ;) Most men I know HATE hearing the word "nothing" now LOL

yes i do. i prefer to keep quiet instead of blurting out and making the problem bigger. it gives us time to think things out and after abt 10-15minutes, we apologize to each other and we're okay.

hmmm...me too..lol! when i'm mad i just keep quiet and tell him the reason after a while, when my emotions subsides, and he knows it. he'll wait a while before asking me if im mad at him. and of course, same as you guys, at first, i'll say "nothing"...lol...but when he insist, i'll say everything.
