To talk or not to talk...

Personal relationships need a lot of time and patience. When one partner decides to keep silent after an argument, the other partner should just respect that silence. When the storm has settled down a bit, there will be time to talk and make amends. Who caused the trouble is not the issue anymore. Reconciliation and healing is the main thing.

I think that it is best to stay silent as that way most of the time it stops all the shouting aswell as arguing.I think that it is best to try and talk to each other when you are both calmer or have calmed down,rather than trying to talk straight away which will cause an arguement.

I think you are absolutely right. The more we try to talk when someone is angry, the more angrier a person and the conversation gets. Its always better to be left alone and let it cool down. It's just like the hot tea. We cannot drink tea when it is steaming hot. If we do then it will burn down our tongue. It is also advisable not to keep silence for long because cold tea doesn't taste good as well. One should know from the feeling as to what would be the appropriate timing and they way to talk after a huge argument.

I am silent when there's something that I dont like that my partner does. I think the time when I am silent is when I am really in a bad mood and if I am angry but its not healthy for me because my anger is kept in and when it burst, I can actually hit.

Well yes I agree with you. A relationship is a two player game, so both should have very good mutual understanding, otherwise a relationship can be really messy. And giving respect to each other is very important in a relationship. So even when there is a big argument, after it partner should not go silent and stop talking to each, rather they should sit together and discuss everything calmly.

Yea, is like that. We have no point to talk with someone who are not willing. Even if we happen to talk that person usually remain silent. Which is a great insult. Sure we need to have patience in that case.

We should always be patience.It is good talk ,if others were silent, where ever we are, we should know what to say and how to say and whom to say .If we were the speaker than we have give attention to the audiences and same goes to the audiences.

Very well said, talking is the most imporatant thing in any relationship, because as you age, the only thing left in your life is your partner, so its very important to cultivate a habit of holding a conversation right from begenning without bringing any prejudices in between, just sit and chat a while, do not poke fun at each other, just remember the reason why you fell in love, how you married, the things you enjoyed in the past, there are ample topics to pick from provided you decide not to pick your partners brains during the talk.
