Do you think that you would rather just avoid a confrontation with your husband if you have a problem you need to talk about or would you rather just talk it out and see if you can possible work on things? Sometimes I just like to avoid arguing but if it is something very important then I have to say something.

I think it is incredibly important to discuss things openly. If couples do not discuss things which may be bothering them, then it can lead to long-term resentment which is obviously very unhealthy for any relationship. In a mature, loving relationship, I really believe that both partners should feel comfortable about openly speaking about something which has been bothering them/been on their minds. Of course, problems/issues should always be expressed without offending your partner. Like I said, in any mature relationship, things would be handled without offending one another anyway
