TUT do you ever deliberatly try and get the silent treatment?

Just wondering, do any of you, when your wife/husband, life partner etc go on, deliberatly say or do something hoping you will get the silent treatment.

I seem to get the silent treatment often enough without doing it on purpose.The best one is "You love that car more than me!" Standard answer "Yes"

Dunno' what you mean, really? If it's does she sometimes appear deaf, and dumb, then the answer is yes. Plays possum, makes out she is not aware of what I say, or do! I'm in Coventry often, here, there, and everywhere!

No, wouldn't dare. What if it went wrong, she might kill me!

Honestly can't bear it if she's upset tho'.

Re: do you ever deliberatly try and get the silent treatment?

No I don't - ever. There is nothing, in my opinion, to be gained from such a move. You may as well deal with the situation at hand, be subjective with each other, and be done with the issues. Understand that the female wants you to listen to everything that is bothering her/needs to say. At the least, appear interested and that you are listening! Once you are done, things will be good again...

... Hmm... should take my own advice sometimes

No, that seems to be a good way to end the relationship. After 30 years of marriage, hubby and I know each other very well. If we have disagreements, we deal with it and move on. It never pays to let issues fester.

my 2cents worth.

The yes option seems rather futile to me

Re: do you ever deliberatly try and get the silent treatment?

Didnt even bother trying with my ex wife. If there was ever an argument she wouldnt leave me alone, couple of times I wanted to go outside to let things calm down but she would stand against the door and stop me. Therefore never got the chance
