Re: Mr. and Mrs. Drerio's Journey

It is rare nowadays when my wife and I part for our respective jobs or other activities to not kiss and tell each other have safe day (or something to that affect).

Anyway, we sort of had a blow out fight this morning. The issue is not as important as that we did not resolve the anger and we parted with no words or physical contact. I really hate these days. Ugh.

The fact that you HATE it.. helps bring you back together quicker though, doesn't it? .. If you were numb to it..or just plain stubborn...then it could go on longer, where you & she slip into just roommates..

Who generally brings the Olive branch ?? Hopefully you both do... thought I'd ask..

I will admit I can often be more stubborn, but I think this time I should be the one with the olive branch.

BTDT, not nice but we usually cool off while apart, then naturally fall back into our happier routine (a rat/maze thing), and then work on the issue. Hope it's similar for you.



Sigh, my wife gives me the speaking treatment.

I pretty sure it will be. Making up for us can be exciting.

I am thinking the majority is more like this...what you describe here CharlieParker...

We're a little different.. There have been times I'd slam a door in a huff... (frustrated) but then... I come crawling back as I can't stay away....

All in all.. our fighting style is rather humorous... I open the crack of the door telling him I am so pathetic that I can't stay away from him.... .never fails.. he gets this corner smile on his face .. he likes that !!

Truth is.. we're both kinda worthless, feeling the weight of the world ...just miserable when we're at odds... we both hate it.. this keeps our fights very short lived.. it's like we have to just wade through it ...finding our peace.. He listens to me.. I listen to him. we unload..

I am more the hot head for sure.. but he handles me so well...it's hard to stay mad at the man.. I know it's ME who needs to bring that dang olive branch... though he's done it even when it was my place.... Just gotta love him for putting up with me - at times..

I am betting you feel this way about your wife @Ikaika , as you said you can be stubborn, probably more your place to bring the olive branch...

Making up can be very passionate. I've said this before... Mine's accused me of fighting - just for make up sex a # of times over the past 8 yrs... I swear it's not true.. but yet.. I sure don't mind it either!
