There is a marital behavior that is not only annoying, but it is a sign that you might end up getting divorced. The silent treatment is one of the worst things you can do to your partner in a relationship. The term that this is called by people is stonewalling and it is one of the worst things you can do to your partner. There are other destructive forces that you should be aware of too.
- Do not enter a conversation with pre-determined judgements. Giving your partner the benefit of the doubt build trust and open communication.
- Be aware of your own actions and reactions. By acknowledging changes in yourself before you lose your temper you can effective communicate.
- Communication IS key. If you feel overwhelmed or tired communicate this with your partner.
“Regardless of what you choose to call it, ignoring ― or being evasive toward your partner during an argument ― is a huge communication sin in a relationship.”
