No...Good try

Best Answer

sometimes silent treatment is the only response to emotional abuse, but only in the short term. However, cheating is never a good decision- always makes things worse.<br />
people who experience emotional abuse are as 'battered' emotionally as they would be if it was physical. Abusers wear down your self esteem and you are told you are worthless so often that you begin to believe you must deserve the abuse.<br />
Abusers are insecure control freaks who like to belittle those closest to make themselves feel better- thats not your fault OR your problem.<br />
the sad fact is that the situation will probably never change and may well become physical. Better to find support and make plans to leave for when you feel ready.

Thank you for your response.
Does it matter that we both just emulated what we were taught by our parents? She learned the silent treatment from her mom, I learned emotional abuse from my dad. We just repeated it in our relationship.
Do you think there's any hope for a marriage after we've hurt each other so profoundly?
