I would much rather have a full blown row than the silent treatment.
If a woman stops arguing she has stopped caring and you are in major trouble. Now most women can keep it in for a while but eventually it will come out unless she really doesn't give a damn about you or the problem. Guys figure, hey, we not fighting, so everthing is OK, lets have sex to celebrate the peace.
I would have to say being silent...the arguments are done and overwith.Being silent is only prolonging the problem and when the silence is broken it is going to unleash the wrath that has been building and going to be the worse experience you ever had.
i dont like either
