The Silent Treatment

How sad is it that my life is made better and easier when my wife gives me the silent treatment?

This is how the silent treatment works around here:

She sends me texts that are absolutely necessary, but other than that she avoids me and stays silent.

If I post something sincerely nice on her Facebook, she deletes it. Then she posts a sarcastic comment on my Facebook, which will appear to anyone who isn't clued in to be a sincere thanks. She hasn't unfriended me this time... yet. What is this, junior high school?

Anyway, the silent treatment is great. No orders. No requests. No instructions. No complaints. I have much more freedom to do what I want, how I want, when I want. I like it quiet. Who suffers more form this? Oh, sure, the kids suffer. It's her choice, though. Between the two of us, I mean, who suffers more?

Yeah, I don't get sex during the silent treatment. So I miss a weekly session. Big deal. With all of the restrictions she has on it, it's not a big punishment to deny me.

It's even better when she takes the kids to her parents' place without me. I do like her family, but I very much enjoy being alone. So, no wife, no kids.

If you'll excuse me, I'm going to go eat - something of my choosing. I'll probably get to sleep early, too. Nice!


  1. It's sad when you feel happier alone than when your wife is with you. I know the feeling.

    Same here, Peter. When it's just the kids and me, it's great. When she's around, it sucks.


Please no "cussing" or profanities or your comment won't be published. I have to approve your comment before it appears. I won't reject your comment for disagreement - I actually welcome disagreement. But I will not allow libelous comments (which is my main reason for requiring approval) and please try to avoid profanities. Thanks!
