Questions and Answers

Dealing with silent treatment- what can I do?

My husband is a narcissist. He frequently dishes out the silent treatment. Usually there are signs prior. He starts acting uneasy. There will be no provocation form me at all but watching his unease is difficult. He deliberately does things to try to create and argument. Usually small but disrespectful things. Usually very subtle and if I challenge him I get the silent treatment. Friday he was in a good mood - we went cycling in the evening. When we got back we were watching TV. He got up and went to bed. No good night etc. From the morning he was off form. I tried to ignore it. We planned a cycle trip and agreed to take a train. He then decided no train and we cycled around busy London. We got back and he was off form, just looking at his phone and not talking. This is a recurrent thing. I hate it. I believe in marriage and know what a respectful and loving one is. This morning is day 2 of silence. No communication at all. Curt replies and he left for the day - who knows where. I confronted him before and twice he was physically abusive so I avoid confrontation.. . Should I move out temporarily and stay in a hotel or do something else? How to teach him that this is not acceptable and there are consequences. I fear confrontation too but otherwise I am likely to receive more of the same. Any cure and tips to deal with this ?. Teresa. I have tried: Humor, Confrontation, Ignoring. I think it was caused by: No idea
