Counseling session #23: She agrees with the age-old marital advice: "Never go to bed angry." He says it does no good to continue arguing when you are tired. What say you?

Mr. Being tired doesn't help the problem.They can sleep on it and if they agree to discuss again at a set time they can both go to bed not feeling too horrible. (Unless someone cheated or murdurded in-laws. These should be discussed immediately)

I read it as "Never go to bed hungry"
Was very confused

I say both are right. He says "it does no good to continue arguing when you are tired." So put the argument aside, make-up and go to bed Happy. Or at least not angry.

A trip to the shoe store tends to solve many problems.

Maybe more fighting is not required. Maybe forgiveness is required. Sleep sweet.

I'm somewhere in between, I agree don't go to bed angry but I think there can come a point where it does both parties involved some good to sleep it off and clearer their minds.

Agree to shut your mouthed, kiss and sat good night. Tomorrow is a new day.

... So, my vote falls somewhere in-between. I don't believe in going to bed angry but also not to dug gin' it all out. Call truce and sleep on it.

If I can't keep my eyes open all bets are off, I am useless and will be more irritable. Better to get some sleep, anger takes time to dissolve anyway.

Mrs. Have you ever tried going to sleep when you are angry? I can't and I can fall asleep standing up! Talk it out. You will both feel better and when you wake up you won't have this cloud of doom hanging over your head.

The age breakdown is interesting on this one.

It's the opposite of what I'd expect. Most of the pro-Mrs. comments here are from 40+ users. And we 60+ folks are usually the wisest about marriage.

Mrs. It's important to "fight fair", take turns, really listen to what your SO is saying, then hit the hay when you've worked it out.

I requested a rule (that she doesn't follow) of no important discussions after 9 to prevent any arguments from interrupting my sleep timing

I think far more rationally when I have had time to cool down and evaluate the situation.
My wife knows that if I am getting heated it is best just to table the conversation and allow me to do some self analysis.

Mrs. Though I think it's more of a nice thought, not always doable. My boyfriend and I have only went to bed mad at eachother once, but I was mad for WEEKS. It would do no good to stay awake that long

Mrs. on this one. You don't have to figure it at out, but at least come to a temporary resolution and "make up" before going to sleep.

Aren't they both saying about the same thing? We're tired, we're getting grumpy, let's just let it go.
