Why would your Narcissistic spouse give you the silent treatment?

They might be hurt. "Feelings."

Answer They are deeply injured by some slight remark you made. oh anything you said - to stick up for yourself to express an opinion to point out an err on his part. It's the proverbial six year old mad at mommy so hes going to hold his breath till he turns blue. Thing is human six year olds grow out of it and learn the world does not revolve around him. Trust me they are even more pertubed when you just ignore him and get on with your life as if he was nothing more than a mosquito bite. The effect is often startling and sometimes humorous. They will then go into another mode saying, acting and doing the wierdest things to get your attention. again the six year old is saying "look at me mommy see what i can do?" Keep ignoring him he will go away and find other people to irritate. Its a good sign when hes in silient treatment mode. Because you are getting to him......
