I do this ALL THE TIME. Fiance makes me sooooo mad sometimes, & then I’ll start giving him the silent treatment…sometimes he’ll be on the other couch or sitting beside me & when it gets really quiet, I can’t help but laugh!!! A lot of times I’ll have to turn my face so Fiance doesn’t know I’m laughing. Because when he DOES find out I’m laughing I get even MORE mad!!
Haha, but it helps in the long run, it breaks the silence & gets us in better moods 🙂 Sometimes I just wish I could stay mad!!!

Yes. He makes me laugh at myself when I’m really mad by going quiet so that I keep talking and talking and talking until I realize how ridiculous I sound. I both love and hate him for that, haha!

@lily: YES me too!!! It makes me laugh just thinking about it. It’s like I DON’T want to laugh…but I can’t help it!!! Fiance is smart for doing that, though. Being quiet & letting you know how ridiculous you sound! Haha, because most of the time we argue over small stuff, so I know I sound ridiculous LOTS of times!

That happens to me all the time. Mostly because he makes ridiculous faces on purpose to make me laugh. It’s his evil tactic to make me forgive him for whatever it is I’m mad about.

all the time one sec we’re screaming at each other then he makes a face or i do and we’re both cracking up laughing… and he has this habit of tickling me when i’m mad which makes it even worse! lol he’s a goober.

It’s always like right when I’m MOST pissed at him…I’ll start yelling or something dramatic and then it just hits me how stupid I must look…and I laugh.

We do silly faces at each other to make the other person laugh if we’re upset at each other or over something. It works a treat to break the ice again, though I’m a lot better at making FH crack up and he doesn’t always think that’s fair 😉

@Lees- I do this all the time, can’t help it. It does help us realize whatever we are fighting about isn’t worth it…usually!

We don’t really get MAD at eachother, but we do get frustrated… I can’t help but laugh when that happens cause he’s so careful as to not do anything to make me mad (I rarely get mad!) and it makes me so amused.

Ohhh yes I laugh all the time. It’s SO annoying because he doesn’t understand that what he did really makes me mad. He thinks its a big joke. The only time he’ll take me serious is if I cry!!

Oh wow – I know exactly what you’re talking about! My guy is notorious for turning fights into laugh fests – makes me buggy sometimes.
(P.S. There’s a county song by JoDee Messina about this – I Just Want To Be Mad For A While. Some days it feels like my theme song lol)

- Wedding: September 2009 - Westwind YWCA camp
this morning Mr BC burped really loudly, and then said, “BOOM!” (instead of “excuse me”). I was pissed at his complete lack of sensitivity about his rude rude rude burping (at least say excuse me!).
when I tried to tell him “I’d wished he would have said excuse me, instead of BOOM” I couldn’t help laughing!
who says “BOOM” when they burp?? ridiculous!

we dont argue often but the one and only time my hubby has ever raised his voice at me (we were arguing about me wanting to go home and not spend the night and he was frustrated i wouldnt live with him) i burst out laughing because him yelling was seriously out of character for him and i think i said to him at the time “if thats you trying to be scary & loud it doesnt work” or along those lines

It is also possible that during the times when you are the most mad and end up laughing it is just the need for a physical release of strong emotion. Laughing is actually really close to crying in terms of the drives it satisfies.
And then sometimes situations just are funny. I probably would have laughed at the burper who said boom haha.
