You say you’re normally pretty good at communicating…so I suggest you try to get to the bottom of this one. What was it really about, because it sure as heck wasn’t about yarn. His comment sounds like he was pissed about something else and trying to provoke you. Who sleeps in the other room over something like this? Sounds like a dramatic escalation over a minor tiff. You don’t have to blow it up into a bigger deal, but ask – hey, what was that about? Can we figure out a better way to express ourselves when we’re stressed, so we don’t hurt each other?

FH and I once got in a fight over who was cooking dinner that night. We literally had a fight about food in our house. FOR REAL. I was actually really mad at him, and last night I was mad at him again, because I didn’t feel like cooking and he wasn’t cooking for me! (For the record I usually prep and cook the food, he does it sometimes or he doesn’t eat. )

Agree with PP it’s not about yarn. In the moment, I would probably sass back and say “not as expensive as your video games” to show the comment was dumb. But better to talk it over… 🙂

He sounds abusive. I’m sorry this happened.

I wouldn’t  worry too much OP , unless  it  happens often and he gets agressive. My h and I once  had a shouting yelling  fight over whether it was reasonable  to assume that some unearthed skeletons were  gladiators or not…..nobody slept in another room but there was a lot of ice in the marital  bedroom. We are probably a lot older than your husband , so less likely  to flounce , too uncomfortable lol. 

(A tv programme you understand, we weren’t actually doing the excavating ourselves  )

Make a blanket and cuddle – you both had long days.

my husband and i recently got into an argument about how we would divide a loaf of bread between us, if that makes you feel better.
