When your soon-to-be ex-spouse gets angry or expresses dissatisfaction with something you have said, never respond with incendiary words such as:

“Deal with it”

“Get a grip”

“Calm down”

“You’re overacting”

“Grow up”


“Get over it”

“Anyone see my violin?”

“Give me a break”

“Looks like someone got up on the wrong side of the bed”

“Surely, you’re joking “

“My heart bleeds for you”

“Boy, what’s eating you today?”
