If this is a regular occurrence in your relationship, you are not alone in your pain.
According to research conducted by The Gottman Institute:
- Men are consistently more likely to stonewall than women are.
- Men will withdraw emotionally from conflict discussions, whereas women tend to remain emotionally engaged.
- Results showed that 85% of stonewallers studied in the Love Lab were men.
- However, when women stonewall, it was highly predictive of divorce.
