DH and I are partial to the odd play fight but I’ve noticed recently when I accidentally get hurt we both laugh it off. The way I see it, it wasn’t intentional so can’t get angry about it but whenever DH gets hurt it’s always a ‘you go too far’.

So tonight, he was changing and threw his pants at me. He had some coins which hit the side of my face. Completely laughed it off. He came over to check I wasn’t hurt and he accidentally poked me in the eye. Again laughing it off I vowed to get him back.

I had a small box to hand so was aiming at him. He was laughing, and acting like a goalie moving side to side. Anyway, my aim was obviously better than I thought and it smacked him straight on his head which I concede must have hurt a little. I apologised but was also laughing. He came after me and started to tickle me as revenge. I said ‘ow no that hurts now’. All this time we were both laughing and then we called a truce.

He then started to tickle me again, and to get him off me, I smacked the side of his body twice and then, I guess you could say, smacked the side of his face/head. He jumped straight off me and said I take things too far and he was shocked that I could easily smack his face.

The way I see it is; it wasn’t like I aimed and punched straight at his face. It was in reaction to being tickled. I also got hurt but laughed it off as it’s all part and parcel of play fighting.
The way he sees it is I took it too far firstly when the box hit his head but he ‘let that go’ but then again I took it too far hitting him and I can’t just punch someone in a play fight.

He stormed off, I got annoyed that he always does this when he gets hurt but when I do we just laugh it off. Huge row. Now he’s upstairs, I’m downstairs, and we’re not talking.

So who was unreasonable? Me or DH?

You are both unreasonable, grow up and stop hurting each other "play fighting".

Weird way to conduct an adult relationship IMO.

I mediate on these sorts of rows between my juvenile DC

Play and fighting are two words that don't go together.
Stop it.

If this is a pattern, play fighting doesn't seem like a good game to play.

Grow up

You're both behaving like 5 year olds.. Really. Such a silly post, I couldn't care less. Grow up the pair of you.

stop hitting each other and buy some supersavers. Or nerf guns. Even playing field then. grin

peachypetite Fri 17-Nov-17 21:43:21

You both sound completely immature.

MeadowHay Fri 17-Nov-17 21:43:24

Wow. You are both unreasonable to be play fighting as adults!

Creambun2 Fri 17-Nov-17 21:45:16

YABU to use the term "pants" when referring to trousers.

Thank you for your responses everyone.

WTF - 50 Shades of Infantility or wot?

I didn’t even read the whole thing it was so puerile. How old are the pair of you?

Sparkletastic Fri 17-Nov-17 22:12:38

This is odd. Are you sure you aren’t harbouring aggressive feelings towards one another?

ButchyRestingFace Fri 17-Nov-17 22:15:56

Thank you for your responses everyone.

The Greggs nativity sausage rolls are on me if there isn’t a deletion message within 15 minutes.

You're getting a rough time here! I like play fighting, it's fun.

Sounds like it just went a little far. Go speak to him.

Ecureuil Fri 17-Nov-17 22:18:08

This sounds like a fight between my 4 and 2 year old.
There seems to be a lot of ‘play fighting’ going on.

AlternativeTentacle Fri 17-Nov-17 22:18:17

people that do this are just so fucking odd.

Tenner says you're Teresa may 😂

dinnerladies11 Fri 17-Nov-17 22:19:41

Thanks @gunsandbanjos. It just seems like recently it always goes too far and it’s always me that he says is going too far. So basically an excuse for him to get upset / angry with me and act like the martyr.

Iloveanimals Fri 17-Nov-17 22:20:13

But on a serious side you're both crazy! Don't do it if it causes this!

ButchyRestingFace Fri 17-Nov-17 22:21:36

So tell him you no longer want to hit, slap or throw things at each other in the name of fun.

Simples. 👍

Topseyt Fri 17-Nov-17 22:26:00

Grow the fuck up.

You both sound like a pair of toddlers.

MimiDeLaSun Fri 17-Nov-17 22:28:28

I’m struggling to picture a pair of underpants with pockets for coins.

Because surely you aren’t calling trousers pants?
