My SO had the irritating habit of not responding when I ask a question - he hears the question and thinks about it, but doesn't actually acknowledge it to me, meaning I have no idea if he's even heard me... Me: what do you fancy doing at the weekend? SO: .... Me: .... SO: .... Me: did you hear me? SO: I'M THINKING FFS!!! Grrrrrrrr.

After a while of being married, sometimes you realise that it just wasn't meant to be. Either you are too different or aren't connecting like you used to, but either way, try talking it over. It could become a serious issue later on if not already

Mm so you are having dinner with your wife and just staring blankly out the window instead of engaging with her, then when she tries to strike up a conversation, you say "nothing?" She might've been a bit extreme, but I can kind of see where she is coming from

I had to go YDI for the same reason. You are lucky enough to have someone in your life who cares about you yet you can't care enough to pay attention to her while you are on a date? Either engage in the relationship or leave it behind. Unless, of course, you had a lot going on and were exhausted or had some good reason for zoning out, but that was not conveyed in this FML

I would say YDI. As others pointed out already, she might have overreacted a bit, but why were you not talking to your wife? It's a dinner for Gods sake, it's a bit strange to just stare out of the window.

Holy cow. The guy zones out for a minute and suddenly he's ignoring her, they aren't communicating and their relationship isn't meant to be?!? Give OP a break - he just took a momentary mental vacation.

Yeah, I do this all the time and my wife understands. Sometimes, I just zone out. Especially if it's been a long week and I'm tired, I tend to literally think about nothing. If the wife was upset about there not being conversation, she could have stimulated it in a different way. It didn't sound like this was the way he was acting all night, just caught in the moment.

Thank you! Both me and my girlfriend just zone out sometimes, we get that if we need to "get them back" we give the other a nudge. No one else understands that and think that OP did something wrong, the poor guy

Totally being hypothetical here, but it's possible the guy (could be me) has had a mentally exhausting day at work and is just zoning out for bit and the SO has been by herself all day and wants some intellectual stimulation. Happens all the time, but can be a recipe for disaster if neither party recognizes what's going on. There needs to be maturity and understanding on both sides.
