We can only control (our) actions. It would be arrogant of us to try to "tell" someone how to react to what they are feeling. Whether your spouse wants to remove their ring, go for a walk, or give you the silent treatment it's all out of your hands. You can only control you!
If you are frequently having long drawn out arguments it may be possible that you are not right for one another. Oftentimes one or both people start to think they'd be happier being single than having to deal with same issues over and over again. This may be your spouse's way of silently letting you know they are at the breaking point.
Most fights or arguments are about establishing boundaries. One person feels they were disrespected, neglected, or there was no consideration given to their feelings. "Anger is the mask that hurt wears."
There's a saying: "When you start yelling I stop listening." If you are the hurt party instead of trying to score (ego points) by attacking someone (calmly) tell them how hurt you were that they....etc and then slowly walk away. Whether they offer an excuse or become defensive about it, it will linger in their mind. (If someone is truly in love with you the last thing they want to do is hurt you). You are far more likely to get an apology this way than you are by attacking someone.
On the other hand if you determine your mate does not care about your feelings then maybe you should be removing (your) ring! Why stay married if you're not in love? The basic definition of a "soul mate" is two people sharing the same values, wanting the same things for the relationship, (naturally agreeing) on how to obtain them, and having (mutual) feelings for one another.
