I get the idea, but I don't know how "venting" fits into MB?

What comes to mind from my time here; a particular poster who liked to vent and/or "brain dump" to her husband, which he did not enjoy. She was advised by her phone coach to stop venting about her work day to her (B)H.

The mention that uncontrolled emotional outbursts (not just angry, mind you, but even tearful ones) with your spouse is not conducive to being a pleasant companion.

Allowing her to constantly "vent" is going to drain her LB$ account with you - it's a win/lose situation, sir.
