shabbat 118

R. Yosei's wife knew that there was no point in being upset or offended.
he wasn't going to apologise.
that was just how he saw her.

so she never saw him.

(there are many statements about R. Yosei on this page. he referred to his wife as 'my house', he never retracted anything he said about anyone. the walls of his house never saw him naked. and there is a question about whether or not he fulfilled his sexual obligations to his wife. for english translation of this talmud page, see here)
