I sometimes vent via text if I can be bothered, I used to use that method all the time because my not so DP flies off the handle when I try to discuss anything face to face and I have mostly given up trying to voice via a text because he doesn't reply and waits till he gets home to shut the conversation down. Hence don't bother much with the text method anymore. He's much more pleasant now that I just don't voice my concerns and it's just wonderful all round!!!

I do. FOB and I do. I articulate myself far better and if I'm upset I can slow myself down. Text. Email. Messenger.
Some people may think it's sad but I'm grateful for it.

Yes, it's a winner here. Sure beats arguing infront of the kids.

I wouldn't say it's bad, no.
DH and I do this sometimes too. Although now we have an "Issues Book".
While it is better to converse face-to-face (or so it is argued), if this is what works for you both, and resolves the issue, I see no problem with it.

I use email a lot to get him to change behaviour.
He is obsessed with his computer. On his day off he will stay on it from the moment he gets up, to the moment he goes to sleep (bar bathroom and smoke breaks).
So I have started sending emails saying "You're being antisocial again", and he switches it off for an hour.
When I tried verbalising it, he would just give me a look. Apparently he pays more attention to email lol.

Yep we do via text or even hand written letters. Most of the time we say (type?) what we need to get off our chest, and move on. If we cant or its a recurring subject we will then follow up via phone call if he is away or face to face when he is home.
