    than or rather than

    What should I use in the two sentences below - than or rather than:

    1. "You prefer to keep silent rather than to speak and enter into a discussion."
    2. "It is necessary to express your point of view (opinion or evaluation). You prefer to present your arguments in writing rather than in oral form."
