  • probably talk to him, not us. communication is key to a successful marriage.

  • How long have you been married? I remember during the early years of our marriage, we would find little things to "pick on" and start arguments. It's the adjustment period and yes, it can last a few years.

    Communication is definitely the key. Remember it works both ways ... you have to TALK and LISTEN.

    Good Luck.

  • Well, the first thing would be communication. Try not to accuse him of things.. and just tell him how it makes you feel. Like.. accusing him of starting fights over little things. Instead of generalizing like that... you could ask him if something is wrong when he starts making a big fuss about something small. My Dh does this a lot... and instead of even paying attention to what he's talking about.. I ask him what's wrong.. and why he's reacting so poorly.. he usually says he's tired, stressed, hungry, etc... then we're getting straight to the real issue instead of arguing for a half hour over who spilled water on the floor.
    The most important thing I think is to take a break from him and relax. It sounds like you're stressed out and very impatient with him right now. I don't know if you meditate or do yoga.. but those are both beneficial when dealing with stressful husbands/children. :) Good luck!
