We Are Always Butting Heads On The Little Things

Me and my woman have been together for 2 yrs. We are always butting heads on little things in our communication about her micro questioning what or how I do things. I give my opinion about things or give a breakdown on answering a question she may have and then she says that that’s too much info or I am talking to her like she is a kid or demeaning. I mean at this point we pick at every little thing we say to each other because we take it negative. I have tried to stop and just not react or be quiet when she says somethng or makes a deep sigh or face that shows displeasure like what the hell am I talking to you for. But still my whole demeanor changes and the anger shows on my face even if I don’t say anything. Or she says I don’t respect her opinion if I give her my view on what she is talking about.  FYI- I have this serious looking face even when I am not serious. Even my kids tell me I look too serious. So what I say comes across a lot of times as overbearing and controlling. I love her and she loves me, but we need help in our communication.  Thanks

    Awesome advice. Now on the flip side….. So if your husband is the serious one… How's the best way to handle that? When it's hard to take the seriousness . When one in the marriage is light hearted and easy going and the other is the opposite. What's your advice to the light hearted one. How does he or she keep from withering away inside from being surrounded by such seriousness and criticism while loving his|her serious partner
