I really need guidance on how to deal with a domineering husband and open a more productive communication channel with him.
it seems like every time i open my mouth, my husband will find something objectionable and start ranting and raving at me and tell me how i instigate these arguments between us over insignificant things. for example, the other day, he was saying how we (mom-in-law and me) do not take care of things at home as he could not find the payment receipt of shoes he'd bought recently but now wanted to exchange. I apologized and told him that maybe he could have kept it in a more safer place so that he could find it easily. and he just burst on me and blamed me for saying what i did and started a full-fledged argument over how i instigate him into starting these fights. and even now i do not realize what i said that made him so over-react over nothing.
every time i have a differing opinion from his, he will react so over the top and then say that i make him do it.
i honestly do not know how to talk to him or have even a general conversation without making him go mad.
please help..tell me what to do...
