Thanks in advance for reading this, feels good just to unload in an anonymous forum like this. I had a great girlfriend that I was crazy about, and I was thrilled when I was finally in a better financial position and was able to marry her. But less than a week after I popped the question, she became this different person - she got more critical of me , more prone to nurse grudges (she had a fight with my family one night, and acted like she had PTSD for the next 7 months). I won't lie, I thought about calling it off, but she always did just enough right to give me hope that things would change. We got married 4 months ago, and - while there have been great times, there have been so many fights. I feel overwhelmed by how many things I don't do up to her standards (cleaning, for example - my old place was an absolute pig sty, I'm messy by nature, our house, though, I try to keep so neat, but she will pitch a fit if some old receipts are left on top of my dresser). When we talk, she accuses me of saying its always her, but the thing is - it is. There's never a time when I have come home in a bad mood, never a time when she's greeted me cheerfully and been met with a short "we need to talk." I am an easygoing guy married to a woman with a serious chip on her shoulder.
I can't believe I'm just a few months into this and feeling trapped already. Please, someone, tell me something I can do, because I cannot go on living like this.
