@BurlapnLace:  why do you get sarcastic with him? Just tell him you’d prefer a simple “no thank you” when you offer him food. Or quit offering him your food.

Some people just werent raised with the same manners. My loving man thinks table manners are only for dining out or with people but I was raised that they are for anytime ever. I pick my battles and just skip that one.

@SmileyKitty:  +1. 

And if that does not work just be honest with him about how you feel and if that does not work throw a pillow at his head.

@BurlapnLace:  why don’t you just talk with him about it? Let him know that you don’t appreciate his sarcasm when you’re just asking him a simple question. I don’t care how much stress etc, you’re under. It’s no excuse to be rude to your partner. (in my books) If my Fiance responded sarcastically to me anymore than once, we would be talking. No brainer to me. 

And stop praising him..that way you won’t feel resentment when it isn’t reciprocated. However, it shouldn’t be about receiving compliments back (though, I can see how it would be frustrating for your actions to go unoticed) But…at the end if the day, praise and compliments are tricky things. If you have to pull them out of somebody, they dont really mean much anymore.

I agree on the 5 Love Languages book.  It’s really helpful.

My guy’s manner of expressing love is doing things for me–keeping my car maintenance, grocery shopping, taking my elderly cat to the vet, {and a BIG ONE} involving himself in my two boys’ life.

When I ask him “How do I look?”  He always tells me You look beautiful, you always do, why do I have to keep telling you?”  So I have to slow my roll and remember how he expresses himself.
