It is because you don't speak Thai.

But she speaks fluent English. She's been out of Thailand most of her life.

How long is a piece of string? Nobody can answer a question on the dynamics at work in other people's relationship. One thing can probably be said with confidence and that is it's got nothing to do with you not speaking Thai. It may be cultural, it may not. I don't recognise the stereotypical wife that some TV posters seem to have, as some mentally unbalanced dragon, ready to fly off the handle at the touch of a button.  I don't know any Thai ladies like that.  I do know a few farang ladies like that. Maybe you are just not compatible?

I believe it's a women thing.

I noticed similar patterns of behaviour with women in my home country.

Different cultures, different languages can add frustration, but it's also true that, despite coming from the same country, with a similar background, one can have serious problems communicating with the opposite sex.

Very common Thai trait. Several reasons for this including,

 

Thais' low tolerance for and high avoidance of conflict,

 

Thai language being a fairly rudimentary one that lacks descriptive power and 

 

Thais tending to speak in terribly vague terms, leaving much of the meaning to be interpreted by the listener 

 

They are typically poor at expressing emotion. 

So how exactly are conflicts resolved if you can't sit down and talk?
