Why do we express anger toward each? It's because anger is a manifestation that we feel we've been wronged. Our sense of justice comes from the moral law that God has implanted in us.
What if you're a talker but your husband isn't? See if he's willing to read a book on marriage with you, then ask him what his thoughts are. In that instance, it may help him to express his thoughts verbally.
Events that you consider to be unfair, unkind, unjust or unloving can easily lead to an outburst of anger. Our anger can often come from a distorted view of the offense.
How do you overcome communication barriers? One approach would be to find a good book that deals with these barriers, and encourage your spouse to read it with you. Then discuss what each of you have learned.
