1. Their jokes have a hidden motive

Making a joke at the expense of the other is not an ideal thing to do, but with your partner, it goes to a different level. Your partner might mask their reason of annoyance behind a joke to make it sound humorous, whilst making their point. Well, criticism hurts the most when your partner brings it up especially, which is focused on your personality or character flaws. Instead of focusing on the problem they end up make a broad generalization about your personality.

This can lead to a cold-war or a passive-aggressive rebuttal depending on your personality, but this is not the most cordial way of resolving a problem in the relationship. It would deteriorate the foundational fabric of the relationship, but talking about it in a calm manner and openly about what may be causing them to react in a certain manner can help resolve the issue.

Defensiveness is another way that your partner might adopt to hint that they are annoyed with you. Being on the defensive means that they are not going to take responsibility for anything and will be blaming you for everything that goes wrong. There are various reasons why they are making you the prime reason for putting you in such a situation.
