Women like to be dominated and lead. Instead of asking her, for once, try telling her. For e.g., instead of asking what do you want to eat, tell her you are in the mood for Thai, Italian etc. Instead of asking her what would you like to do, tell her you are in the mood for a drive or whatever. No woman is going to tell you she wants to be lead or dominated - the plot is lost the moment she has to tell you that. Her foul-temper comes from her having to lead. She does not want to. Try taking charge.
I know this is a bit noir, but use them, instead of pedestalizing them.
