My wife and I have been married for about 11 months and are now expecting our first baby late this year. Things have at times been difficult and I'm not sure if its me being unreasonable or the Mrs We've had an on-going disagreement over our Wedding day and the preparations. I've a brother who's a very experienced Wedding photographer and knowing he's had a very difficult time of it lately decided that he could have duel roles as photographer and Best Man (we're close and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way). Needless to say the Wedding photos weren't that great because he worked himself ragged. DW however has never forgiven me (despite my apologies and my honest admission that it was a bit much for him). We've had many arguments along the lines of me thinking of my brother needs instead of hers and how I can't be trusted with "other things" as I made such a mess up. I've kept the basics to a minimum but will explain should anyone ask smile

I agree with Francescabell's point that, in isolation, poor wedding photos are not something you dissolve a new marriage over. So either it's a 'last straw' thing and there is a lot more wrong with this relationship than you think (trust, loyalty, priorities, resentment) .... or.... she's the type of person that drags up every old grievance, whether it's relevant or not, every time you fall-out in order to escalate it into a massive fight. Either way I don't think passively 'sucking it up' is doing you any favours.
