My husband always finds faults in me, MIL does't like me. I am depressed

Asked by Female, 34, Married
I am married 34 years old, mother of two kids aged girl 8 years and boy 11 months. The problem is in my marriage. My husband is always criticizing me. In anything n everything. He doesn't leave a single chance to do so. I have stayed with my in-laws for 6 years n now we stay separate in a different city. My mother-in-law never liked me. She was always telling my husband that I am not good enough. We had a love marriage with a lot of fighting with our families. But eventually they gave permission. It was his family actually that was against our marriage. But he somehow convinced them. But after marriage I was not happy even for a day. We never celebrated any occasion or never went out on vacations. Now suddenly my husband has started to find faults in everything I do. Even when I talk to my maids, he makes annoying faces at me expressing his disagreement on what I am telling them. That I should speak to them in a more proper way. What is tha proper way I don't know yet! All this is making my life hell. I feel like I am going into depression! Please Help!
