Culture Difference

my name is Kevin and I married a Dominican woman and their culture generally speaks louder then what I'm use to. I'm a man who gets nervous around loud noises and yelling. it's taking me a lot of patience and understanding the culture to realize that this isn't yelling in a mean punishing way all the time, just a different culture. there have been misunderstandings between my wife and I about yelling, and speaking to each other in the Civil tones. the issue is what civil is defined as in our cultures, and the answer is Just in communication alone. good healthy loving committed relationship and good communication.
