I've been with my wife for a few years now, and in the beginning, her smart mouth was a turn on, now its just out of hand and when we have normal conversations, she gets smart for no reason and sometimes it hurts my feelings. I don't wanna lash out at her, but I don't know how to tell her to stop.

You have a legitimate reason to feel the way you do. She can't know it bothers you unless you tell her so. If you hold it in, then eventually the pressure from frustration will build up enough that you WILL lash out and she'll have no idea where it came from. So instead of letting it build up, you need to calmly tell her how you feel when she treats you that way. When it happens, just tell her . . . "When you talk to me like that sometimes it makes me feel ____ disrespected, hurt, etc. Would you please start being nicer?"0
