Sometimes I feel like I push his buttons when I don't intend too and he shuts down when I try to talk to him and we end up getting in a fight, how can I talk to him without causing a fight so he actually listens to me.

Speaking as a person that's like your husband (I shut down quickly when I feel confronted), just be as open as possible with him. The next time you feel like you pushed his buttons, apologize and say "I'm sorry...I didn't mean to make you upset I just want you to know that (whatever you wanted to address that pushed his buttons)."0
