working with my wife!!!!HELP Should I fire her????

Now I am just starting out and my wife is working with me. (bless her heart)
When I am working I am in charge and I guess I can be a little demanding in how I want things done, I want my work to speak for me and get new customers. So I might say WTF are you doing and you know how it is. Well when we get home I am out of work mode and want to relax etc.... She is throwing pots and pans rolling eyes (smile) neck and everything else because of something I said at work. She is the best worker I have ever worked with, should I fire my wife. I don't know how she would take that...

Probably better to have her work in office and talk to clients....maybe tell her you need help with passing out flyers and answering calls, billing because you are not good at that....
