That would require a very long and complex response, Cran. Lets see if I can try to avoid giving a passive-aggressive response ! Have you tried googling Passive-aggressive and relationship ?
The basic point you seem to be being confused by is that it is about how one ( or maybe both ) people relate to others --- its not that one person is passive and the other aggressive, or that they vary day to day, but that it is a specific style of being aggressive in a pessive way.
For instance, you want him to buy the milk. In more active aggressuion, he would refuse, shout at you, whatever. A passive-aggressive response would be to say "SUre" --- and handily forget to every actually get any milk, and to make feeble excuses when you ask about it.
