Synonyms of "Nagging" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between nagging and complaining and criticizing and grumbling and fault finding ?
A: Nagging is usually what a husband says his wife is doing. It's criticizing about something over and over again. So it's criticizing, but constant/repeated.

Fault finding would be the same as criticizing.

Complaining is more like criticizing the situation rather than a person. You'll complain about your circumstances (but it doesn't have to be a person's fault).

Grumbling sounds like complaining, to me. I don't use that one often, if ever.
