#2 Fight Fair
Every couple fights. Whether it is a full on word battle or bickering, you need to learn that you are fighting to prove a point, or voice your opinion. You aren’t fighting to hurt your spouse’s self-esteem by calling them names. Try to remember what you are arguing about, and think before you speak.
#3 Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff
Learn that your marriage is a partnership and you won’t also get your way. Each person will need to learn to comprise, pick their battles, and let go of the small things that you may normally hold a grudge about.
#4 Date Night
Life gets in the way of our relationships. Set time aside for a “Date Night” once a week so that you can unwind, and just be with your better half without a care in the world. Successful married couples will tell you to never stop dating your spouse.
You married your partner for a reason. Always remember why you fell in love in the first place, and don’t forget to renew your wedding vows. Understanding that marriage takes work and that no one is perfect; you will have a long, happy, and healthy marriage.
