Remember that being married means you and your spouse want to be a priority in each other’s life. Make sure to honor this rule and keep your spouse in your mind; always try to do what is best for you both not for you only.
Communication is the key to a happy marriage; you and your spouse should maintain talking to each other about your thoughts and particularly about things that you two need to agree upon. This will foster communication between both of you and keep your marriage strong and healthy.
Never say cruel words in anger intentionally to hurt your spouse because this can cause a permanent damage to your relationship. If you end up saying something that would hurt your spouse, make sure to apologize. In arguments, do not personally attack your spouse and keep to the subject.
If your partner confided in you with something very private, do not report it to someone else and undermine that trust. If it is something personal and painful, do not use it as a weapon during arguments otherwise your spouse will feel betrayed.
Remember to be considerate and honor the trust your spouse gave you; you should be the person your spouse trusts the most in the world. Do not jeopardize his confidence and make sure you apologize, when you make a mistake.
If you sense that something is not right with your spouse, do not ignore it and ask what is the matter; this could be the time your spouse needs your attention the most. If he is not ready to talk, do not push it as this can make things worse; just show that you will be there when he is ready to talk. Additionally, if you are in a social setting and you noticed that something is wrong, take your spouse aside and ask about it alone not in front of everyone.
