My answer is based on my experience. First and foremost read what God’s word has to say about the roles of husband and wife. Together with that, I will add this - If you disagree about something: * Never yell at your spouse or belittle his/her opinions * Never punish your spouse with the silent treatment * Never go to bed angry * Always be respectful of your spouse for all their daily efforts * Always sit down to discuss what the problems are and take time to work out a solution without anger, yelling or scarcasm. * It’s ok to agree to disagree Everyone has “off” days. Agree to not pester each other when you sense that person needs space. * Be patient and kind * Be a good listener * Pray together and put God first in all your plans * Don’t forget to laugh and as my husband says enjoy the journey
One key I have found to marital happiness is avoiding selfishness 1 John 5:14-15.
