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
