Focus on how you can be a blessing to your spouse and, in turn, you will be blessed and so will your marriage.

9

Stop trying to control your partner. In a happy marriage, partners know they cannot control each other.

10

Never say I told you so even if you did. Saying so only creates ill will between you and your spouse.

11

Do not agree to anything if you do not mean it. It will only create more anger and resentment. Do not just say yes to avoid conflict.

Be an optimist. It is simple, but if you think positively about your marriage, your marriage will often be positive.

Couples who refuse to accept negative, hurtful behavior from the start tend to be happier down the road.

Make sure you really want to be married: You are going to go through many phases with your partner.

Recognize that most arguments have shared responsibility, that both people have valid points and valid reasons for their feelings.
