2. Be Open About Money Matters
Money is the source of most newlywed arguments, and disagreements over how to handle cash is major reason for separations.
It makes sense, really; you’re both accustomed to being in charge of your own money, and you likely have different opinions on how to spend and save.

3. Listen When Your Spouse Needs To Talk
You should be the one person your spouse knows they can always go to talk about his deepest emotions, his fears, as well as his ideas. And he needs to know he can do that without judgment, without criticism.
Listen with empathy and without feeling like you have to “fix” things. The ability to sit and listen will open you both up to more honest communication and acceptance, which will draw you closer and make your relationship stronger.
4. Make Your Spouse Feel Appreciated
Make sure your spouse never feels taken for granted by always taking the time to let them know when they’ve done a good job. You should make a regular habit of finding something you appreciate about your spouse – and letting him know it.
We know that no one can play the adoring spouse all day, every day, but the fact is that a happy relationship doesn’t just happen by accident. It takes a constant effort to create a loving atmosphere that lasts. It’s the small things – a kiss on the cheek, a love letter in a lunch bag or a little unexpected gift – that keep love strong.
5. Realize And Accept It: He’s Not Perfect
There’s a joke that women marry a man the way he is, and then spend the rest of their lives trying to change him. While you may have dreams of training your man to be the perfect husband, it’s time to wake up and smell the reality. He’s human, he’s not perfect and he’s going to do things that make you crazy.
Instead of letting his imperfections make you nuts, focus on the good things he does. When you feel like tearing your hair out as you pick up his underwear from the bathroom floor AGAIN, think about the way always makes sure your car tires have air in them. Remember that there are hundreds of little things he does right.
Remember that there may come a day when you’ll truly miss seeing his dirty underwear on the floor.
6. Don’t Go To Bed Angry
It’s probably the best known of all marriage advice, but there’s a reason for that – it’s important. The marriage bed is a private and personal space, and there’s no room for anger in it.
That doesn’t mean that you have to solve the problem, or that someone has to “win” the argument – you can always agree to disagree. But one way or another you should let it go and go to bed without anger. You can always agree to “take a break” from the argument and finish it up in the morning – odds are, you’ll see things in a very different light by then! If the dispute hasn’t been settled, agree to tackle it in the morning – you’ll likely have forgotten why you were even angry in the first place.
