1. Be open to forgiveness:

Married couples get into disputes all of the time. Try not to let your spouse go to bed upset, and do not allow yourself to hold grudges. Work it out!

2. Plan out your future together:

As a married couple, you should discuss your goals and aspirations with each other. For example, you two should discuss whether or not you would like to have children in the future.

3. Avoid criticizing your partner:

Instead of attacking your spouse's personality and having negative comments, try to say something more constructive.
