  • Communication is absolutely essential. I've been married to the same man for almost 19 years, lived together a year before that too. Even if the truth hurts, he has to be honest with you and you with him. Don't hold a grudge either, if a small thing bothers you, then mention it right away before it gets to be a big thing. Laugh together daily and enjoy eachother as friends as well as lovers. Don't give up on your marriage too easy either! This is a big one for me. We survived infidelity, the loss of our first child, and an 18 month tour in Iraq where he was perminantly disabled by a roadside bomb. All high stress, but we worked through it all ourselves and our marriage just got stronger each time. Remember why you married him in the first place too and love eachother whole heartedly.

  • Respect first. If you can't respect eachother's boundaries then it won't work no matter what you do. Being grown up means being able to say no and to be told no and being ok to deal with both. Things won't always go according to plan but that is ok. Always keep an open mind, listen more than you speak, and don't compromise yourself. Stick to your values if you feel strong about them but be flexible when you know you can be. Relationships are a process, and sometimes you have to step outside of ideals and be willing to re-write some of your expectations.

  • Make sure you love yourself and nurture yourself and honor your kids showing many respect and giving it often. At least one parent has to stand strong for the kids in love of their growth and the fact that they were born. If your partner five days of every seven day week always shares and partners with you and respects you in person privately and with others, your marriage will probably be better.
