Be patient with your spuouse, communicate everyday, be romantic, be generous; do everything you can to make your marriage better. Marriage is an everyday effort; it demands that you work on it 365 days of the year. During hard times, stick with your spouse and show that you are a team - in both happy and tough times. If you are currently stuck in a rut or a huge problem, do not be afraid to seek help from family, the church or a professional counselor. Sometimes you may be so involved that you cannot see the main issue; this insight can be provided by an outsider. You can also read marriage help books together and seek solutions from them.
