I would that dedication to your spouse is what truly matters. Honestly, love can waver in the face of different situations, and tempers can and will flare when you are in a relationship due to differing ideals and lifestyles. It is dedication that will ensure both spouses continue to work as a team for the marriage and for each other to create a deeper form of love.

Happy marriages usually have a few things going for them. First, they have realistic expectations of marriage and of each other. They don’t expect to get everything they need from one relationship. Second, they let the little things slide. If you constantly nitpick at one another, you will never be happy. It spawns a game of one-upmanship that cripples relationships. Third, happy couples spend time together doing things they enjoy. The importance of doing pleasant activities together cannot be overstated. When it comes to surviving the day to day troubles in marriage, having a strong and loving foundation is essential.

Keep the intimacy between yourself and your spouse at all times. The intimacy is what sets each of you apart from the other people in your lives, and create a special bond between the both of you. Without this intimacy, your spouse might seem like just a friend or a family partner, and that can dampen the relations between the both of you in the long run.

Also agree whith what's written above and most important is being friends with your spouse, close and intimate,respecting each other and accepting the other person's individuality is eally important for a real happy marriage :)
