You love your spouse for who they are, not for who they could be. Loving someone for who they could be suggests you want to change your spouse into who you want them to be.

When disagreements come, as they will, you need to fight to fix the situation, not to win the situation. A fight should be an opportunity to see the other person’s point of view, understand each other's feelings, and work toward an equitable resolution. Choose to see the best, not the worst. It is a choice where we place our attention. Where we focus we apply our energy

It’s best to communicate what you want instead of what you don't want. There’s a difference between a complaint and a constructive comment.

You apologize because you care, not to make a problem go away. You don’t get points for saying “I’m sorry” abruptly or for playing the martyr. An apology isn’t about making a fight go away, it’s about overcoming an issue as a team.

Show each other you love each other every day, not just on special occasions. Spend quality time together it will connect you to each other.

Ephesians 5:33 - Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife [see] that she reverence [her] husband.
