3. Respect each other.
One of the biggest romance killers in marriage is lack of respect and contempt. Working hard to maintain respect for your partner is essential.
The saying ‘familiarity breeds contempt’ is an accurate one, and something that happens in many committed relationships. As time goes on, personalities can clash and unsettled issues can simmer. As a result, partners can lose respect for each other. How can you be in a happy marriage when you don’t respect your partner?
Unfortunately, it is easy to fall into the trap of losing respect for each other. You can keep yourself out of the trap by speaking to each other honestly and sharing your feelings and needs in an open way. By not attacking each other personally and criticizing each other’s behaviors and actions.
