Five Tips for a Happy Marriage

1. Appreciate your spouse at least once every day.

 2. Create a safe space for your spouse to talk to you by listening carefully through mirroring back what you hear, validation, and trying to contain your triggers.

 3. Try to be honest about your needs for reassurance without getting defensive or shutting down.

 4. Try to be empathetic, responsive and available to your spouse when you see you are needed.

 5. Learn to understand your spouse’s love language by knowing what they appreciate the most: quality time, words of affirmation, gifts, physical touch, and acts of service — then act accordingly.
