Golden Rule # 1, assume the best intentions.

The real reason for that is it is hard to feel love in your heart and have good energy in a marriage if you are always thinking that your spouse is going out of their way to annoy you. Remember, you were in love with your spouse once, and vice versa. Your spouse is probably not getting up in the morning with the express intention of doing things that drive you crazy..

It will be best to handle this carefully because you want to make sure you are not taken advantage of by doing all of the chores.

Go ahead and do t heir chore for the day without being asked, see how happy it makes them!.

There are good reasons you need to do that. Among them are that you should always focus on behavior that you do want, not on behavior that you don't want. And everyone responds well to being appreciated.

Golden Rule # 4, remember why you fell in love in the first place.

If you like you can do this by focusing on a fun date or some quality alone time where you don't talk about kids, house repairs, bills or whatever else is a stress in your marriage.

Golden Rule # 5, commit to at least one act of emotional or physical intimacy a day.

You might do this by greeting your spouse with a ten second kiss instead of a hurried peck on the cheek, or by packing a love note in their lunch bag or purse. This might make a difference to you personally since it . This may entail .This could be really critical since it may have been a long time since you actually put intimacy in your marriage on the top of your to do list for the day.
