There’s lots of research out there and I do resonate with most of it -based on my personal experiences, professional trainings and working with couples or one of a relationship in trouble.
If you want to stay together below are few of insights and tips that work if you work them- and that may be you are the only one working them – so after some time passage, it may be necessary to reevaluate and reprioritize goals – perhaps while seeing a relationship coach.

- Major differences of opinion don’t destroy marriages, it’s how a couple deals with them.
- Believing and being OK with you can’t change the other person.
- Really knowing each other is vital: Be deeply familiar with each other’s world…and allow your awareness to include your spouse’s world change.
- When fighting, do your best to avoid using the word you and try to use the word I. This makes it much easier to express feelings and much harder to attack the other person.
