Leave Your Spouse Alone 

It’s probably hard for many of us to do, but one of the best things you can do for your spouse is to give him/her some space when getting home each day from work. Most people need a little down-time to unwind from a stressful day. Maybe you both work outside the home. Of course, many people now have a business in their homes, so that brings its own set of stressful situations.

Giving each other a little individual space helps a person unwind and mentally regroup to leave the work day behind. This is especially true if you have young children. It’s wonderful for the kids to run and greet a spouse, but then have the kids try to leave Mommy or Daddy alone for 3, 5, 10 minutes.

Having a tiny amount of time each evening to reorient yourself to the day can can add hours towards a happy marriage.
