Forget about the fantasies or mantras you have about a terrific married life. Nothing helps. No scripts will ever work, so stop applying them or expecting things to go always right.
2. Forgive and forget
If you can forgive your best buddies too, what’s wrong in forgiving your better half. Why can’t you let go things in a relation?

5. Be Adaptive
Along with opinion, many things around will change…inside and outside, be adaptive to what comes in. Stop complaining. By complaining you just show your sense of immaturity since the other person won’t have control on any of the natural changes.
