What is the most valuable marital advice you were given and who did it come from?
This advice came to me by my mother in law. She gave this advice to both, me and my husband. She told us that one should always keep quiet when their partner is angry. The silent person may putforth his or her argument later on when their angry partner has cooled down. This really works. I just remain silent when my husband is in a bad mood or angry. And when he cools down he realizes his mistake and also agrees to whatever I say.
Adjustment, tolerance, overlooking faults, glorifying the good points all contribute to successful marriage- advice from my mother.
Mom told me, "Never go to bed angry or you won't wake up happy."
In other words, don't let an argument or strife end your evening.
My grandfather told me to find a nice girl that is willing to be your best firend - she will be the best woman you will ever find.
One of my cousins gave this piece of advice some time back . Never Marry .
dear friend of mine, many years my senior, told her granddaughter .....
"mary some one you LIKE, not someone you love,... spend your life with a friend, NOT a lover,.. you will learn to love your friend, your friend will become your lover,.... the person you love will not sudenly become likable or friendly as if by magic on the day you marry them if they werent before,... there is a BIG difference between loving a man and liking him".......... she went on to explain that she loved her husband but hated many MANY things about him, but because she was of a different generation, you stayed married,... "i loved Less, but i didnt like a lot of him, he was cruel and selfish,... but i loved him anyway"
i've NEVER forgotten that.

Do you get angry if your boyfriend/spouse looks at other women?Assuming he doesn't do it in front of you, is looking harmless? Would you want him to be honest about it if he does or keep it to himself?
