It is important to remember that the main goal of marriage should be peace and happiness. So, while this list below may seen daunting, always remember that. If life is stressful, then work on changing your perception. You can see peace instead of stress. You are only one thought away from a peaceful life. If you feel unhappy, seek the things that will fulfill you in life. Just be happy. The simplest route to something is to just be. The only person you can change is yourself.
Also, while both the husband and wife should take responsibility for their part in a marriage, below are ten mistakes common to men. Read on to learn about the behaviors of men which can completely destroy a marriage.
. . .
1. Leaving Her Alone
One of the quickest ways to destroy your marriage is to leave your wife alone. This means things like spending long hours at work and following it up by a beer or several afterward with the guys. Then, when you get home, you don't engage her or your children. Instead, you lose yourself in baseball or computer poker. Also, on the weekends, you'll complain about the messy house, then leave to run errands, and then you don't come back for several hours.

2. Not getting Close Enough
. . .
2.5. Closing Yourself Off to Her
. . .
4. Never [or very rarely] Saying "I'm Sorry."

8. Getting Lost in Bitterness and Anger

Yeah, would Donald Trump would have a model wife if he were poor? Anyways I wasn't insightful enough to see that, a woman told me that once and I happen to agree with it.

Maybe I misconstrued the post I was replying to.
When I used "model" I was meaning ideal--particularly in terms of relationship variables and behaviors e.g. communication, humility, appropriate selflessness, kindness, thoughtfulness etc.
I think I've always looked more at a woman's inner qualities than her bazoobies . . . at her eyes more than her rear.
Those kinds of comments usually give away the speakers lack of experience in long term relations and marriage.

Why is it always the men's fault? It's like almost damn near every relationship advice column blames the man...
No! Screw that noise!!!
