Be empathetic and understanding

Live in harmony

Do not think you are better than your spouse

Do not repay evil with evil

Be careful to do what your spouse considers to be right

As far as is possible live peacefully with your spouse

Never take revenge

Consistently do kind things for each other even if it is only one sided

Do not be overcome by evil but overcome evil with good.
