In the beginning of the week, we asked, “In just a few words, what is the key to maintaining shalom bayis in a marriage?”
The complete answers can be found here: shorturl.at/gmB46
There were so many good ones, but here are the top 10 I decided to share:
- Make your relationship with your spouse your number one priority.
- Focus on giving because the more you give someone, the more you will love that person.
- Don’t criticize. Accept your spouse for who they are, knowing we can only work on ourselves.
- Be present with your spouse and try to understand them.
- Choose to be happy over being right.
- Sometimes it’s not what you say, but how you say it.
- Each day, give your spouse quality time, appreciation, kind words, expressions of love and always be willing to compromise.
- Respectful communication in conflict resolution – A successful relationship is not marked by the absence of conflict but rather by the successful resolution of conflict.
- A wife should treat her husband like a king and a husband should treat his wife like a queen. They will then have a royal marriage.
- When dating, it’s all about making the right choice. When you’re married, it’s all about making the choice right. Marriage takes effort, but it’s so worth it.
And of course, daven for shalom bayis!

Sorry, but I can’t help noticing you’re using so-called “woke,” politically-correct grammar in your use of pronouns.
For example, “Accept your spouse for who they are.”
Unless your spouse has multiple personalities, the proper reference is “he is” or “she is” or “he or she is,” not “they are.”
This is part of the Left’s anti-Torah campaign to erase the lines distinguishing the genders and eliminate the concept of gender altogether.
Until recent attempts by so-called progressives to re-write the world as Hashem created it by re-writing language, it has been considered incorrect English.
By refusing to succumb to this latest nonsensical trend that has permeated our culture on all levels, you will be making a pro-Torah political statement and doing a Kiddush Hashem.
😄 I am definitely not woke. I’ll just have to work on my grammar. Totally unintentional. Thank you for pointing that out.
I didn’t think it was intentional.
That’s another way the Left (and the yetzer hara) try to get us ensnared, by making it seem so commonplace that we think it’s “normal.”
p.s. Thank you so much for doing what you’re doing. It is such a blessing to get this chizuk every morning!
