I'm curious as to what 'rule(s)' you and your Husband set when you got married.
NEVER say you want a divorce no matter how mad you are unless you mean it.

no matter how mad we are we always say "i love you". that is really the only one we have.
We were together for 8 years before we got married. "Rules" were already established well before the wedding day. Hahaha
I think that is an unspoken rule of ours. I would say for us that was just a given. Plus how bad would things have to be to even utter those words. Shit would HAVE to already be pretty bad before that was even mentioned anyways.

We also have Never Say Divorce...
We also don't spend over $100 on something unexpected without discussing it with the other. This has saved each of us from making impulse purchases that we would have regretted. He doens't just go out and buy a new computer, and I don't just go out and sign up for things from door to door salesmen without being able to research them first. True story... I was so glad I didn't just buy it, because I can buy them 1/3 of the price online.
Items that are typically over that amount are budgeted for. I.e. groceries, new clothes for kids, birthday and Christmas gifts
We also don't cultivate friendships with members of the opposite sex away from each other. Meaning I don't go hang out with one of our guy friends at a coffee shop. This helps us stay "affair proof".
We have sex every week... meaning at least 1 time in a 7 day period, unless there's a serious medical reason not to. Usually it's more often than that, but that's my promise to him. Arguments, schedules, and other bothersome things just have to be worked through and not left to fester.
these are what we easily agreed on
never say you want a divorce no matter what unless you do mean it
no infidelity of any kind, no porn, no looking at others in a sexual way
trust, no matter how much it might hurt the other one always tell the truth
before we act w/o are spouse around we think would we do or say this if he/she was here?
