These tips will help each of you give your best to each other.

Most of us, especially if we’re parents, might be surprised to learn that we should put our spouses first — even before our children and our jobs. Work is necessary for putting food on the table … and our children seem to be the top priority, right?

“The spouse is the most important thing we have to take care of, ahead of our children, our work, our parents and our friends,” says author Nuria Chinchilla, who maintains that when it comes to uniting all aspects of our life, our spouse must take the top spot. When spouses help each other and care for each other, that synergy can take care of all the rest: illness, economic difficulties, kids … We even become more productive at work!
