Conversation breakdowns are the start of the roots of disrespect and regrets. Dr. Phil's motto for a happy marriage is to ask his wife every morning "What can I do today to help you?" Same thing for the wife to ask, I assume. Simple solution: Never go to bed angry. My greatest concern is the malicious role that divorce can play in breaking a relationship especially with children. No fault divorce puts the onus on the wife to provide evidence in a civil court where the husband is presumed guilty. I have seen serious cases of injustice here.
