Keep communication open.....talk, talk, talk about anything and everything, especially any issues that come up between you. Settling differences while they are small and don't have the time to fester can bring you closer together because you have a better understanding of each other.
Accept a person for who they are or move on. You can't change someone to suit you, and nobody is perfect.
Both people in the relationship deserve respect. It leads to the development of trust for a lasting relationship.
