3. Everything you said, plus RESPECT.
My marriage recently ended, and trust and respect were the two huge issues that caused me to leave.

No matter how angry you are at your spouse, please try never, ever to lash out in an ugly, disrespectful way. That was a one-sided situation with us; if were were fighting about something, I bent over backwards never to call names or do anything else that could be considered below-the-belt. I was called a "fucking cunt" one time too many (along with a few others things that went dramatically bad, such as being expected to support somebody who wanted to stay drunk all day long).

Trust and respect are vital, and no amount of physical affection or wheedling can overcome a lack of it. :-(
