It is important for spouses to remain aware of each other so that any interactions that occur between them are amicable.

Soon-to-be ex-spouses should stay aware of what causes them to engage in arguments so they can actively work on avoiding conflict. Priorities should be established for any business dealings and both parties should work on keeping their personal feelings removed from the situation.
