#1. Not Caring About Others’ Accomplishments.
You should support and motivate each others’ cause. Being present for your better half and being happy for each others’ accomplishments should be practiced. If these are neglected, then you might have problems.

Not sharing things with your partner and leaving your partner out of discussions is not a good practice to continue.

Any and every decision affects both of you. So, when it comes to a decision, both of you should make it together.
