Beeber, it's good you asked and that shows your ready to learn. A lot of young married people don't look to find ways to help themselves. Yes there is something you can do. You will have to work at it. Take the time to read and learn about what a good relationship looks like. Then give it a try. A start, if I may recommend, is a book called "The Five Love Languages". it has some simple tools, that may help you. There are others but that's a start. Good Luck
