In her book entitled Initiating and Upholding an Islamic Marriage, Ustadha Hedaya Hartford says:

A successful marriage is not a complicated proposition but a jihad against egotism waged by mastering the same few “integrals of success” – patience, self-sacrifice, good humor, and effort. All this, in the path of pleasing and obeying, first and last, Allah and His Messenger (Salallahu Alayhi wa Salam)
