Relationship between spouses

Q: How should a wife's relationship be with her husband? To what extent should she love and respect her husband?

I have read somewhere that a man and womans relation should be limited because it harms one's iman the most. I don't remember exactly, but it was something like that.

In my life I feel like sometimes my thinking only rotates around him and his little ignorance or bad behaviour or telling me to improve myself (such as hair, weight, accent, etc.) these things make me so sad that I feel difficulty in breathing. I remain sad for a long time and I cannot concentrate in something. I constantly keep saying that he is bored with me or I am not pretty or he doesn't love me, etc. I know I shouldn't do that. But what should I do when I feel bad that my heart starts to ache? 

A: The better the relationship the better the imaan. If the relationship is going to be weak then they will be tempted to be involved in other illicit activities.

Don't pay attention to this.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
