I know it sounds cliche' but it's true, and so important. It's the one piece of advice I ALWAYS give to new couples.
ALWAYS KISS GOODNIGHT!

No matter what, even if you hate your spouse with every ounce of your being that night. KISS. It can be a quick peck or a deep romantic, beautiful, lingering kiss. Just never forget.
I just celebrated my ninth anniversary in December and we still follow this rule. The only time we don't kiss? When one of us is sick, of course. In sickness and in health does have it's limits!
Why is this important?! Intimacy. We all have such busy lives with work, kids and other responsibilities that we sometimes forget to slow down and just make time for each other. If nothing else, have this one little bitty thing, every night.
I have no hesitation when I say this, kissing goodnight, every night, has been an important part of making my marriage the happy marriage it still is today.
