You're fully aware that meddling in-laws, money troubles and even your (usually) sweet children can wreak havoc on your relationship. But the things that can really drive a wedge between you and your husband might be much more subtle. Before blaming the classic culprits, learn how to recognize these unexpected instigators of marriage distress and minimize their potential effects. Photo by Getty Images 

1. Digital Communication 
Sending texts, emails and Facebook messages can be faster than sitting down for a face-to-face conversation. But an Oxford University study found that couples who talk more through digital channels are likely to be less satisfied with their relationships. It could be because technology strips away the emotion that comes with communicating in person. "The further you get from expressing yourself fully, the more room there is for couples to miss each other," says Jenev Caddell, PsyD, founder of My Best Relationship Psychological Services, PLLC. Be sure to balance the occasional "thinking of you" text with face time, especially for pressing concerns. 

2. On-Screen Romances 
Can't get enough of fictional couples in movies and TV shows? That actually may distance you from your spouse. Research has shown that marrieds who believe strongly in TV depictions of romance are less committed to their current relationships. Despite rocky times for sitcom and romcom twosomes, viewers come to expect roses and adventures as everyday treats from their spouses, which just doesn't happen. "They remove themselves from their own reality," Dr. Caddell says. Using storylines as inspiration to try something new together can be wonderful, as long as you remember real relationships don't operate exactly as scripted ones do. 

3. Poor Sleep 
Getting enough rest is a health must-and maybe a marriage must, too. A UC Berkeley study revealed that couples engage in more intense spats after a bad night's sleep. "If you're sleep-deprived, you have poor concentration and can't think clearly," says Leslie Becker-Phelps, PhD, psychologist and expert for WebMD's Relationships and Coping Community. So it's no wonder difficult discussions can turn ugly. If things get heated with your partner, own up to feeling more tired than usual. Then, readdress the issue after you've had some decent shut-eye.

No matter where you're planning to go,on vacation read this before you book:

1. Max out your rewards
You will likely use your credit card for some or all of your vacation expenses, so go to CardHub.com to compare cards and apply for the one that gives you the best rewards on travel deals. 

2. Visit Groupon
Even if you don't book your trip through Groupon.com, the site is a great place to bargain-hunt for activities. "I once signed up for Groupon in Maui before a trip and purchased an underwater 'Snuba' adventure that combined snorkeling and scuba diving at 70% off the original price," says Lissa Poirot, editor of the family travel planning site FamilyVacationCritic.com. 

3. Snag old-fashioned coupons
Official state welcome centers, which are often located on highways as you enter a new state, offer racks full of coupon booklets that contain great discounts on entrance fees for local attractions, restaurants, motels and more. . 

Theme & Amusement Parks
Between the cost of admission and the price of food, drinks and extras, these venues can be money pits unless you plan ahead.

4. Clip cyber coupons
Visit RetailMeNot.com, which is not just for shopping. "It also serves as a deal aggregator for tours and attractions like amusement parks," says Poirot. Go to the "Browse by Category" tab and click on "Travel" to explore the savings, or search specific destinations.

5. Find deeply discounted tickets
Heading to Orlando, FL, the amusement park capital of the country? UndercoverTourist.com offers breaks on 49 Orlando-area attractions.

6. Pick a BYO park
They may not advertise it, but many parks allow you to bring in your own food, which can save you hundreds. Check the park's policy before visiting.

7. Team up with your neighbors
There's savings in numbers: The roller-coaster lovers' mecca Cedar Point in Sandusky, OH, for example, offers $37 tickets to members of groups of 15 or more. That's a savings of $17.99 per person off the individual price at the gate. See if you can team up for a group rate at the park of your choice.

8. Stick to local attractions
Choosing a park close to where you live will reduce your travel costs, and many smaller regional parks can be surprisingly wallet-friendly. For instance: Quassy Amusement Park in Middlebury, CT, touts "Big thrills for a small price" every Friday evening when rides, hot dogs and sodas go for just 50¢ each. On Saturday nights the historic park offers a $35 carload rate, which includes access to all rides for up to 10 people per vehicle until 10 P.M. 

National Parks
With reasonable admission prices and the option of affordable camping, national parks can be an economical outdoorsy getaway.

9. Buy an annual pass
The entrance fee at the superstar parks (Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Yellowstone) is $20 to $25 per car. Visit more than three of them in a year, and an America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass ($80; Store.USGS.gov/Pass/Index.html) pays for itself. Even if you're not trekking to the biggies, the pass is good at more than 2,000 national parks and forestry service sites. And if you're in the military, you and your family may qualify for a free pass!

10. Stay smart                                                                                                                                                                                        Some hotels and lodges near national parks provide park entrance passes for guests. Teton Springs Lodge & Spa in Victor, ID, for example, offers a two-night package with free entrance to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks (a $25 value per vehicle, per day). Ask before you book.

11. Mark your calendar
Entrance fees will be waived on various public lands for 13 specific days in 2013, including August 25 (the birthday of the National Park Service). Check out NPS.gov to find out the days the National Parks are free. 

Educational and Cultural Trips 
Sure, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Boston are famous cities for culture. However, if you head to smaller places like San Antonio or Little Rock, AR, you'll find the arts are flourishing but tickets, room rates and menus are less pricey. Indianapolis, for example, boasts a newly opened car-free Cultural Trail, with stops at the NCAA Hall of Champions Museum, the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, and the Rhythm! Discovery Center, where kids can bang away on dozens of percussion instruments in special soundproof rooms. All of these stops on the trail cost $10 or less for adults and $6 or less for kids.

12. Become a member 
"You can often use your local memberships for discounted or free entry to museums across the country," says Mary Solio, creator of the budget family travel blog TheWorldIsABook.com. Visit ChildrensMuseums.org, and ASTC.org for a list of museums and science centers that offer these reduced rates.

13. See what's free 
Check out MrFreeStuff.com to plan your itinerary. The site lists events that are always free, as well as the specific days and times when cultural attractions in 20 cities across the U.S. offer no-cost admission.
