I'm a little weird here, Hill.

I don't like to apologize.

Now, don't get me wrong, I do apologize, and do it often. However, so do wife beaters.

The solution? Don't do or say things that you have to apologize for.

Don't engage in Love Busting behavior.

When you do apologize, do it sincerely, and do not try to justify your offense. Then, do not repeat the statement or action which you had to apologize for.

Think before you speak or act; is this important enough to my well being that I will stand behind it and not retract? Or is this simply a reactive gesture? Can I change this without making a statement or action which will be unpleasant to my spouse?
