“This is why we advise the need to address the seemingly difficult financial decisions from the onset.
Investment plans, yearly and monthly budgets, individual and joint financial goals, allowances and childcare plans, are some of the important conversations to have in any relationship,” she added.
Speaking on the sexual status of many relationships in Nigeria, Sex Expert, Hannah Jonathan, spoke about boundaries and influence, “Most couples do not set boundaries early in their relationship and are easily influenced by work, friends and family, which leads to stress. This stress causes frustration that can cause further issues in the future.”
