    HOW TO MAKE HIM RESPECT YOU

    You don’t often come across articles on how to make a man respect you. Do you? But there are unlimited books and articles on how to make a man love you or love you more. This is because we’ve been fed with the stereotype that ‘men want respect, women want love’. There are even a bunch of books bearing that title. I don’t know about you, but for me, there’s no love without respect. I feel loved and honoured when I’m respected. Why do you need to know how to make him respect you?

    Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Do a Pre-Wedding Photo Shoot

    Love is beautiful, and weddings are a celebration of love. Pre-wedding photo shoot has recently become a trend and now it seems a wedding is not complete without pre-wedding photos to grace our eyes.

    One Thing You Need to Stop Doing in Your Relationship to Be Extremely Happy

    I remember feeling offended by what hubby said one day. So I got moody, gave laconic replies to his words, and frowned all over the place. In my mind, I expected him to know that I was hurting, so I went on like that for hours while he carried on normally. He probably thought I wanted to be calm that day. Then I remembered teaching at Sunday school that assumption is the lowest level of knowledge and a precursor to poor communication. I put my teaching into practice and told him we needed to talk. I poured out my mind to him, he did the same, and we were able…

    8 Things Never to Say to Your Partner During a Quarrel

    Conflicts are normal occurrences in every relationship/marriage. Conflicts cannot be prevented, they can only be managed. One of the ways to manage conflicts is not to say things that could hurt your partner in ways that will do an irreparable damage to your relationship.

I learnt this the hard way, and I shared my story here. It is usually hard to set things right after saying mean and hurtful things to each other during a fight. It is better you do…
