Understanding your partner before tying the knot is a precursor to a successful marriage said lifestyle coach Princess Adaa.
Known in the Show business cycle as De Lady Reverend, the lifestyle coach said it is imperative for potential suitors to spend time understanding each other even before accepting to date or court.
“Everyone has their way of doing things, so the moment you have decided to relate with someone, you should be able to understand and collaborate. If two people have agreed to be in a relationship, they have become two captains in a ship. They must know both of them cannot lead at same time, that is why one has to be the lead captain while the other, the assistant” she explained to Sammy Flex, host of Showbiz Agenda on Zylofon 102.1fm on Friday.
Speaking on the topic “Love with understanding”, De Lady Reverend outlined four points to be considered before, during and after there is a separation.
She said, anyone going into love relationship must first understand him/herself. This she believes will help the two individuals to know better their weaknesses and strengths. Secondly, the would-be suitors must understand who they are going out with, and thirdly, they should understand the kind of relationship they want to have.
“Will it be relationship where both can text and speak on phone for long time, can they continue same even in their marriage? Will it be relationship that will be built on money or sex? Those are some of the things they must understand” she noted.
The fourth point as explained by De Lady Reverend has to do with how the man or the woman should act in the event the relationship or marriage hit the rock. She posited that when one calls it quit, the other party must just accept it and move on in life.
“There is no need for curses or beatings when they breakup. It is true that there may be some investment made during the relationship but painful as it may be, the best advice I can offer is move on, there is life after the relationship. No need to disgrace yourself”.
She advised that people who spy on their partners should desist from the practice as they are only engaging in exercise that will hurt them at the long run.
“Don’t go through your partner’s phone, you will see what you are looking for” she concluded.
