Yeepee! It’s the end of another year. Are you excited? Or maybe not. Did you have resolutions and targets at the beginning of the year? Did you tick them off as you achieved them? Or perhaps you got caught up in a lot of things and you were unable to realize your set goals.
Just as we set goals in our personal lives, we set goals at work or in our businesses as well with our relationships. It only gives us a sense of achievement when we actualize our targets and not just having them on paper. For the benefit of this article, we will be evaluating our relationship goals and appraising ourselves thus.

This will only happen if you marry a man who loves more in the relationship.
So what happens when a woman loves more?
