Experts give recipe for intimacy in marriage
“Couples should be open and transparent with finances,” said Mr. Olayiwola Abiola, a marriage and financial coach, while speaking on steps towards achieving intimacy in marriage at Sexitimacy 3.0.
He observed that most couples were financially unfaithful to their partners, which have resulted in troubled homes.
“A man wants to come back home to a peaceful home and spend quality time with his wife and family but not with a cheat,” he said.
He listed ways to identify persons who are financial adventurers, financial wasters, financial nurturers and financially frugal and know their matches.
He urged families and singles to see professional counsellors when faced with financial challenges in their relationship or marriages.
