If you don’t feel comfortable of your lover taking a holiday trip abroad with the opposite sex, I’m afraid you are not in the right relationship.

Remember, love in this recent age is not the love of our ancestors. You must learn to be independent in any relationship. This brings a sense of responsibility and maturity to the relationship. Both partners can support themselves and aim at achieving greater things with the little they BOTH have.
