Speaking

I think it really difficult because when I married I was too young, and I just earn money for myself, not for a family so when our family need money or something or something happen suddenly I can’t do any help for that… the most important thing is communication between 2 person. We need to have thoughts and life. Remember not to control the other one’s thoughts, hobbies and his rights. he can do everything what he wants.
