All through, the communication skill was working and Jacky was very supportive. She could even respond to my suggestions, “Yah —- yah —–yah”.
I made Jacky understand that even though she sometimes spends 2-3 nights at her boyfriends’ place, she should always cater for the bills in time and do her part in the cleaning. She asked, “What happens if I go to my boyfriend’s house, —– does that mean that I will have to pay more of the electricity bills?” We had an agreement that bills were to be shared equally between the two of us because we were the only two living in the house. The relationship we initially had was strengthened by understanding each other more through communication.
