  5. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    True love is meant to be proven and not just to be spoken. Thus, you've got to prove your love to whoever you profess to love by sharing all you have with him or her including your God-given riches, money, time, talent, gift, knowlegde, inspirations, insights and stuff like that. Note: any marriage or relationship right here or out there which is devoid of sharing is not genuine at all. Yes, you heard me right as usual. Sharing is an act of true love. I mean, there is love in sharing. And so, sharing is ever expected of every genuine marriage or any other relationship. (IMHO) in my (honest) humble opinion. ~Emeasoba George
