This celebrity news has us debating on these presidential candidates. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s wife, Melania, released a statement on Saturday, October 8, to address the controversy surrounding the comments he made about women in the newly surfaced video from 2005. According to UsMagazine.com, Melania reportedly said, “The words my husband used are unacceptable and offensive to me. This does not represent the man that I know. He has the heart and mind of a leader. I hope people will accept his apology, as I have, and focus on the important issues facing our nation and the world.”

Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes you may not realize that you are having issues with your partner. Respect is important when it comes to being with someone. You must respect the person you’re with. How can you tell? Cupid is here to help:

1. They put your ideas down: Listening is a big part of making a relationship work. If your partner doesn’t listen to what you have to say and won’t take your ideas or advice over their own, that may be a red flag. Make sure your partner knows how to listen to you.

2. “Pet” names: Nicknames can be cute, such as “honey” or “sweetheart.” However, there’s a line between cute and rude. Never let your partner call you a nickname that puts you down. You are not a title or an object to own.

3. Their needs come first: It’s only right to treat yourself every now and then, but it’s not okay to constantly put yourself before others, especially your partner. You and your partner are supposed to compromise. If your significant other can’t do that, then you may need to reconsider your relationship.
