"Durban is my everything but my boyfriend wants me to move!"

Relationships are all about compromise, but what do you do when your significant other expects too much?


When you start dating someone, you try your best to like the things they like.

Today on #KeepOrCut, an anonymous listener is having some serious doubts:

"Hey Vic,

I’m 31 years old and have been dating this guy for just over four years now and things are pretty perfect and we’ll probably get married.

But, he has just been offered a job in Cape Town and is keen to relocate. I’m not at all happy to move.

Should I keep or cut this relationship?" - Anon. from Westville
