Chan fulfills her own end of the bargain by giving value back to the romantic arrangement in the form of home care and moral support. He makes Reay feel relaxed and supported in the house.

"After meeting Ed, he told me he wanted to provide for me. We have a 100/100 relationship - he provides financially, and I give him 100 percent when it comes to support and love and little things like bringing him a smoothie after a stressful day.

No Right, No Wrong

The 27-year-old revealed there's no manual to running a relationship and no right or wrong. The most important thing is that the values of the individuals involved align and grow from there.
