According to Pig fortune prediction in 2020, people with Pig sign of Chinese character will go through a little ups and downs this year. Pressures from work make them breathless, and they are likely to be calculated by their friends and people with vile characters around them, which is not good for maintaining virtuous relationships. Their wealth fortune won’t be very good because of the unfavorable working environment. For the love and relationship, they will become very popular with the opposite sex. However, if they do not handle the relationship properly, they will lead to marital discord in marriage life.

Don't worry. You are born with a good match. In daily life, both of you should show more understanding and patience to each other. On weekends, you can join in more outdoor activities together. This way may improve the relationship.

Don't worry. You treat each other with true heart, and both of you are deeply attached for family life. If adding more romance to life, your relationship will be better.

You are sensitive, affectionate, and generous while he likes to keep to himself, often away from you. But he's a salesman, and can string you along... convince you of anything because 1) you love him, and 2) he knows he can exploit it because he's got the chops. Not a match for certain!
Answered by MM from CANADA | Feb. 16, 2020 06:13

Joyce, thanks for your input. I was just curious to see what ppl would reply and see how accurate this zodiac thing could be when I left out details re: what stresses we have had and the reason for delay in engagement (nothing to do with relationship). Thanks for your attempt, however your reply is certainly far from reality. The fact that you also ended it off with advice, not knowing anything about the couple is unreal.... however just your opinion that came off completely disrespectful.
The first reply based on family was more accurate although realistically could be an answer for most.

Based on the prediction, the wealth situation would become better than last year. You can invest some money on low-risked fields. In this way, you may earn some extra money. In daily life, saving money is also important. Good luck!
