    Doesn't really seem like a relationship with a strong foundation in trust and honesty if you're hiding things. – Daniel Mar 5 '15 at 17:46

As for the Du'a

Whoever desires the harvest of the Hereafter - We increase for him in his harvest. And whoever desires the harvest of this world - We give him thereof, but there is not for him in the Hereafter any share. (Qur'an 42:20)

Tip: Have patience.

May the creator guide us all.
