Well, it might seem hard, but Romanian (and several other Balkan languages) works this way: Let's say we have a sentence like 'I give 10 euros to my mom '
In Romanian, you always start with the shortest possible way: 'i give them her'. This is the basic part and it is obligatory. It also provides the first basic grammatical information: that the object that is given is something in plural and that the receiver is feminine singular. You can't get around that.
Then you can choose to extend it, by explaining what you mean by 'them' (the object that is being given, so accusative 'pe') and what you mean by 'her' (the receiver, with dative).
Is it complicated? Maybe. But it requires you to be very specific and clear. English works very different. I speak several languages and English is by far the most ambiguous.
