I need to discuss finance with my partner

I opened the conversation yesterday because he needs to see… i work usually however I’ve ended up taking a break again which means no pay or sick pay because its zero hours … i have told my partner that if we live together my job isn’t going to be as secure because things happen… it will mean a lot of pressure for him … i will also be working part time and unlikely to earn a lot… again that’s a lot of pressure on him …

I wish i could just win the lottery sometimes.

Last year I earned 9500 £ not enough to move out at all… he says he’s happy for it not to be 50/50 but I tend to feel guilty …

He got a pay rise to around £64,000 but because of the pandemic hes on 20 percent less than that…

I feel we will struggle and London is not cheap…

A house boughr in 1980s for £45,000 is now £600,000 its insane

Unfortunately London is ridiculously priced.

For rich or for poor as they say. If you enter a partnership those are the rules.

I still live at home … and the only way for me to feel independent is to pay for my own stuff I cant help out much i only pay my mums mobile bill… but right now I’m having to rely on mum having no job… she says its fine but I feel otherwise
