THE pandemic has left me in piles of debt. Now it’s destroying my relationship.
I’m a man of 44 and lost my job during the lockdown. My partner is 40, self-employed and has received no Government help.
We had modest savings so were refused universal credit. Now we’re broke and must sell our home.
I’m depressed and my partner is virtually suicidal, I don’t know how to help her.
The stress makes us argue all the time. I can’t see a future for either of us.
MARRIAGE-CHRONICLES.COM SAYS: The pandemic has affected the finances and jobs of many across the globe but that doesn’t mean everyone is dying or breaking up.
Please do speak to your GP, and urge your partner to do so too.
There is no need to struggle on alone.
If your partner is feeling suicidal, both of you can call Samaritans any time, day or night, on 116 123.
You need to talk to your partner and support each other.
Let her know that she is not alone and of course, your situation is not peculiar to you guys alone.
You have to be strong for yourself and your woman.
