Quite happy to admit to them all fitting that description, with the rare exception that may be merely uninteresting.

From your side, or her side, or both?
Both.

Me when she's too "skint" to go equal on rent/ mortgage but can afford a couple of trips to Topshop/Kurt Geiger each week...

Her when I suggest that as I earn more & pay more I can enjoy this money in its 4wheeled format.

Lest we forget that her daily drive is actually.............. Well mine

Not having a go, not taking the piss.

You're doomed unless you both sort that now.

Good-o! I thought for one heart-stopping minute that you were one of those unutterably unbearable bores who think that they only post riveting written gold.

Karak: tried replying the saw we'd been volumised.

Alas: I get your point loud & clear, and fully concur.

Rental is a no go as its dearer than buying around here.

Her income is fixed at £nexttofkall until she can get the teaching qualification finished.

This meaning that it'd fall to I to bust some bks and source extra income... In turn this becomes either:

A) the motivation I need to really get stuck into my "career" and earn more

Or

B) a ball & chain of pressure around my neck causing me to resent the fact that I'm paying more into this affair by a factor of 200% than her. Thus tearing our relationship apart
I wouldn't stress about it right now... like I said take some time to enjoy the good stuff you've got going on now and see how things progress. If work goes well and you find yourself with some healthy spare spondoolicks then work out what you want to do vis a vis living and paying etc then.

Life will throw plenty of dramas your way without you going out of your way to find them.

I have a feeling it was built by Barratts. I think that's how it started off, but as the original inhabitants have aged and become 'crispy', families have moved in. A lot of people that live here walk/cycle to the train station for work in central London etc. It used to have walls/pillars on either side of the turning from the main road at the top of the hill, but I think they removed those when they started building smaller houses down at the bottom of the hill.

JAYB: which bit? Re: sorting it now


KaraK: perhaps you present a very valid point.

Normally I'm not a house man, I.e I don't mind what they're like. But this one has been on t'market for 6months (first sale fell through) and we've been after it all that time.

Plus living at home is causing problems big time.

Ah well, bye bye Mondeo hello CTR or Impreza sti

I nearly fell asleep on the drive after a phone call I took out there because signal is so patchy in the house. It's so sunny, so warm, so niiice.

Good God, whose hellhole have you parked at?

That looks like some awful 60's estate.
He's waiting for you to get home?
It's just I always imagined him somewhere, well, how do I put this, less sloping drive and visible neighbours, if you know what I mean.
You slopist!!!

If there is resentment over who pays for what and what each of you does with your own money.

It's a niggle that will just keep getting worse.

You're either a partnership, or you aren't.

Make up your minds.

I've got to agree with Cheryl Tweedy here: Lop-sided financial arrangements never work out well.

There speaks an aged voice of wisdom & experience smile

For me there's no resentment, but I can stand "faux skintism" from her, I.e. I'm paying more of the mortgage due to her being "skint" but then 3 days later she's got a new phone/shoes at £150/booking boutique hotels etc.


As for her, it'd kick in when I spent it on cars.

Off topic: ANYONE WANT TO BUY A SIX FOOT ARTIST EASEL, or six???

I am not so sure about that. It very much depends on how you see the whole relationship. If you start going down the track of 'my money' either out loud, or in your head, then that's the point when the end is sight.

My potato wedges could have done with a little bit longer in the oven.

And I've dripped baked bean juice on my T-shirt.

Better?

Me & her contrast wildly on this due to family backgrounds I suspect:

I'm a case of what's mine is ours, just the way it is. Same as my parents are.

She's from a family who NEVER discuss money ... It's the most taboo subject on earth. So what's hers is hers and I should never know what she has, owes or spends!
