Having these open conversations before making the huge commitment will help couples feel secure in their relationship and stop people feeling trapped because of money worries – plus help to avoid plenty of bickering down the line!
Couples often shy away from talking about money, but when you are thinking about sharing a life with someone, it’s vital to discuss your financial situation. Whose stuff is it — mine, yours or ours? It is silly to have two of everything, so if you are bringing possessions from two different homes you will need to discuss who owns them or if they become ours.
For example, if you both have a laptop but rarely use them, do you need two or would it be more cost effective to only have the one? If that is the case, who owns the remaining laptop if one person offers to sell theirs? What if we break up? No one wants to talk about breaking up and if you are planning to move in together then it is likely you will not be thinking about the relationship ending.

If you have a problem, email z. Zelda reads all your letters but regrets that she cannot answer them all personally. Will I ever get close to my son? Last year, after his long-term boyfriend cheated on him, he came back home to live with us. We did everything we could to make him feel welcome, but he is so lazy. He has since met a lovely young man. He stayed with us for a few weeks while he was between homes and it was almost like being a family — they ate meals and watched TV with us in the evenings.
However, since lockdown, it has been just the three of us again and we have hardly seen our son. He spends most of the time in his room and barely talks to me. With huge help from us, he is buying his own flat and is planning to move in as soon as the purchase goes through. If I stop trying, I fear I will lose what little relationship I have with him.

If you have a problem, email z. Zelda reads all your letters but regrets that she cannot answer them all personally. It was an agonising decision as we had been together for three years and I really loved him — he is funny, warm, kind and clever — but I desperately want children. During lockdown I was living alone and was so lonely I got back in touch with him. He lives alone, too.
I still love him so much. I keep wondering if I should suggest that we get back together. I also worry about what kind of world it is to bring children into at the moment. However, that primal urge is so strong that even though the world seems so frightening now, when this global threat lessens, you will probably still feel a strong desire to be a mother. Perhaps you are trying to rationalise yourself into not wanting children because you are lonely and still in love with your ex.
He is undoubtedly kind. However, if you did get back together, although you might be very happy at first, in time you could start to resent him for denying you the chance to have children. Of course, holding out for a new relationship is a risk, you might not meet someone else to have children with and at the moment dating is so fraught with complications. Sadly there are also no guarantees that you could get pregnant.
