I’m 26 and she’s 27.

We had been together for three years but I didn’t want to go “financially official” with her.

I’ve nothing to hide but she is jealous and I knew she would want to scrutinise me.

Our relationship came to a head because we were talking about moving in together and she insisted we pool our money.

When I refused to do this, she said it was the end of us because I was being untrustworthy.

DEIDRE SAYS: Your girlfriend is right in that in order to move in together you absolutely need clear communication, and this includes money matters. Is there a compromise?

You could have a joint account for bills and keep your separate accounts for your own expenses.

Explain to her that she needs to respect how you spend your money.

If you can’t agree then perhaps it’s time to separate.

My support pack Relationship MOT will help you both with this.
