Boyfriend wants my promotion to pay for his studies and I want to buy a house instead | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: MY boyfriend has started a three-year full-time course and expects me to pay for everything while he studies.

I’ve just been offered a promotion at work, which means I could buy a property with Help To Buy.

I asked my boyfriend if he would be able to contribute to the living costs because I may not be able to cover them all on my own.

He then insulted me by saying that I should be able to cover all costs while he studies as he is boosting his ­qualifictions for our future.

I got upset, so he suggested it may be better for him to stay with his parents, then move back in together when he starts working.

I‘m 26, my boyfriend is 28 and we’ve been together for three years.

He thinks I’m dictating to him when I asked him about working part-time and making a financial contribution.

DEIDRE SAYS: By supporting him you’re financially enabling him to become more dependent on you.

It can be frustrating and can take a heavy toll on a relationship if you’re supporting him when he’s not being financially mature and doing everything he can to help himself.
