DEAR DEIDRE: I’M stuck with a man who is rubbish with money and, to be honest, rubbish with life.
I have to sort our finances out while he gambles online.

We have been due to get married for nearly nine years and have an eight-year-old son.
I want more security now but my partner keeps making excuses for why it’s not the right time to buy a house or settle down.
I’m 32 and he’s 35. He has moved from one job to another and I have pleaded with him to stop gambling and pay off his debts.
But he either shuts down or starts yelling at me and points out all my faults. He loves spending on things we don’t need. I love him but I can’t take any more.
DEIDRE SAYS: Start with a heart-to-heart talk. Tell him you love him but this can’t carry on. What started him gambling?
Does he feel he can’t cope with the pressures of life? Is he feeling depressed? He has to decide what is important to him. Is it you and your son or the freedom to drift through his life?
He, and you, can find help through GamCare (gamcare.org.uk, 0808 802 0133). My e-leaflet Dealing With Debt can help too.
