DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner says his will is straightforward – his two daughters will inherit equally.
It has left me feeling he doesn’t want to look out for me.
I’m 59 and my partner is 69. We have been together for nine years.
He has two daughters from his marriage and I have a son. We have separate homes as he lives with his 93-year-old dad, although he spends much of his time at mine.
Marriage is not on the cards but he has said that when his dad dies he wants me to move in to that house with him, though the home will go to his girls after he’s gone.
This makes me feel financially insecure. He expects me to care for him but shows no care for me.
DEIDRE SAYS: Have you shared this worry with your partner or are you just seething inwardly?
Tell him you have something difficult to say. Your relationship and care for him should entitle you to more consideration.
Marriage would mean you were better protected.
If you would prefer that, why not make it a condition of staying together?
