I can’t afford twins
I’ve just had an ultrasound and we’re having g twins! We are in a panic as we’re struggling to make ends meet already. My husband has s just taken on extra evening work to compennsate for the fact that I will soon have to leave my job. He doesn’t earn much anyway and coping with one child was always going to be hard, but how we stay afloat with two, I have no idea. A friend suggested I could get one adopted but I’m not sure I could go through with that. I’m so frightened. YL FIONA SAYS: THERE IS HELP OUT THERE Give yourself time to think what to do next and talk to as many sources of help as possible, starting with your GP.
Contact the Twins and Multiple Births Association ( tamba. org. uk), a national l charity that provides practical support. I suggest you also contact Citizens Advice ( citizensadvice. org. uk/ benefits), which has a useful section on all types s of benefits. In case nobody else has said it though, congratulations — it won’t be easy, but it will be wonderful! My fiance and I are going for a holiday. He’s worried me by saying as we are not due to get married yet, it should be okay to have sex with other women while we are there. We are both virgins and have agreed to not have sex until we are married. He thinks if he doesn’t get rid of it now, it might return and wreck our marriage. Would it hurt if I agreed and might it stop him from straying later? FIONA SAYS: YOU’RE RIGHT TO BE UPSET I find little here that makes me think this immature man is capable of a loving, trusting relationship; you are right to be uneasy. Tackle this issue now, preferably before you leave, and certainly before you get married.
