 Yep, how dare I buy them clothes and shoes and food. Such luxury items! Those $6.50 school shoes from Big W are way too nice! Should have just spray painted their feet black! 😂

My husband is a compulsive spender, we had to sell our house to pay off credit card debt, after paying the debt I took 60% of what was left and moved into a rental without him. We are still sort of together but I'm not responsible for any debt that he gets himself into. It's difficult because you have to tell C link if you are dating you don't have to spend nights to be counted as a couple. But it's great to say he can't come over if he hasn't paid his child support.

 I thought it was only if they stayed more than 3 nights per week. I only have to declare if someone's living with me..

 C. Link website says "We don’t consider you a member of a couple if you’re living separately and apart on a permanent or indefinite basis".

Yes. My first love was an LA native, and i live in AUS. We dates for a few years long distance, contact each other every day and did a few overseas trips each. He was a bit older than i was and i was fresh out of school and didn’t have a hell of a lot of money, and he had had time to acceue debt by means of credit cards, car loans etc etc. We would talk about moving to be together but i never actually seen any progress from him. In the end i got tired of waiting for something to happpen, we just couldnt afford to pack up and leave and be together. We broke up 10 years ago and to this day i still think about all the what ifs. Sometimes i wish things had been different.

I have been deceived and burnt too many times in a relationship. I found out a lot my cheating husband after I contacted ethicalhacking618 art gee male dot com . I found out he has been reaching out to another woman and also she has 3kids for him. I’m so disappointed when I found out. So I’m recommending this hacker, You can take a chance to monitor your partner without his/her knowledge to know their every move. No one deserves to be cheated on.

That’s the main reason why I don’t live with my current partner, I can’t afford to loose Centrelink payments until I get guaranteed hours at work. I don’t expect him or want him to support us even though he would and could. Myself having children I wish to keep money separate... atleast for the first few years.
Living together tests a relationship... I don’t want $ to be a factor in that.
