Crunch forces 3.6MILLION unhappy couples to stay together after they have separated
The crippling cost of renting or buying a home is forcing couples to stay living together after they have separated, a study reveals.
The report, from housing charity Shelter, found that 3.6million people have been forced to continue living with a partner over the past year because they could not afford to move out of their shared home.
Well maybe they should have thought a bit longer and a bit harder before they moved in together.
The study also found that millions of couples are moving in together ‘too soon’ for financial, rather than emotional, reasons.
Over the past year, two million people admit to moving in prematurely ‘because they could not afford to live apart’.
Bollocks. Stay at home with your parents until you are ready to move in with someone. Ready being willing to commit to a long term relationship and financially fluid enough to rent or get a mortgage.
Don't have children until you are beyond the stage of petty arguments and split ups.
And if you've done all this and things change in an unforeseeable future, take responsibility for your life and choices.
One separated couple with two children told Shelter they had to continue sharing a double bed because they could not afford to buy two single beds and had no spare room.
These charities don't half come out with some bollocks
