I have been a single Mum to my 14 m/o since she was 2 months old. I started seeing someone in October last year and things are perfect - he is amazing with DD and just a sweet & thoughtful guy. We are moving in together in the next few months which means moving from a PPS to PPP - but DP earns so much that I am entitled to no PPP/FTB & childcare costs will triple. I understand why and I get it (so please no 'your DP earns enough, get over it' comments please), but for those who have repartnered, how did you deal with losing your financial independence? I work 3 days a week, but 70-80% of that will now go to childcare & DDs Dad isn't hugely helpful financially.
Anyway, just looking for any advice to help cope with the pride side of losing financial independence! Thanks
