I am 32 years old and I live with my boyfriend, who is divorced with two boys, in a flat that I have been renting for the past three years. At the moment I am the only one that has an income however, he has been looking for work for the past six months, (his contract not being renewed end last year) sending resume after resume with no results thus far. He has good days and bad days with missing his boys, not being able to afford alimony and not being able to take care of me the way he feels he should, which is heartbreaking for me to see him like this.
I am doing my best to keep us going financially, but I never earned very much which makes it difficult. At the present moment I have so many companies and people to pay off, it feels as though I am suffocating in it all. Throughout my life, my circumstances has always driven me to make some sort of plan in order to keep going, my previous relationship being a big cause of it all, leading me to need to constantly borrow to survive, hence I left that relationship three years ago. In my current relationship my boyfriend does not use up all of our income to sustain himself (he also doesn't have any debt himself), but my salary is just too limited to be able to get to everything with people that I'm owing bearing down on me. I am in need of assistance to get everyone I owe paid off, but I am unsure of how to obtain the help I need, hence I am reaching out to you. I really need to take care of my family which is very important to me.
I have always worked very hard, I have even worked two jobs at one point in my life, but I couldn't sustain the hours and had to stop to prevent from losing one or the other and end up with nothing.
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
