So my partner and i have been together for a little over 2 years. we have a son together (2 months old) and he has a son with someone else and he is 5 years old. we are both in our mid twenties and work was fine before the Covid shock. i was a full time teacher and his work in a salon was great. i earnt more than him but he always paid his part. i receive a bit of help now from the country we live in but it only covers nappies, wipes and 2 weeks worth of food for one month. i spend 40 euros for food a week on 3 people. when his mum found out she was very shocked and asked how.
