    Thank you for the reply

    i only know my partners take home pay at the end of the week not his annual or gross ect so it’s hard to work out, do u know if I’m able to talk to someone in person about this?

    Can I come from a different angle, If you love your partner and he loves you, love outweigh money every time, just go for it.

    there is a benefit calculator on Gingerbread.

    I wouldn’t recommend not informing the benefit agencies, as if they find out, it will make life harder in the long run.

    Happy you have found someone you want to live with.

    forgot to mention, you will save cost on having one accommodation other than two

    We have been discussing this for quite some time and he does understand that as a house hold it would be our money now and not individual

    im in a secure tenancy with a council house and I spoke to housing and they said I don’t need to have him on the agreement which I wouldn’t do anyway

    as for his income he’s more that happy to give me wages slips whatever I need so this can go ahead it’s just working out who pays for what

    ive been a single mum for 14 years and I’m used to paying for everything myself ect

    this won’t be happening till the new year so was just looking for peoples help/advise
