Now then, they have been courting since they were 17, often round our 'ouse and us wondering how it would end. Now at 20 after a year living together (I pay for that strangely enough) , she being thinking to part with him, him not hearing what she says.... much weeping in the small hours... My advice. Move back home and have a year apart. See what happens. Bear in mind he is a lovely boy and he will mayhap find another girl he can like as much as he likes you and will be satisfied, because some males are just glad to have someone to come home to... And that has annoyed her. Apparently that was the wrong thing to say. OK he is not a macho male. He is sweet and kind and can cook really well, and is dead clever also. And loves her. And is drop dead georgeous. But apart from that I am not biased. He is not that tall and his family have financial problems. But I think they are good for each other. But what would I know.
