My girlfriend has been cheating on me ever since she had our daughter
DEAR DEIDRE: EVER since she had our daughter my girlfriend has been cheating on me.
I am a guy of 20 and she is 19. We have been together for three years.
Our daughter was born seven months ago and I know my girlfriend has cheated on me since.
I hate myself because I still love her and I want to stay together for our daughter.
We are always arguing.
She says she’s bored and she blames me for forcing her to cheat.

DEIDRE SAYS: If only for your daughter’s sake, keep trying. Say cheating is out but do share the hands-on parenting and help organise babysitting so you can go out together, and encourage her to meet other mums and babies in the day.
You can both find support through Home-Start, which helps struggling families that have young children (home-start.org.uk, 0800 068 6368).
