Being a carer is affecting my relationship with my partner

Why don’t you try? : Ways to help your relationships

Your partner can be an important source of support for you. If you are caring for someone else, your caring role may affect your relationship with your partner:

* You may have less time to spend together.
* Your sex life may be affected, because you are tired.
* Your finances may be affected, and this can cause worry. (Our information about Carer’s Allowance can help)
