Radio 4’s personal finance programme Money Box has been in touch - they are making a programme about money and relationships.

They'll be tackling questions like:
Have you asked your parents if the ‘bank of mum of dad’ will help you in getting a deposit together for a home? How tricky was that conversation?

Is there pressure to move in together early in a relationship to save on rent?
How do you negotiate spending and debt issues with your partner?

Money Box wants to hear from people with strong views on the topic. Email them directly on: moneybox@bbc.co.uk
