I’m her 64-year-old dad. My daughter is 25, her boyfriend is 26 and they’ve been together for three years.

During the first lockdown, she asked if he could move in with us. My wife and I didn’t even have to think about it.

We loved him from the moment we met him and he treats our daughter amazingly well.

I know I have to respect her decision but she’s going to regret this. She won’t find anyone else as honest or hardworking as him.

It sounds ridiculous, but it almost feels like a bereavement.

DEIDRE SAYS: You’ve probably grown really close living under the same roof, so it’s no surprise you’re saddened by their break-up.

But part of nurturing our children is letting them make their own decisions, whether we agree with them or not.

Either way, you have to support your daughter. It can’t be easy for her to end this relationship.

And remember, it is your daughter who is in the relationship, not you.
