DEAR DEIDRE: MY girlfriend’s moved her kids in and now there’s never any time for just the two of us.
When my partner moved in last year, the agreement was that her kids would visit every other weekend. But now they’re here all the time.

They say they prefer living here rather than with their dad.
I’m 36, my partner’s 37 and her kids are seven and nine.
She always puts her children first, which she should, but where do I fit in?

There’s never any “adult” time, and so our sex life is virtually non-existent.
We should still be in the honeymoon period!
DEIDRE SAYS: Ultimately, the goal is to be one big, happy family and you’re well on your way to this.
You’ve clearly made her children feel welcome, otherwise they wouldn’t choose to live with you.
Just like you’re adjusting, so is your partner. Sit her down and explain how you are feeling. She may not have realised you’re spending less quality time together.
And she is probably enjoying the fact her children are so comfortable with you.
