DEAR DEIDRE: MY grumpy husband wants me to find somewhere to live, without him, after 21 years of marriage.
I’m 51 and he’s my second husband. He’s 49.
We argue a lot. I look after my granddaughter who is seven, three days a week after school and my husband doesn’t like it.
He thinks my daughter should find alternative child-care but she’s a single mum and can’t afford it.
He also won’t help to pay for repairs on my old car yet he’s looking to buy a sports car for himself.
We had one almighty row last week about my granddaughter watching the big TV when he wanted to watch some sport – then he told me I have to leave.
I’m so shocked. He’s never thrown me out before. Is he having a mid-life crisis?

DEIDRE SAYS: He could be, but he may be jealous of the attention you are giving to your grandchild.
When things are calm, talk to him about what is really going on for him.
Encourage him to spend time with your grand-daughter too. Maybe he could help her with some homework or teach her a new sport.
If it’s not jealousy, my support pack Male Mid-Life Crisis may help.
