DEAR DEIDRE: MY neighbour is getting me down, though we have never met. We’ve lived here for a year and this neighbour moved in next door two months ago.
She lives alone and is probably in her fifties while my husband and I are in our thirties.

My husband has a loud voice. We had a row the week after she arrived and she banged on the wall, which I found so embarrassing.
A week later we argued in the garden about cutting the grass. I knew our neighbour was outside and heard every word.
I am a private person and don’t like the idea of anyone knowing our business.
My husband says he doesn’t care what she thinks but I’m walking on eggshells. We have moved around a lot in the past. I don’t want to move again.
DEIDRE SAYS: The real problem lies in your relationship with your husband, not this neighbour. I doubt she wants to overhear your business any more than you want her to.
If you move yet again, you will just take your problem with you.
Tell your husband you two need to reassess how you handle rows. It need not and should not involve raising his voice.
