Live-in boyfriend of 4 years goes on vacation without me...I can't afford to.
When we first met, I had a better paying job and I have since changed careers and it doesn't pay as well. I have been struggling financially for the last few years while his income is getting increasingly better. He is about to take a 3rd mini vacation without me because I can't afford to go. He says he is tired of having to pay for everythng. Part of me understands and part of me thinks what the heck am I doing in this relationship!? If I am forced to get another job and go back to my old career then I will do it for myself and move out on my own with my child. Even though we are not married, we still live together and i feel it should be a partnership and if I have to change for anyone it will be for me only. Maybe it's just my pride, or maybe I can't accept that he can't accept the financial situation I am in. Either way, it is disheartening. What are your thoughts?
