It is really hard to live with someone.
My boyfriend just got a promotion at work and will be making close to what I make. I did the math and I make 52% of the household income and him 48%.
He is now making a little more than twice as much as he was and is going from 32 hours a week to 40. So, since he is making so much more now, why is he only saying that he is going double his amount for the household expenses?
Why is it so hard for me to speak up and say, “Hey! We should do the math and figure out the real numbers to see if it is fair.”
Maybe I will find my voice soon and speak up. I hope so.
