My boyfriend has always been the provider in the relationship but I just got a huge raise, which now means I make about twice as much as him, which he doesn’t necessarily like. What should I do?
Nothing should change. Don’t change your lifestyle. Let him continue to provide and now you be the saver. There is nothing wrong with you making more. Just don’t rub it in his face, directly or indirectly. Let him still pick up the check. Whatever household bills he was paying before, let him continue. Don’t start trying to out do each other. A relationship is a joint effort. Eventually, he will understand that this is a blessing. Being a man is more than paying rent or mortage. Let him know he is still your king. Don’t go crazy and start flexing on him because you got a raise. In this economy, nothing is promised. This is your opportunity to show him how much you love him and how much he means to you. Money can’t buy love. Ride the wave. Weather the storm and you guys will be alright.
I have just gotten a new partner but they do small things I don’t like. How do I train them to do what I want?
First off, your partner is not a pet. You don’t train anyone to do anything. That would be your first mistake. If anyone should change, then always start with yourself. Change your perspective. It starts and ends with respect. I’m sure you also do things that your partner doesn’t like too. Love doesn’t change the other person. It changes you. Find the good in your partner and focus on that. If it’s unbearable then communicate to your partner what bothers you about their actions but do it with respect. Do it with love. No one likes a complainer or a judge. There is no such thing as a perfect relationship. We all do things that drive our significant other crazy but with time, you start to realize relationships are about personal growth and not about changing the other person. If you can accept them as they are, good or bad, I guarantee you, it will teach you patience and understanding. Those two components are the key ingredients to anything lasting a long time.
