Ask AJ: Should I Tell My Man How Much Money I Really Make?
They've been together for five years, and he still doesn't know!
"My boyfriend and I have been dating for five years and he has no idea how much money I make. I lie about it, because I know I make more than him. How can I tell him the truth? Is it true that men can't handle this?"
First of all... I can't believe you've been with this guy for five years and you still haven't been honest about how much you make! Money very important in a relationship... if you can't be transparent about it, your relationship is in trouble.
Don't just assume that your boyfriend is not going to like the fact that you make more money than him. I wouldn't mind it at all if the person I'm with makes more money than me. I would welcome it. It takes the pressure off me. So if something happens to my job, it's not the end of the world for both of us.
I mean, what are you supposed to do... take a lesser paying job to cater to his ego? If he can't accept the fact that you make more money than him, than maybe he's not for you!
