I'm struggling lately with selfishness.
It's causing somewhat of a problem in our relationship, and I'm trying to figure out how to cure myself.
Here is the problem: I come into the relationship with savings. D comes into the relationship with slight debt.
We are not married; we cohabitate. From square one, expenses have been divided down the middle. We have a joint account from which we pay the rent, groceries, and other bills, and each month we contribute equal amounts to the account.
Over the last two years, I have found a way to support myself through school. Over the next four years, I will be paying for all of our joint expenses while he goes to school.
I sort of wish my savings would go away so that we would be on par, but I worked hard to save all of that cash.
He's just walked in the door. I can't work on this now.
