More money, more problems

By Anonymous - 10/06/2021 04:01

Today, my girlfriend of several years broke up with me because of my lack of ability to contribute financially to the life that she envisioned for herself, due to my significant contributions in child support to my ex. She wants a more equal partner. FML

Firstly, kudos to you OP for being a responsible parent and paying child support. second, that's really immature and downright selfish of your ex girlfriend to break up with you for that reason. it's best to let her stay gone - it's clear she only really cares about herself and the money you provided.

Kids grow up, girlfriends grow old. I hope you find a better girlfriend (and a more paying job as a bonus).

op should be proud of the job they did with their kid. I'm sorry it didnt work out with the selfish gf, I wish you the best life ever : )

I'm sorry but I would never stay with a man who couldn't contribute his fair share, especially with all his money going to an ex and child. (Before everyone gets mad, I've always supported myself with no help from any man, always been a 50/50 split) But then I would never have gotten involved with him to begin with.

why's fair share 50/50 of expenses, relationships are more than financial partnerships. actually, the whole point is to support your significant other in areas they may be lacking and then doing the same for you.

I mean it depends on the situation. I’d totally agree with her if it was say the house and the bills and stuff and you couldn’t pay your fair share. But I wouldn’t get with someone who has kids anyway 🤷‍♀️
