Yea, I was about to say that MOST men feel the need to provide for their family, as it is as it is implied by social protocol. Op's boyfriend probably feels like less of a man now that he can't provide for his family and might be ridiculed by peers, especially if OP has a job while he doesn't.
Comment moderated for rule-breaking.Show it anyway
That's pretty low, maybe it's time to reevaluate your relationship
mm i dont think so. my fiance lost his job in january and has been searching non stop with no leads. im the only one working while he does house work etc. he gets down alot and crabby and let it roll off me bc i know its tough for him bc hes used to working. i could not imagine leaving someone for something out of their control.
It's a guys need to be a provider. Telling him that you'll be with him in a card board box would make him feel like he is not doing his job as the provider because he has his girl living in a box. I know it's hypothetical but he just lost his job so that comment wouldn't make him feel better. If she wanted to comfort him, she needs to show him support and reassurance that he'll get another job.
I think he might still be a little angry about his job
His reaction isn't about you OP. He lost his job and can't provide like men believe they should so he's more likely to feel like a failure right now. Dont take it personally.
