I will break up with my girlfriend because she’s poor
I understand that some people need to vent about financial problems. But it became a bummer whenever I hung out with my girlfriend because that’s all she’ll talk about.
Sometimes I just want to sit and chill after work. I feel like she does this to pressure me into helping her. Sometimes she’ll say “maybe we should marry and you can pay for my tuition” then she’ll brush it off and say she’s “joking”.
I believe she wouldn’t be struggling with money if she stopped giving her family money to help with bills. They’re dragging her down and I feel like she is trying to drag me down with her.
I worked hard to get a full scholarship and graduated and got a good job. I don’t want my lifestyle to go backward.
- You don’t seem in love with this girl, as I read through your text I felt nothing. So better leave while she’s not pregnant and you don’t have responsibilities with this person. Go forward on your path to happiness, wherever it might take you.
- This is the thing with poverty, it is a vicious cycle. What is she gonna do? abandon her family? I understand if you don’t want to help her financially op, but to judge her like it is her fault she is poor is not fair if she is actively trying to focus on getting a good career. Clearly you do not love her, otherwise you would be more sympathetic and this would not be a deal breaker.
