Money Talk Gone Wrong: Her Partner’s Income

When she first met him, she asked about his job and his money, he was very vague in response.  

All he told her was that he worked part-time. But who can afford to live on their own with just part-time work? She looked past it, but it started to bother her as the months went by.

Moving in Together

They moved in together about six months in and split rent and bills, £650 between the two of them. He's had no problems making his side of the payments, but he barely works while she's busy working full time.

He hardly does anything. So, she opened one of his pay-slips that came through the mail. It was shocking to find out that her boyfriend earns anywhere in the region of  £1250- £1350 for barely 20-25 hrs a week.

The Confrontation

She wonders how that is even possible. But more importantly, how is it fair that they had to split the bills when he earns way more than she does? He earns more than she does for full-time work at a minimum wage of 40 hours per week in the UK.

She confronted him about it and asked him to pay more rent, more on the bills, or more towards shopping, but he freaked out and asked why should he? He hasn't responded to her messages or phone calls for a couple of days now.
