Dear Aunty Lisa
My girlfriend earns more money than I do. This wasn't a problem a year ago when we began dating, but I now get the feeling that she thinks she is better than me because I don't get the kind of salary she does.
She got a raise a month ago, which was over 56 percent of the raise I got, and she just shook her head in disappointment when she found out, as if it was my fault that I was being paid less.
We do different things in different industries, and she will always get paid more because of the nature of her job. I thought she understood this, but clearly doesn't.
I don't know if this will create problems for us going forward, so I would like to resolve it now. How do I get her to understand things from my perspective?
