I was married for 9 years to a nice man…but he didn’t make that much money. I was always the one to have to make ends meet. We have since divorced and I have met a very nice man…but like my husband he doesn’t make that much money either. He talks about getting married but I have a fear I will end up in the same type of situation…which is feeling the pressure of always being the one to pay the bills.
I don’t want to end the relationship but I don’t want to end up where I was before.
What should I do?

In a way I think you answered your own question. You don’t want to be in a similar situation. So don’t! Continue to see him and maybe let him know you also want to start dating other people. I think in time you will figure out what is best for you.
Let me know how it all turns out!
