Make sure he feels like a man!
I don’t want to hear it, ladies. Often times, we emasculate men as the first sign of weakness, and that’s not fair! If he insists on paying, let him! Continue to let him handle the things he was before, even if it’s not financial. Don’t assume that because he doesn’t have a paycheck that he doesn’t have balls! Try not to step up so much that you forget your role.
