Not that it’s exactly rare, but insisting on buying things you can’t afford demonstrates a lack of maturity and a warped set of values.
Are there any kind of laws that would allow the ex to get my girlfriend fired?
She has been extremely careful not to let our relationship bleed into her work relationship with the ex.
When I tell her she can’t spend so much, she takes it as she can’t be friends with this person. The only thing I have a problem with is pretending we can do the same things they can. When I point this out, though, she gets very upset and it just turns into an argument.
I would appreciate any suggestions to help her see my point of view.
