We like to treat our families to one nice holiday each a year and that is probably what brings us the most joy. I never in a million years thought he would be earning what he is now.

Thinking purely about the money aspect, I feel mixed emotions. Lucky that I earn enough to support us, pressure that I need to keep my job and try to earn as much as possible, and guilty that I perhaps do not give enough financially to my partner.

I’m tempted to fake interest in a relationship with my dad for the money... here's why.

I can’t help but come back to the thought that as he is unwilling and incapable of trying to make up for this emotionally, doesn’t he deserve to do so financially? And don’t I deserve something from him that could bring me something good in my life?

I asked him to go part time too when our daughter was born. I thought we could both do 4 days at work and each have a day at home with the baby and therefore pay less childcare. But he refused. He wouldn't even consider it.

I don't fear for my marriage, but you just never know what life might throw at you. Even if we never divorce, unexpected deaths and critical illnesses can leave a person completely helpless if they affect the bigger earner.
