If he makes so much more money, I think you should discuss splitting bills differently.  If you are roomates it’s fine to split 50/50, but as a couple I think it should be more proportional to income, like 60/40 or 70/30.  It’s just not that fair for you to be struggling so much, while he just stands by and watches.  Would he be willing to do that at all?

I would think if he really wanted to stay there he would be willing to pay the increase at least. I know when I plan on moving in with my SO, he will be paying most of the bills, cause he makes most of the money. Mine will be our savings.

i would let him pick, he can move b/c you can’t afford it or he can increase what he pays since he does make more money. my husband (when he was my bf) payed a certain percentage more than me b/c he made a crap load more.
