Need advice. Been with my SO for over 5 years, live together and not married.

I agree but it hurts having someone else point it out. What would others do if their SO constantly does this? My friends want to talk to my SO about it but I feel like that’ll come across in a bad way.

I'm trying to understand if I was just spoiled with our past director, or if our new director is lazy... or if it's a mixture of both.

Thanks in advance!
