My girlfriend is filthy rich and one of the smartest people I’ve ever met. I’m doing well for myself, but even if I get laid off I feel safe. Essentially, I just can’t fumble the bag. Am I selfish?

Nah, you are just all set to be a “hen-pecked” husband.. she’ll give you a monthly allowance. nothing wrong if you like it that’s way. But there are some men (like myself) who would rather fight the battle, bring home the bacon and stay independent than be dependent on their spouses for money.

Well... my husband always jokes that I work for fun. So yeah even if I’m fired we’re not going to worry about it. So in my mind you’re not selfish you’re just living in your reality :)

Lol kidding, that would be insufferable. But in all seriousness the fact that you’re asking this question in the first place shows that your p self aware and probably not going to take the situation for granted/be selfish. Don’t doubt yourself! Just grind it out and do the best you can do. If you lose the job, find a new one and don’t lose motivation

She could lay you off as well OP
