When my bf meets my mother over dinner, should he offer to pay for the meal when the check arrives?

Pretty simple question.

If yes, should I offer him money prior to going out just in case? I say that because he is in a financial snag at the moment with his home and I know money is tight.

  • He should offer to pay; offering him some money before hand would be nice

    • He should and I should offer money?
      Does that take a shot at his ego or add stress?

  • if you do know its tight for him right now, just dont let him pay. as long as he's not paying, i dont see a diference in you giving him money to pay, or your mom paying. i think he'll think the same

  • It's courteious.
    But it's something he doesn't have to do, she isn't his date.
    as long as he is well mannered I doubt if he pays or not, if that will change her judgment about him.
