If you were dating someone (hypothetically) and you eventually found out they used food stamps and possibly other government aid, would you change your opinion about them or possibly even reconsider dating that person?
I know there will be a lot of "it depends" but please be specific with your answers. Be as judgmental as you want.

It would for me. Just hear me out here.
If I was in a serious relationship and I was seriously considering starting a family with this man I would feel a couple things. I would feel betrayed because he didn't trust me enough to tell me about his difficulties at this moment in his life. In turn, this would make me less likely to accept the fact he was on food stamps/other stuff.
Another thing, if I'm thinking about starting a family with this man, specially if we have talked about it before, I would be annoyed with him. I have been on food stamps and I know what they are like and I know they are a struggle. I never would wish upon my kids to go through that in my life. True some people make off well with them but thats cause they probably dupe the system illegally. Otherwise, it's literally not enough to live. Never. Would never cause my family like that or allow something like that to happen whether its food stamps or other stuff.
Also, I would probably not even talk to him in the first place if he did this, but if I found out further that he isn't attempting to get himself up from this situation I would drop him in a heartbeat. If he has no motivation to get up and do things for himself then what can he possibly do for me?
So yes, it does matter to me0
