I have been seeing my boyfriend for over a year now. he's sweet and funnny but lacks ambition. I have worked hard all my life and im going to be a consultant in medicine in a few months time. Im already earning 4 Times more than him and im worried if this will affect our marraige. I dont want to sound shallow but I know finance is also an important part. Or is love enough?
My boyfriend makes less money than me. Will it affect my marraige?

It's only important if it's important to you. Only you can answer that. If you continue to make more than him, you'll most likely contribute more to everything you do. If you are OK with that, there is nothing inherently wrong with it.
It never bothered me contributing more financially than my girlfriend. I made more, but she still worked and wasn't lazy. If she had been taking advantage, that would have been different. But that wasn't the case so it was all good with me.0
Funny, he'd be a "dick" these days if the situation were reversed. All that matters is what you think. He's likely not ready for marriage if he's content not really earning money.0
The likely outcome is you will divorce him0
Try to change him to get a better job and earn more money.
But don't say "you have to earn more" because that will make him resent you.
Tell him something like "I know you are capable and I believe in you. Please don't give up I know you can find another better job that makes you more happy. Tell him to work hard."0
Yes. You'll eventually stop loving him. Guarantee it.0
