It's always awkward for me. .. I don't think it's fair for him to pay for everything but then I'll offer and I almost feel like he doesn't want to let me pay bc he's the guy and "should " pay... but I don't want him to feel resentful or burdened, especially since last night we took my 2 kids to dinner. Not sure what I should do.

It's very rare a guy feels burdened or resentful at spoiling the woman he loves. If it helps assuage your guilt, let him pay but return something in the form of surprise gifts every now and again - like a new shirt or sporting event tickets etc.1

Neither of us really care for the 'the guy should pay' idea so we tend to split things where we just pay for our own thing or pay for half of the total. Sometimes one of us will pay for whatever it is but the other will always then pay next time and balance it out. It works easily like that.0
