My boyfriend lost his job for a few months. He has also never had a lot of money since the beginning of our relationship, even though he works a lot. He's struggling, has been since the beginning, but is working towards a better future.
It has never made me seriously consider leaving him. He was unemployed and while it put a bit of stress on me I stayed. He's employed again now but I'd still be here even if he wasn't.2

I'm going to disagree with this. Truthfully, if everyone was this shallow and vain no marriage would last unto old age. A mature couple is one that shares viewpoints, values, and most importantly, true and unconditional love. Many marriages do last until death does them part. As we age, we all grow old, fat and ugly. It's just reality, no one stays young and beautiful forever. As far as money is concerned, there are women who have stood by their husbands and family through layoffs, expensive and debilitating medical illnesses, even through drug and alcohol addictions which generally never lead to an abundance of family wealth. If a partner leaves you for a shallow reason due to life's circumstances, then life has then acted as the anvil to test the authenticity of your union. Really it's a blessing in disguise. You find out through your low points, trials and tribulations who your friends truly are, and whether or not a spouse holds real and authentic love for you.1
