Is it wrong of me to feel that my boyfriend prioritises work over me?

I know my boyfriend loves me, we have a very strong relationship and both know we want to spend the rest of our lives together, however lately it feels like his retail job has become a bigger priority in his life and I am no longer so happy in the relationship.

My boyfriend has to work for us to live (I can’t work due to health issues and am currently trying to get through uni so I can actually find employment.) Most of the money that he does earn from work however doesn’t go towards our financial needs or the future but towards things he wants, or him buying me presents even though I’ve told him the money is more important. Each day when he come home he spends hours talking about work, and he even spends time outside of work playing on discord with his assistant manager.

It feels like a long time since we went on a proper date on a day where he didn’t have to work, or didn’t insist on going into work to talk to his friends even on his day off. I feel like I’m the only one who takes care of the other aspects of our life, like laundry and household tasks, and the time we get to spend together in the evenings is very minimal because we’re both tired and stressed out.

Today my boyfriend got promoted to a supervisor level, and I’m worried that this means work will become an even bigger part of his life and take up more of his time. I feel bad for feeling this way; I know work is a normal part of life everyone has to do, it just feels like he doesn’t manage his time well and I can see it ultimately pushing us apart.
