He’s hard on my partner’s career
All I want from my relationship is that both my partner and I are free to pursue our passions, have enough money to live, and love and support each other. My dad, on the other hand, holds firmly to the idea that men should be providers for their partners, even if that means working a job they hate, so long as it’s a high-paying job. And on that note, he’s very confused by my partner’s career path. “Don’t you want to make more money, you know, for your girlfriend here?” he asks.
