Make his salary an issue.
If there’s one thing a man loves to hear from his lady, it’s her displeasure with how much cash he brings home. No. Not really. That sounds absurd because it is. So is the scene it depicts. Everyone has their own goals when it comes to getting paid and even if the two of you are sharing a common bank roll, making his current earning potential a spinoff of any conversation is not cool. It’s also completely ineffective even if you feel like you have a good point.
