I was making more money than he was. So he decided a redistribution of assets was in order. He decided I should pay him an allowance in lieu of his getting a second job. Then he set up automatic transfers from my bank account to his bank account to the tune of $150 per week for the next two years.
What an absolute asshole; hopefully he only talked about imaginary ex girlfriends to make you feel insecure, what a liberation to have dumped him ! Long overdue, no doubt!
