Love is never easy. It's complicated, it's messy and sometimes love just isn't enough. Well, actually most of the times. Once you grow up to be in an adult relationship, you realise you are looking for more than just romance in your partner. Sure, you guys must've had a fairytale romance so far but wake up, darling, it's not going to be the same for the rest of your life. So for you to be relying solemnly on love to make a relationship work is foolishness. Today's query is about a woman who is in love with a man five years younger to her. That's not it. He makes way lesser money than she does. And since she's in love, she cannot help but wonder if she can marry someone who mints lesser than her.

Well, we get it that you're in love but honey, love isn't going to pay your bills. Dating someone with a low income is something but marrying a person who earns way lesser than you is a different ballgame altogether. Life won't be easy for you both because the primary responsibility of handling finances would be totally upon you, since you're earning more than him. If he's five years younger, it's going to take him quite some time to reach where you are financially and if you have the patience to wait, then please do the honours. Is Social Media PDA Really Important? – Relationship Query of the Day.

Please know that we are in no way demeaning your partner or your relationship but it's important for you to have a reality check. And if you still plan on going ahead with the marriage plan, you've gotta be prepared because it's going to be one helluva rollercoaster ride!
