Woman says her boyfriend broke up with her because she earns less money than him

- A woman's boyfriend dumped her because she doesn't make as much money as him

- This took her by surprise

- She has shared the experience in a newspaper article

When Simone Paget's boyfriend told her he wanted to end their relationship, she didn't expect the reason to be financial.

Writing on the Washington Post, Simone said her boyfriend no longer wished to be with her because she was too poor for him.

He told her:

I want someone who can keep up with me. Financially. You just don't make as much money as I do.

The US-based Simone explained that while she was making about $40,000 (R540,000) a year, her boyfriend was making over $100,000 (R1,300,000).

She added that the breakup blindsided her because although her boyfriend used to treat her from time to time, they shared costs 50-50. Money was therefore never an issue.

Simone vowed to take a more value-centric approach when assessing potential boyfriends in the future.
