Amy loves her boyfriend, but she’s getting frustrated with one of his traditional ways: He insists on paying for everything. It’s gotten to the point where it is making Amy feel uncomfortable and a little independent. They recently went on some weekend vacations and Amy booked the hotels, but he wouldn’t stop asking about how much it was so he could reimburse her. She’s talked to him about it before, and he said he didn’t mind and that it brings him some joy, but is there a way that he could stop, or will that take away some happiness? Is this a normal thing for couples? What should Amy do?
