In this article, I will share with you what to do if your boyfriend’s parents are dependent on him.
You have to know that there is a reason why your boyfriend’s parents are dependent on him.
If your boyfriend is their only son who they can rely on then you should expect this.
The moment your boyfriend’s parents can’t clear their bills because of their financial situation they will have to call your boyfriend to help them out.
So, don’t get shocked if your boyfriend’s parents are dependent on your boyfriend.
The only thing you have to do is to figure out how you can make things easier for your boyfriend.
And that is exactly what I’m going to be talking about in this article.
What to do if your boyfriend’s parents are dependent on him
1. Find out why your boyfriend’s parents are dependent on him.
As I told you earlier that there is a reason why your boyfriend’s parents are dependent on him.
If you will be able to find out why your boyfriend’s parents rely on him for anything then you will be able to figure out a way to help them.
But if you have no idea why they rely on your boyfriend you will have no means to find the right approach to this problem.
If your boyfriend’s parents rely on your boyfriend for financial support try to find out why that is so.
The first thing you can do to find out why your boyfriend’s parents depend on him is to analyze their situation first.
Are your boyfriend’s parents capable of handling themselves financially?
Does their situation make them rely on your boyfriend for everything they need?
Are they dependent on your boyfriend because they are using him?
These are some of the questions you should ask yourself if you want to find an answer to why they depend on him for everything they need.
When you come up with the findings that your boyfriend’s parents are poor and that is why they depend on him for financial support then you have the right answer.
With that answer you have, you can figure out a way to help your boyfriend out.
But if there is something that doesn’t add up to why your boyfriend’s parents rely on him then don’t do anything about it.
You will have to talk to your boyfriend to know more before you think of doing anything.
Sit down with your boyfriend and ask him about his parents and how they raised him.
When your boyfriend tells you about his parents you will be able to grasp the full package of information you were searching for.
Once you completely have an idea why your boyfriend’s parents are dependent on him then you can come up with a way to set things straight.
2. Help your boyfriend support his parents financially.
If you found out that your boyfriend’s parents are poor and that is why he is supporting them then you should offer to help.
You have to help your boyfriend support his parents financially if you have the means.
This will be a very good idea because couples should always support each other no matter the situation they are in.
If you find that your boyfriend is not financially stable and his parents depend on him for financial support you should be a human and help him out.
Even if he hasn’t told you that he needs your help, you should do something about it.
Especially, if your boyfriend finds it hard to clear some of his bills.
When you offer to help your boyfriend’s parents financially you will make things easier for your boyfriend.
Your boyfriend’s parents will be so much happy to have you in their lives thus creating a positive relationship with them.
On the other, your relationship with your boyfriend will keep on growing stronger day by day because of the things you do for your boyfriend’s parents.
So, don’t be selfish if you have the means to support your boyfriend’s parents.
I know your boyfriend may be uncomfortable letting you help them at first but you have to talk to him about it.
Let him know that you are a couple and you should always support each other no matter what happens.
Don’t support your boyfriend’s parents behind his back. You have to ensure that he knows that you are doing it.
Doing it behind his back will make him conclude things negatively and this will end up messing up your relationship.
So, if you have a means you should help your boyfriend out. But if you don’t have the means since you are also struggling financially you can still help your boyfriend out.
The first thing you can do to help your boyfriend support his parents financially is to stop spending money recklessly.
You have to stop asking your boyfriend to buy you expensive things every time because his money has lots of expenses.
Also, you should stop using your boyfriend’s money for needs that aren’t necessary so that you allow him to spend money on his family.
You can also help your boyfriend out by budging the amount of money he has to spend on you and his family.
This will make things easier for your boyfriend, instead of him sitting down doing all the calculations take that part.
He will understand that you are helping out even if you have no means to support his parents.
3. Don’t talk bad about his parents.
The moment your boyfriend’s parents are dependent on him and you start talking bad about them this will be the beginning of your end.
Your boyfriend will not be happy with you talking bad about his parents because they rely on him for everything.
Even when you think that his parents are only using him for money, you should come up with the right way to talk about this with your boyfriend.
No matter how accurate you think you are, you should not talk anything about his parents without caution.
We are talking about his parents, this is a very sensitive issue and it can end up destroying your relationship.
I know at one point you will end up feeling that your boyfriend’s parents are messing up with your boyfriend’s money.
Especially, when you can’t get your boyfriend to spend money on you because he is always spending money on his parents.
You will feel frustrated and you might end up talking bad about his parents.
So, don’t let yourself talk bad about your boyfriend’s parents no matter how you feel.
Don’t give your boyfriend’s parents nicknames because of their situation.
Talk positively about his parents and let your boyfriend know that he is doing the right thing by supporting his parents.
If you talk bad about his parents this might end up ruining your relationship with him.
4. Motivate your boyfriend to find a means to help them.
If your boyfriend is supporting his parents financially this means that he will need to work to earn enough money.
He will have to take care of you financially and clear other bills too.
Remember that you also have your needs, it won’t be easy for your boyfriend to support you and his family at the same time if he is struggling financially.
If you have the means to support your boyfriend financially so that he can help his parents that is great.
But if you have no means to support him then you should motivate him to work harder and find several sources of income that will enable him to support his family.
The words you say to him will be enough to encourage him to work even harder so that he can support you and his parents too.
I know your boyfriend has a heavy responsibility, he needs a positive thought about what he is doing.
Also, if you have any ideas about how he can earn money and support you and his parents easily then you should share them with him.
He will be so glad for the ideas you will bring to the table.
5. Respect his parents despite the situations they are in.
If your boyfriend’s parents are dependent on him you should respect them.
I know at some point you may feel that they are too needy and this makes you hate them in a certain kind of way.
So, you should prevent all these negative feelings that will make you want to disrespect your boyfriend’s family.
If you go to the extent of disrespecting his family you will mess things up.
You will get into a conflict with his parents and your boyfriend will never be happy with you.
Don’t be surprised if your boyfriend breaks up with you because you disrespect his parents.
So, you should respect them and handle them nicely when they come to your boyfriend for his financial support.
Don’t do anything that will make your boyfriend’s parents feel like you don’t need them around.
If they call your boyfriend and he isn’t around to answer their calls you should later let him know that they called.
You should only pick up your boyfriend’s parents’ calls if he gave you permission to do that.
But if he never gave you permission to pick up their calls you should not do it.
All these are things that will create a positive relationship between you and your boyfriend’s parents.
Your boyfriend will also conclude that you respect him and his parents too and this is what will keep the relationship going.
If your boyfriend’s parents are dependent on him and you know that your boyfriend is not financial stable you should offer to help him out.
Help your boyfriend to support his parents financially and this is what will strengthen your relationship.
Your boyfriend’s parents will be so happy that you always offer to help them and your relationship with your boyfriend will also grow.
But if you have no means to support your boyfriend’s parents you can motivate your boyfriend to find several ways to make money so that he can support them financially.
Give your boyfriend any entrepreneurial ideas you have to enable him to earn more money to take care of you and his parents too.
He will be so happy about that. You can help him in so many ways as I stated in this article.
The other thing you should keep at your fingertips is that you should respect his parents no matter how needy you find them to be.
I know at some point you may feel like your boyfriend’s parents are too much and this might drive you to say something bad about them or disrespect them.
Don’t do that if you want to keep your relationship going.
