My relationship sucks

I met a girl that I truely love. But she is the most controlling person I have ever met. We have been together, off and on for 1 1/2 years. She is 25 in a few weeks, and I am 27. I bend over backwards for her, she is living with me and didnt have a job for the summer(because she works in after school care). She failed to save enough money during her work time to support herself for 3 months while she was on summer vacation. I pay all the rent, all the utilities, all of the groceries. Her dog which I depise had to go to the emergency room and I paid the 800 dollars. Here is the problem. I recently got into photography and wanted to buy a higher quality camera. I had a 300 dollar point and click and wanted to get a digital slr. I plan to do photography as a secondary career, so I wanted to get more than just a small upgrade. When I mention this to her, she throws a fit. I saved some more money and ended up purchasing a 2500 dollar camera without telling her, because I knew she would complain and start a fight. Its money I have earned, I have no debt, my car is paid off, and have money for rent and I think she has no right in hell to tell me what to spend my money on. Today the camera came in, I mentioned to her that I was stopping to pick up a camera I bought, and she flipped out. I love this girl sooo much but I just dont think I can take it anymore. Every aspect of my life, who I talk to, where I go, what I buy is controlled by her. Ive missed family events because she will make plans and wont even budge alittle.

Sorry about your girlfriend. But just be happy that you aren't married yet. So, just get out and move on. I know you'll do better and good luck with the photography thing, plus enjoy you brand spanking new camera
