Ever sense Christmas my boyfriend and I have been really low on money and we just keep arguing. Last week I went on a job interview and on the way home I saw my boyfriend panhandeling in public. I don't know what to do. He was wearing his old landscaping uniform and begging people for money and everything. I don't know what to do. Everything is just getting too weird.

When I was your age back in the hippy days that was almost an "in" thing to do but I guess it's different today. A lot of the guys that were in rock groups would also set up on a corner and sing for money. Often they made more on the corners in the day time than they did in the clubs at night. I hope things get better for you guys but don't feel alone or weird. Many other people are or have been in the same boat. Your're not breaking new ground here and with a little luck and work you'll be able to look back and laugh. If you can hang on to love and a sense of humor, the early hard times get to be the "good old days".

I would definitely sit him down and talk to him and find out what's REALLY going on. Because obviously, you don't know the entire story.

Maybe the money situation isnt as good as u think. Maybe you need to sit down and talk. Even if you dont tell him you saw him, I would discuss things. MAybe he needs to tell you what is on his mind.

This is weird. I mean, some people are okay with the idea of panhandling, so it might just be that your boyfriend thinks it's okay. Or he is getting stressed out and feeling desperate about your financial situation.

I would never do that. God forbid bad thing in my life. If he should beg, he should go to his friends and not in the public. I guees your boyfriend is frustrated lol. You must seek the help of a mental specialist before things go hay weird.

did you approach him? could that be someone that looked like him? you should have gone to see him and told him to tell you problems so you both can solve it.
