Is asking my live-in boyfriend to pay $300 on rent, electric and water too much to ask?

Any roommate situation including yours should involve a sharing of expenses. A 50:50 ratio for 2 people sharing expenses is totally fair. If there is some reason (like a disability) that they are unable to provide there share and you have some agreement that is totally fine, but otherwise... Your boyfriend should be expected to expect to pull his share! Life is not a free ride! If he's not willing to share the load, then it will only cause you frustration and cause a rift in your relationship so it would be best to move on.

If he is working, he should pay something. If he can't pay half, see who is making more and divide it evenly.

If he refuses, find another person to live with.

Absolutely not. That basically boils down to $10.00 a day for the month. I dont know of anywhere you can live much cheaper, plus he should want to contribute. Not expect you to pay his way.

No, not at all. $300 is very reasonably.

I think you're asking for reassurance because you know that's not too much to ask :) He should be contributing and it is okay to tell him you need that help to keep up.
