Ive been in a long distance relationship with my partner for

Customer Question

I've been in a long distance relationship with my partner for over two years. I never had the opportunity to meet in person because she has been suffering from cancer & living with family at the time being. Consequently, her excuse to not meet with me is because her family will not accept my relationship considering that we are both females. Needless to say, I've been supporting her financially every weekend, because she hasn't received her social security help from the government. However, I feel at times this is the only reason why she sticks around. Although, I do set boundaries for myself, only giving what I can afford to help. Sometimes, I feel obligated to give, but I shouldn't have to do this kind of support to begin with unless we were married or something. Do you have any advise for me? I'm going on for almost 2.5 years without seeing this person. Is this an excuse when I have the means to visit? Please help! jeiy
