I don't even have words for how grateful I am for what you've done for me.

Does your partner have more say than you?  In her article for body+soul Annelis Bos explains how to spot power imbalances in your relationship (and correct them).

"One of the most common power imbalances found in even the most amicable of relationships is control over finances. Financial power imbalances can occur in the early stages of a relationship, or overtime as earnings change - for example if one partner takes time out of the paid workforce to care for the family."
