Men and women in modern society tend to help each other with work and expenses, but guys generally still need to feel like they are the provider in a relationship. If a man makes a lot of money, he will obviously already feel good about it. However, if a man makes a modest income while working hard, it is still important to let him know that his efforts are appreciated. Tell him you are proud of what he does, and proud of how he takes care of the people around him with whatever income he brings in. Some guys get embarrassed or stressed about their menial jobs or low wages, but money should not define the quality of a man. Letting a man know that he does a good job makes him feel valued and respected.
