She grew up rich ... he didn’t

Q. I think I’ve stumbled upon a problem in my once-perfect relationship, and I could really use some advice.

My boyfriend and I are in our late 20s and have been together for three years. We have the time of our lives when we are together, and I care about him very much. However, it’s recently become apparent how very different our upbringings were, and I’m worried this is going to cause problems down the line should we choose to get married.
