Only because you love each other does not mean you two can't have different financial capacities.

You said that you make 20% of what he makes, then the question is that 20% you make sufficient for you to maintain your basic needs? Since you two live together then, another question is who covers the rent? Do you two share 50/50? Or is he willing to take care most of it? Either way, you should have this conversation with your partner, finding out how comfortable you two are with the current money situation.
I'm sure your partner is more than happy to support you financially, even for nothing but just to make you happy. However, you should consider what you can do to show that you appreciate his support. Honestly, to have a clear conversation about money is probably the most important thing you two should do. Just to share how each other feel about the problem.
