Remember it is your choice to be in love with him.
These factors to consider include:
1. Be sure you want to be a part of his instability.

2. Does he discuss his financial plans? It is okay to discuss finances in a relationship, this helps bonding and builds trust. Is he trying to improve his financial situation? Or does he want to start his own business?
3. Your own finances: First you have to be sure that you can handle an extra cost in your financies. You also want to double check if you are okay with giving him [your] money and sharing your things. This is because love shares.
4. Ask the reason he is broke: Is he in need of a job? or he is just being lazy? Investigate him to get the answers to these questions. What expenditure takes the most of his earnings [if he has a job]Be sure!
Note that he would probably be moody all the time: No one is happy when things are not working out for them.
