How can I make my "fiancé" contribute to the household before he loses me and the cash flow?

You have a conversation with him. And if he can't have that conversation respectfully, then I wouldn't be taking that relationship any further.

Just giving back the ring is an empty threat. If you are at the stage where you can't discuss this without screaming at him and threatening to leave, then it is time to actually follow through. If you DO wish to make attempts at saving the relationship, perhaps try some counselling, but it really doesn't sound like you are working together to build a future.

I've talked to him and screamed and him and have given him back his ring.. All to no avail. We've known each other since we've been 5 and 6. I am now living with him as I remodel my house so I can move back into it. I feel like he's come to realize that I'm building a life based on hard work and pride and he has none of those qualities.
