How much is too much?

TQC, I have a dilemma.  I recently found out how much my boyfriend's annual salary is.  It is several multiples of mine.

He has been burned before by women who were only with him for his money.  I am firmly in love with him, long before I found out how much he made.  He does not live like he makes that much.

Now this information is bothering me.  I have been told that I am being silly for letting it bother me.  But now I am wondering if I will be able to separate the man from his money in my mind, because I am very materialistic. 

How much of a disparity in annual earnings would you feel comfortable with?  Would you start to wonder why the higher earner is even bothering with the other person?

Am I being silly?
