A 24-year-old man had been with his fiancée for two years, and he would always take the hit whenever there was a bump in the road financially. But it only became clear why when he revealed his secret fortune.
They Wanted to Buy a House
The man said, ‘I recently got engaged to my fiancée after two years of dating and told her we should probably start looking at houses.’
She Didn’t Have the Money
Unfortunately, his fiancée didn’t have the money for a house deposit, but the man said not to worry. He had a lot of money in his savings! In fact, he had over $160,000, which he had never told his fiancée about.
It Was a Huge Amount for a 24-Year-Old
When he told his girlfriend the good news, she was shocked. She couldn’t believe that a 24-year-old had that much money saved. He tried to explain that he’d been fortunate in life, but things soon got weird between them.
She Was Mad at Him
His fiancée was mad that he kept his money from her. But, in his eyes, they were his personal finances, and he was raised to never talk to anyone about the money, unless you’re married to them. The only reason he disclosed it to his fiancée now was that they were getting married.
He Saved Her Dogs Life
The man couldn’t see why his fiancée was so annoyed. Over the years, he had used the savings to help her out. Once, he even paid for her dog’s surgery, which cost a couple thousand dollars, but now she was giving him the silent treatment.
It Wasn’t How He Was Raised
When he told his parents about his fiancée’s reaction, they were on his side. They had raised him to never talk about personal finances with anyone. He also asked his fiancée’s parents their opinion, and although they saw his perspective, they thought that he should’ve let their daughter know when they moved in together the year before.
His Friends Had No Idea
The man couldn’t talk to any of his friends because he felt that the matter was private. It wasn’t something he felt comfortable discussing with anybody else. The man asked his girlfriend if they could talk about the situation when she was ready, and she agreed.
She Wanted an Apology
The man said, ‘I don’t think this is relationship ending, but I know she probably wants me to admit I was wrong.’
He Wasn’t in the Wrong
The man was annoyed because he felt he hadn’t done anything wrong. He had told his fiancée about his finances before they were even married. Plus, she should be happy as, over the years, he had paid to help her on multiple occasions, and now they could put a deposit down on a house because of him.
Should He Have Apologised
His fiancée was still clearly upset, and the man didn’t know how to resolve the issue. Soon, they would be married, and what was his would also be hers, and he wanted her to be happy about it. He asked the Internet for advice.
The Internet Provided
One person said, ‘It’s possible she feels guilty or disappointed in herself for not having nearly as much set aside for big expenses.’
Another commented, ‘How much money my boyfriend has is not my business – as long as he pays his fair share, I don’t care how much he has in savings.’
