A woman in her early 30s lost her mother to cancer and inherited a large sum of money. Her husband kept badgering her to spend it, but things went too far when her in-laws got involved. She ended up storming off and spending New Year’s Eve alone.
She Was Young
The woman said, ‘I (32) recently inherited a good amount of money from my mom.’
She Was Saving It
After her mother’s death, the woman kept her inheritance in a separate account as she knew she wanted to use it for something special. However, she had no idea what.
Her Husband Was After Her Money
But it wasn’t long before the woman’s husband was asking about the money. He just kept bringing it up and made multiple suggestions about how he would spend it. But that wasn’t all.
She Was Expected To Fork Out
The woman started to feel uncomfortable around her husband. Everything they did and anything they bought, she was expected to pay for. This lasted about two weeks, and soon, things got really bad.
It Was New Year’s Eve
The woman said, ‘For NYE, My husband and I met up with his family at a restaurant to celebrate.’
She Was Expected To Pay For Everything
The night was going fine. She was enjoying her husband’s family and celebrating New Year’s Eve. But things became awkward when she realized they expected her to pay for the entire meal.
They Wanted Her Mother’s Money
The woman felt uncomfortable. Her husband’s mom kept making jokes about her footing the bill for the meal out of her ‘inherited pocket.’ The woman was outraged but tried not to say anything – after all, it was New Year’s Eve. But she soon realized that it wasn’t just a joke, but an expectation.
She Walked Out On Them
She couldn’t bite her tongue any longer, so she thought it best to exit early. Furious, she quietly paid for her part of the meal and walked out of the restaurant. As she left, she could hear her in-laws shouting after her to come back. But the woman got in her car and drove home.
She Was Pathetic
Her husband got back at 3a.m. and started yelling at her, calling her pathetic for walking out. He said his family had ‘relied’ on her to pay for the meal, and he had expected her to be ‘gracious’ enough to have done it. He felt humiliated, and it was all her fault.
They Hadn’t Helped Her During Her Mom’s Illness
The husband accused his wife of resenting his family for not helping out when the woman’s mother was sick. She said that wasn’t true at all, but he didn’t believe her and said she had caused a ‘rift’ between him and his family. The woman felt weird, they had treated her insensitively, but maybe she was wrong? She asked the internet for advice.
The Internet Responded
One person said, ‘I think you handled this very well. You could have caused a scene.’
Others Chimed In
Another commented, ‘Divorce Babe. Divorce.’
