A Woman’s Fiancé Kept Demanding that She Pay for Him and His Friends when They Go out Because She Earns More, so She Got Petty Revenge After a Meal

A 33-year-old woman had been engaged to her fiancé, a 37-year-old man, for 5 months. They have chosen not to share finances, which was a decision her fiancé made. His expectation of her having to pay for most things started to grate, here is what she had to say:

A Raise in Income

The woman received a salary raise that increased her earnings by 30%, resulting in her now earning more than her fiancé. She noticed that her fiancé started using her higher income to ask her to pay for him and his friends when they went out.

Pressured Generosity

Whenever she declined or questioned why she should pay for his and his friends’ expenses, her fiancé would remind her of the 30% pay difference and imply that she should cover the costs because of it. 

Giving in to Pressure

The woman often felt pressured due to her aversion to confrontation and ended up paying. “I’m too nice to say “no”, I hate confrontation especially when we’re at a public place like a restaurant, so I just grin and pay.”

An Unpleasant Dining Experience

One day, her fiancé invited her to dinner with his friends, and she explicitly told him she wouldn’t pay for their food. However, during the meal, he whispered that she would be covering their expenses, seemingly counting on her reluctance to make a scene in public.

The woman decided that enough was enough – “I was fuming inside”, she wrote. “Instead of reacting negatively and losing my temper, I waited ’til the bills arrived (they were already split from the start when we first ordered). I paid for mine then I excused myself to the restroom. I then sneaked out from there, got into my car and went home.”

A Heated Argument

Her fiancé called and texted, demanding to know her whereabouts. Eventually, he returned home, and called his fiancée “selfish, irrational, a cheapskate, and childish for sneaking out like that”. He had been unable to cover the bill and had to call his brother for help.

Her Justification

Once again, the woman explained to her fiancé that she didn’t appreciate being tricked into paying. An argument ensued, resulting in her fiancé storming out of the house.

Disapproval From Friends

Her fiancé’s friends, who had been present during the dinner, didn’t communicate with her directly but expressed their disappointment to him. They advised him to take time to “reflect” on the type of woman he would be marrying.

Empowered Or Guilty?

The woman grappled with conflicting feelings after the eventful meal. On one side, she was proud that she stood up for herself and took action against her fiancé’s selfish acts. However, she also worried that she was blowing things out of proportion and that her fiancé’s requests were in fact fair considering her 30% pay rise. 

Help From The Web

To get to the bottom of how she felt, the woman told her story online, seeking opinions. However, she didn’t realize quite how negatively people would portray her fiancé. “I feel like you’re the one that needs to do the reflecting on the type of man you’ll be married to…”, remarked one critic. 

A Common Perspective

The vast majority of readers shared the same opinion, not only defending the woman but prompting her to seriously question whether she should marry her fiancé. “Why are you marrying someone who insists that his money is his money, but your money is also his money?”, somebody questioned. 

A Very Serious Situation

Many other commenters took a more serious approach to their comments, ensuring they didn’t hold back: one such comment read, “Red flags everywhere. Financial abuse waiting to happen. And being with a jerk who will sabotage you when you have the audacity to do better than him.”

Run For Your Life!

Perhaps the most comical yet dramatic response was as follows: “RUN!!! DO NOT WALK. RUN VERY FAR… You are engaged to a massive mooch who has surrounded himself with mooch friends”, cried an incredulous commenter. “They are a pack of mooches. Why does he expect you to pay for him and his friends because you earn more???? Why aren’t they paying their way???”
