A young woman unexpectedly received $4 million after her grandfather passed away and decided to stop working and commit her time to her hobbies. But now her partner of a year and a half wants her to pay his rent and share the fortune.
Her Grandpa Died
The woman said, ‘My grandpa passed away a few months ago, and I inherited a little over $4 million from his estate.’
He Was a Secret Millionaire
She was completely shocked when she received the inheritance, having never known just how wealthy her grandfather had been. Plus, she assumed if there was any money after his death, it would all go to her mother. When the money came through into her account, she had an idea.
It Was Life-Changing
The woman decided to quit her job, which she had always hated, and live off of her inheritance. She had no debts and calculated that she could easily live off of $40,000 a year, and she couldn’t wait. The inheritance had truly changed her life.
She Was an Introvert
She was an introvert and couldn’t wait to spend her days enjoying her hobbies, such as music, games, and art. It was going to be incredible. The only issue was her boyfriend’s reaction. They had been together a year and a half, and the money certainly put a strain on the relationship.
He Wanted Her Money
After the woman got the money, her boyfriend started pressuring her to use it to pay for their rent and utilities in full. This totalled around $1200 per month. He also asked her to put money in a joint savings fund. Immediately, she felt weird about this. They hadn’t even been together for 2 years!
It Wasn’t Like They Were Married
The woman said that she would have considered it if they were married, but they weren’t. She told him she didn’t think it was fair for her to pay his half of the bills and didn’t want to combine their finances. It was her money, not theirs.
She Bought Him Something
The woman said, ‘I still pay my half of the rent every month and have started paying for a housekeeper to come in and clean a few times a week.’
Was She in the Wrong?
Because of the housekeeper, their apartment looked amazing all of the time. She told her boyfriend he was being selfish and she didn’t owe him anything. Since she could easily pay for the rent and utilities without ever having to work for it, she felt a little bad and decided to ask the internet what they thought.
And the Internet Had Thoughts
One person said, ‘I’d be very wary of marrying him if this is his instant reaction to your finances.’
Others Had Opinions
Another said, ‘Stop renting an apartment and buy a house (yourself, not with the boyfriend).’
Others Chimed in
Someone else commented, ‘A prenup is a good way to ensure that anything you brought into marriage beforehand will stay yours if you were to end up divorcing.’
A Final Word
Finally, someone humorously said, ‘I have a suspicion the money will last a lot longer than the boyfriend.’
