A man admitted to feeling disappointed, angry, and betrayed after finding out his wife had been keeping her fortune secret from him.
The man in question explained that he and his wife have been going strong for years despite undergoing some hurdles on the way. He also said their income wasn’t high because he works for a not-for-profit and his wife is a teacher.
The disappointed husband also revealed there were times he and his wife ate nothing but canned food while facing the possibility of going homeless due to their struggles to pay rent.
“Through everything, we’ve been a unit. We’ve definitely had our moments, but we’ve also supported each other really well, I think, in those hard times,” the man wrote in a letter to author and Daily Mail columnist Jane Green.
“I’ve gone to my parents a couple of times for help when things have been really bad, and even though they don’t have a huge amount of money, they’ve been kind enough to help whenever they can.
“But I’m sick and tired of living paycheck to paycheck, so I’ve been looking for other jobs. I love my current role, but I feel it’s time for me to do something that will allow me to give my wife and our future family the life they deserve.”
The husband then explained he was in for a big shock when he recently came across paperwork showing his wife was actually “sitting on a trust fund” worth nearly $500,000.
He said his wife never told him about the money even when they were at their lowest financially speaking. He also admitted feeling “upset” and “angry” that his partner kept such a big secret from him for so long.
“And she’s never said anything about it. I’ve been desperately looking for a new job, and still, she’s been silent,” he continued.
“I know I need to talk to her about it, but I truly have no idea where to start. Deep down, I hope there’s a good reason she’s been hiding this money – but then so many other possibilities run through my head, and I get so frustrated that I can’t even look at her.”
After asking for advice, the man was told it was best to calmly talk to his wife and discuss everything that’s going on in his and her head. He was also advised to ask his partner to be completely honest with him while communicating his thoughts and explaining why this left him feeling betrayed.
