A frustrated woman has asked for advice as she revealed her husband makes her feel like she’s an outsider.
According to the displeased wife, she and her partner often eat outside but the man never offers to pay for her food despite earning a good wage.
She also explained that they split the bills and household expenses while keeping the rest of their respective money to themselves for whatever needs they may have.
The woman, however, believes her husband isn’t treating her fairly and isn’t willing to spend a cent on her despite having no problem spending up to $1,000 on his son’s birthday.
“My business has struggled the last couple of months and I’m in a bit of a financial pickle. I had a conversation with him yesterday about it, explaining the brevity of the current situation,” the wife wrote in her Mumsnet post.
“He then asked his adult child and family to go for a meal that evening, specifically telling me we would all have to pay for ourselves as he could not afford to pay for his adult child again this weekend. Within 30 seconds of inviting the adult child to the meal, my husband had offered to pay for the meal plus petrol for him to get there. I was so annoyed.”
The mother went on to say that just a week before that her husband had spent nearly $1,000 on his favorite adult son while insisting she should pay for her own food despite her financial troubles.
“He does have other adult children, which he does not do this for, and they often are not invited [to dinner]. There is such a clear disparity, which also really bugs me. The day before the meal his other child asked to lend $20 and my husband was ranting about this and refused to lend it. Yet he has spent, by my calculations, about $700 on one of his children in the last two weekends,” the woman added.
After her complaint went viral, the woman was in for mixed responses, and the readers were left divided with some saying the man had the right to manage his own money as he pleases and others saying their marriage was clearly sinking.
“Not to pay for you is one thing, but to treat his children unequally is the mark of a bit of a b*****d, I’m afraid,” someone said.
“Apart from the way he spends and how he disregarded your financial position, the difference in the way he treats his kids is awful and would give me the mega ick,” another wrote.
