A woman has shared how she decided to walk out and leave her husband and in-laws in a restaurant after they expected her to pay for all of their meals.
Writing on Reddit, the 32-year-old woman explained that she just received an inheritance after her mother passed away.
“I keep the money in a separate account as I still haven’t decided what to do with it and I didn’t want it to go to waste,” she wrote.
The woman then noticed that her husband kept mentioning the inheritance money and made numerous suggestions as to how they could spend it.
“Another thing is that he expects me pay for nearly everything the past couple of weeks,” she went on.
But when she and her husband went to a restaurant to celebrate New Year’s Eve with his family, she decided to walk out as she found out that she was ‘expected to pay for everyone at the table.’
“My husband’s mom joked about paying for dinner out of my ‘inheritance pocket’ which made me livid but I showed no reaction.”
The woman continued: “Just silently paid for my own food/drinks. Then got up and made my way out of the restaurant. They were shouting after me like a crowd and my husband tried to get me to come back but I drove home.”
When her husband returned, he yelled at her and said that she humiliated him and his family.
Reddit users were quick to share their thoughts on the matter, with one person saying: “So let me get this straight. Your mother died after an illness and the thing your in-laws take from this is ‘great, now she can pay for everything’. Yeah, NTA [not the a**hole].”
Another said: “NTA. But please see a lawyer asap. After this trick your husband is likely to divorce you to go after your inheritance; make sure your affairs are legally airtight so he can’t touch it.”
