He Wants His Wife to Loan Him 14k, but He Won’t Even Tell Her What It’s For

A married woman stirred up suspicion and outrage on Reddit when she agreed to loan her husband a big chunk of money. But her deal came with conditions that he wasn’t too happy about. Here is the full story.

He Brought a Lot to the Marriage

OP is a 36-year-old woman who has been married to her 42-year-old husband for two years.

She has never been married before, but he has 6 kids with two ex-wives.

Before they got married, OP’s future husband told her he wanted to keep their finances separate.

That was great news to OP, because she had seen him struggle with money all during their relationship.

The husband’s reasoning for the money split is that he has to support his kids and needs full control over his finances.

OP thinks he’s overblowing how much the kids really cost him.

At any rate, OP and her husband take turns paying for their joint expenses.

While they have been married, OP has built her savings to about $20K, while her husband is always running on empty.

OP has noticed that her husband has been struggling with money more than ever lately.

He has borrowed money from several people, including $4000 from her own brother.

When OP asked him what was going on, he just told her that he needed the money for the kids because they’re so expensive.

OP still doesn’t buy that answer, but she doesn’t have any real proof otherwise.

But then OP’s husband came to her and asked for a loan.

He needed $14K, he said, and wanted her to transfer the money from her account into his.

OP again asked him what he needed the money for, and this time her husband said it was none of her business.

He just promised that he would pay it back as soon as possible.

OP thought about it for a minute, then told her husband she would loan him the money. But she said there would be a condition.

In particular, OP wanted to draw up a contract with a lawyer and have her husband sign it.

She wanted his promise in writing that he would pay back the loan in full, and with some time limits in place.

When OP’s husband heard her conditions for loaning him the money, he blew up!

He accused her of not trusting him and said that she should just transfer the cash since they were family.

OP’s husband went on to say that she knew he was struggling, and now she was just making everything even worse.

She was his wife, he said, and should try to make his life easier, not harder.

But OP stuck to her guns and said that they had to have a contract in place before she’d transfer any money to her husband’s account.

The next morning, OP’s husband asked her for the money again.

She repeated that she would loan it to him, but only if they had a contract.

Frustrated because he wasn’t getting what he wanted, OP’s husband stormed out of the house and wouldn’t answer her calls or texts all day long.

When he got home that night, though, he asked her for the money again.

OP tried again to get her husband to tell her what he needed the cash for.

He said she didn’t need to worry about it, so OP told him that her offer still stood – with the condition.

At that point, her husband left the house again and didn’t come back that night.

Now OP wonders what he’s really up to and is worried about her marriage.
