A woman of leisure riled up Redditors when she found out she’s going to lose her house. She has until her husband dies to figure it all out. Here is the full story.
There’s an Age Gap
OP is a 47-year-old woman who has been married to her 65-year-old husband for 10 years. He recently retired from his job.
They Were Making Plans
After the retirement party, OP and her husband were discussing what came next, and the subject of his will and inheritance came up.
He Was Giving Their House Away
During that conversation, OP was shocked to find out that her husband was leaving their house to his 30-year-old daughter.
She Would Be Homeless
OP told her husband she didn’t think it was fair that she should be homeless after he died. She always figured she would have to live out her days without him, but she at least thought she’d have their house.
It Wasn’t Even His
But OP’s husband reminded her that his late wife had inherited the house from her parents. He inherited it from her.
She’d Been Through Enough
There was no way OP’s husband was going to give the house to her instead of his daughter, who lost her mother at a young age.
She Ran Out of Time
OP’s husband went on to explain that his first wife would have left the house to their daughter herself, but she died unexpectedly before she drew up a will. Inheritance laws left it in his lap.
He Would Take Care of Her
Besides, OP’s husband told her that all of his remaining retirement money would come to her when he died. And any savings would be split between her and her stepdaughter.
She Wanted More
OP wasn’t happy with that, though. That money wouldn’t be enough for her to buy another house plus pay for all her living expenses.
He Was Going to Spend It All
And OP also pointed out that her husband planned for them to spend his retirement traveling, which meant there probably wouldn’t be much money left.
She Gave It Up for Him
It would be tough for OP to get a job, too, since she gave up her career when they got married. She had spent the bulk of their marriage taking care of their home.
It Was an Insult
Now OP was left with a huge gap in her resume and the uncertainty of being homeless as she entered old age. It was a slap in the face.
He Laughed at Her
When OP’s husband heard her argument for why he should give her the house, he laughed in her face.
She Hadn’t Done Anything
He said OP hadn’t contributed anything financially and really not much at all in any way. Throughout their marriage, they had hired housekeepers to do most of the chores.
He Was a Sugar Daddy
OP’s husband also reminded her that he had never asked her to be a housewife. She had given up her job on her own once she saw that he could carry them financially.
He Wouldn’t Budge
The bottom line, her husband said, was that he was leaving OP a reasonable inheritance. But the house was going to his daughter, and nothing would change that.
He Gave Her Options
He finished by telling OP that if she didn’t like how her financial future was shaping up, she should get a job.
He Wasn’t Being Fair
OP knows that would be no easy accomplishment given how long she’s been out of the workforce. And she doesn’t think it’s fair that her husband plans to leave her homeless.
She’s Worried About Herself
Now, OP feels bad because her husband told her she’s been a financial drain. But she’s also worried about her future once he dies and leaves her with no place to live.
Redditors came down pretty hard on OP. Most of them think she’s way off base for trying to take her stepdaughter’s house.
And many of them agree with OP’s husband that she’s been living off the fat of the land. They think it’s time for her to stand on her own feet and get a job.
