After a large sum of money came in from student loans, this family has had an opportunity to reach financial stability. The only problem is, her husband is spending it all on himself! Now, she’s doing the unthinkable and hiding the money from her husband in order to prioritise the kids.
Cutting Ties With Her Husband
A wife bravely took matters into her own hands to secure her financial independence from her husband’s careless spending spree.
A Huge Opportunity
Sarah’s husband, John, recently received a significant sum from their student loan relief which could pave the way to a more stable future.
A Careless Spending Spree?
“He’s bought a new playstation and 10+ games… clothes, car accessories, the list could go on,” Sarah admits in a tearful confession.
The Kids Are Her Priority
While Sarah is more focused on her kids’ well-being, John seems to be making ridiculous purchases that only fit his wants.
A Shopping Spree With a Twist
While Sarah admits to spending around $1000 of the money, her priority is ensuring her children are well-prepared for school.
A Mother’s Heartwarming Admission
“School’s starting soon so I got them everything they needed, and I bought a double stroller to walk our 4-year-old and 3-month-old to take the older 2 to school.”
Taking Matters Into Her Own Hands
Sarah decided to take cash and hide it from her husband, “I started taking cash and hiding it from him. I never spend on myself, and when I do it’s for the house.”
Turning to Reddit for Answers
Now, Sarah has turned to Reddit for advice, “Am I wrong for taking and hiding money from him? If he spent 40 on a few games, I would take 40 and hide it.”
Her Financial Secret
John remains unaware, “He thinks we only have 120 left out of the check. I’ve stashed close to 300.”
Reddit Users Have Their Say
Some users argue that she’s doing what’s best for her family, “Sounds like you need to continue to stash money!”
A Drastic Idea?
Other users argue something more serious could be on the cards if he doesn’t shape up, “You’ve got four kids and he’s blowing money like a teenager? You need to save up money to leave him.”
