A fed-up woman sparked outrage on Reddit when she refused to pay for her boyfriend’s parents to go on vacation with them. Based on the full story that follows, it’s a wonder he didn’t try to bring his ex-wife!
He Brings the Kids
OP has been with her boyfriend for 4 years.
He has 2 kids with his ex-wife, but OP doesn’t have kids and doesn’t want any.
He Has the Money
OP and her boyfriend make okay money, but they’re not rolling in cash.
The boyfriend is the primary breadwinner, bringing home about 65% of their income.
He Wants Her to Pay
But even though he makes more money, OP’s boyfriend insists that they split all the household bills 50/50.
She Pays for His Kids
And the boyfriend’s kids stay with them a lot, which means OP ends up paying for a lot of their food and other expenses, too.
He Owes Her a Ton
To make matters worse, OP usually pays for more than half the bills.
Her boyfriend continues to shortchange her, to the tune of several thousand dollars over the last few years.
She Let Him Slide…Mostly
OP has never called out her boyfriend about him not paying his share, but she did ask why she should pay half of everything in the first place.
He Wanted to Be Near His Ex
OP’s boyfriend said he was trying to save money to buy a house near his ex. He claimed he wanted to be closer to his kids.
She Was Hurt
OP had a hard time arguing with that sentiment, even though it hurt her feelings.
He Wanted a Weekend Getaway
Recently, OP’s boyfriend asked her if she wanted to go on a weekend trip with him.
OP was down with it, and they planned to split the bill.
His Folks Were Lucky
Later on the night they made their travel plans, OP’s boyfriend went to visit his parents.
Both of them had recently battled cancer but were on the mend.
He Wanted Them to Go
During the visit, the boyfriend texted OP and asked if it was okay if he invited his family along for the trip.
He offered to pay their portion of the bill.
She Was Happy to Have Them
Since OP doesn’t have much family of her own, she was fine having her boyfriend’s folks tag along.
They Were All His
As it turned out, there were 7 people total who went to the lodge that weekend.
Six of them were members of OP’s boyfriend’s family.
She Had Fun
Still, OP didn’t mind the crowd and was glad to get away.
Money Troubles Awaited
But a few days later, the full bill for the trip came in, and OP and her boyfriend sat down to settle up.
That’s when the trouble really started.
He Cut Her a Break
OP’s boyfriend said that he was willing to pay 60% of the bill, which left the other 40% for OP to pay.
She Made a Counteroffer
That was a shock to OP since everyone but her was part of her boyfriend’s family.
She told him she would only pay a bit more than her share, or 15%.
She’s Had Enough
Now, the couple are arguing about the money, and OP’s boyfriend says she’s being selfish. But she’s tired of him taking advantage of her.
Redditors overwhelmingly support OP’s decision to not pay for her boyfriend’s family’s travel expenses. Many of them advise her to run for the hills, saying that her boyfriend is only with her for her money.
Some wonder if OP’s boyfriend is still attached to his ex-wife and that’s the real reason he wants to move closer to her.
