Prepare to be amazed as a person shares their heartfelt story of why they had to end their relationship. This guy ended a long term relationship with his partner because she was becoming too expensive to be with after he paid for her holidays, children and expensive lifestyle without getting anything in return!
A Financial Burden
The man confesses that he earns a good income well above average, allowing him to live comfortably.
His partner has two children from a previous relationship with deadbeat parents who never contributed financially.
Six Years of Financial Support for Kids That Aren’t His!
Since meeting his partner six years ago, he’s been helping her financially.
Initially, it was manageable, but over time it became overwhelming.
Struggle with the Eldest Step Child
The man’s partner has an older child, who is now 19 and unemployed.
Despite numerous discussions about the importance of finding a job, the child has shown no interest.
This caused resentment and strained the relationship.
Careless Spending From an Ungrateful Partner
Meanwhile, his partner has frequently taken expensive trips to visit family abroad. She’s essentially broke because money runs through her hands like water.
The man claims that he never paid for her trips, but questioned the purpose of her extravagant spending and constant need to impress others.
Taking on a Shocking Amount of Responsibility
The man felt the weight of financial responsibility on their shoulders.
He was solely responsible for groceries, outings, holidays, school expenses for the younger child, and clothing.
And his partner has rarely made any contributions except for cooking meals.
Unappreciated and Not Even Getting a Coffee
Despite their love for each other, he’s realised that the relationship was becoming unsustainable and unhealthy.
He feels unappreciated because he rarely receives gifts or even a free cup of coffee or meal.
Realising that his partner’s situation as a single mother of two was becoming too much to handle, the man made the difficult decision to end the relationship.
Despite their deep affection, he knew it was necessary for his own well-being.
While any reason for a breakup is valid, he’s recognised that the financial strain and lack of balance in the relationship had reached a breaking point.
It Wasn’t a Good Relationship for Him
Now, he has turned to Reddit for answers on whether he made the right decision, and it’s fair to say they didn’t hold back!
One user claimed that this was no relationship, arguing that, “You were her caretaker, not her partner. A good relationship involves both people giving to each other, and working together to make things better for both.”
Another argued that the man clearly wasn’t fully aware of what he was getting into, “You knew you were getting into a relationship with a single mother of two. You didn’t know you were signing up to financially support 2 adults and a child, as well as yourself.”
He Was Named After a God
Recently, a Reddit user shared a story where he legally changed his name, and as a result, his father threatened him. Here’s the full story. His Father Gave Him a Name That Resulted in Him Being Bullied, He Legally Changed It, and Now His Father Is Demanding He Change It Back
