This pregnant woman learned that her husband, who only works part-time, purchased a PlayStation with one of the checks her parents gave them for expenses related to the baby. Perhaps he thought that money applied to him since he was acting like an infant himself!
This thread was posted to Reddit’s r/AmITheA**hole subreddit by u/The_Mechanic23, who explained that her parents have always felt that her husband married her for money. There are so many instances in which parents who suspect that kind of thing are just being classist, so it’s not surprising to us that the Redditor would reject their suspicions. However, now that we know some more facts, it’s kind of hard to refute her parents’ claim.
Firstly, the reason why he’s not working full-time is to allegedly build a baby room. This better be a big baby room! The reality is, if anything, the person not carrying the child should be working more during this stage, not less. Next, the Redditor’s parents gifted them $500 and $1,000 checks for the baby. By the time the original poster learned her husband spent all of the $500 one on video games, she ripped up the $1,000 check right in front of him so he wouldn’t be able to use that money on more video game technology, which he confessed was his plan.
If this couple can’t trust each other with finances and expenses, this relationship sounds doomed. Imagine what that dynamic will look like when a kid is in the picture. YIKES!
