A woman doesn’t want her boyfriend’s name included on the deed for her new home.
She explained the situation on Reddit “Am I the A ******?” (IATA) â. The Reddit poster earns a lot more than her boyfriend. When they decided to look for a house together, she decided to pay the entire down payment and most of the related bills and expenses. She felt it made sense that she was the only one on the act, but he disagreed.
âMy boyfriend and I have been together for about four years,â she wrote. âWe started living together two years ago in an apartment and it was great! I recently found a new job and am making about $ 80,000 a year and wanted to move out of our apartment and move into a house. My boyfriend, on the other hand, doesn’t have a great work ethic and has worked about eight different jobs in the four years we’ve been together, all of which are paid minimum wage. I talked about buying a house and he was totally ok with that, so we started looking for a house.
âI have enough savings for a down payment and to cover all the closing costs, but my boyfriend has no savings and lives paycheck to paycheque. We are currently sharing our rent 50/50 and he pays his bills (car payment, insurance etc.) I totally agree that I take more expenses since I earn more than him and he doesn’t never complained.
But when she told the boyfriend about her terms of buying the house, he got angry.
“We have finally found our dream house and we will be signing the papers in a few weeks,” she explained. âI mentioned to her that I wish I was the only name on the house since we are buying it with my savings and we are not married and are not planning to get married anytime soon. He’s mad at me now because it’s supposed to be “our home”.
“I told him it was OUR house, but legally it will be just mine because I don’t want to put $ 400,000 on the line. He said if it was just my house, he said. shouldn’t have to pay to live there. I disagree it would be like paying rent somewhere else and when / if we get married we will change the deal. He hasn’t spoken to me for three days now and I really don’t think I’m wrong here.
Reddit users thought the boyfriend was being ridiculous.
âHonestly, the fact that he’s been giving you silent treatment for days on end is a huge red flag and is really inappropriate for an adult relationship,â one user wrote.
âDon’t let him intimidate you. It’s your money, âsomeone added.
âThis man is a garbage can. If it wasn’t for you, where would it be? another commented.
