A woman has asked if she was in the wrong for getting annoyed at her husband for choosing to pay for a new car for his friend rather than helping her pay for IVF treatment. Here’s what she had to say.
Her husband has a friend
The woman’s husband, who is 36 years old, has a 33-year-old friend who he’s known since high school. They’re very close, “inseparable,” in fact, and they spend a lot of time together.
They have struggled
The woman and her husband have struggled with fertility problems for several years. Recently, they started looking into IVF as a means to have “at least one child together.”
She saved some money
Of the two, it was the woman who saved for “the majority of treatment,” as she was in a position to do that, while her husband put between $2,000 and $3,000 toward it.
Their first effort failed
When they first tried IVF to have a child, the woman and her husband were forced to cope with the “huge disappointment and heartbreak” when those efforts did not lead to a pregnancy.
She paid for the next one
On their latest attempt at IVF conception, the woman paid for the costs in their entirety, using some of the money from her father’s inheritance, while her husband “did not pay a cent” for it.
The woman discovered something
Recently, the woman discovered that her husband had taken $7,000 of the $11,000 that they had in order to lend it to his friend so that he could “buy a decent car.” This “completely and utterly shocked” the woman, as her husband told her that his friend would have done the same for him.
She was furious
The woman was “beyond livid” with her husband, asking if he thought it was okay, which is something that he believed. She demanded that his friend return the money, threatening police involvement if he decided not to. When her husband discovered this, he was angry.
“I told him that I’d saved up and used my inheritance for this while he contributed nothing, even though we’re in this together,” she said. “He ‘corrected’ me, saying that I’m the one with the problem, and he thought that it was only fair that I ‘make up’ for it by paying for the IVF treatment.”
Was she right?
Her husband’s comment hurt so bad that she could not argue with him anymore. He went to stay with his friend while “constantly shaming” her for her behavior.
The internet responded
One person noted, “That was money you saved and inherited. That means you’re the one paying for it, and he did steal from you.”
Another commenter said, “This man has no respect for you. How could he say something so hurtful to the person he’s supposed to love?”
