Relationships are all about the give and take, but some people really do take the piss. According to one particularly furious woman, her fiancé recently decided to blow the majority of the couple's honeymoon fund... on a gaming PC.
According to this unbelievable post on the R/relationship_advice subbreddit (thanks, Kotaku), this poor woman's husband-to-be spaffed away all $8,000 (£6,350) on a new PC to play video games on. As you can imagine, she was less than thrilled with this unexpected investment, and isn't quite sure what she's supposed to do now.
"Last month, my fiancé's best friend bought a new gaming pc," ThrowRA-rowaway wrote. "My fiancé wanted to buy one, so he asked me, but I denied it because we both already had laptops. I told him that he can play games in the laptop that he already has. He repeatedly kept asking me if he could buy a pc and I finally agreed to it (now I regret it so badly)."
After about a week, it seems that PC finally showed up... along with a brand new table and gaming chair. When she called him out on the pricey order, he admitted that it had set them back their entire honeymoon fund. This, unsurprisingly, led to an argument during which he was very rightly bollocked for being an arse for spending money that wasn't entirely his to spend.
Incredibly, her fiancé promised that he would "earn it all back," but it's not entirely clear what that means. Maybe he thinks now that he has the gear, he can start a successful career as a YouTuber or Twitch streamer? I just don't know. What seems clear is that he has no intention of earning the money back. Or doing anything at all besides playing video games.
"It's been about 2 weeks since he got the PC and since then, my finacé hasn't gotten up from his new chair," she continued. "Ever since he got the PC, he hasn't even seen my face. From the past 2 weeks I've been so lonely that it feels like I'm alone at home and nobody to even talk to.
"He is ignoring me so much that I think he has absolutely forgotten that I even exist in his life. I honestly feel like his waitress now a days because from the past 2 weeks, the only interaction we both have is him asking for food and water and me giving it to him.
"Everything that is happening right now is so bad, I called my parents and told them about it last night and they almost had nothing to say. I'm thinking of calling his parents tonight and telling it to them, and maybe they can knock some sense into him. I honestly don't know what else to do now. I want to burn that PC. It would be very nice if someone suggested me something about this."
If your jaw is currently somewhere on the floor right now, you're not alone. My first instinct would be to dump his arse hard and then maybe make him eat his PC, but love can be weird and people are unable to see obvious flaws/glaring red flags in their partners. Many Reddit users advised her to stop catering to his every need and make him prepare his own food and drink as a place to start, which... yeah? It's a low bar, but I guess you need to start somewhere.
Others gently suggested that she talk to her fiancé openly about the situation, but it seems to me that she tried that? Some seemed more interested in what parts, specifically, he ordered for the PC, but who the hell cares about that? The bottom line is that the guy sounds like an absolute D-bag, and I sincerely hope the OP manages to either find a way to communicate with him, or leave him for someone - anyone - else.
