A woman had been in a relationship with her fiancé for almost six years. They were due to get married in the summer of 2019, but in January of that year, her fiancé abruptly ended the relationship, blaming her for it and saying some cruel and vicious things. She was later told by his friends that he had cheated on her, which was another blow.
The Financial Dispute
When they broke up, the woman insisted that her fiancé return the deposit she had paid in full and pay back her dad for the non-refundable part of the wedding deposit too. The total was around £2k, and they agreed to £200 per month from around April that year.
The Woman’s Good Fortune
That September, the woman’s luck changed. The owners of her company had decided to sell, and despite her being a PA, they cut her in along with the high-level management. She left with low seven figures.
She Kept Her Secrets
She only shared the specifics with her parents, and even her ex-fiancé wasn’t aware of the exact figure. She bought a very nice central mews house in a really nice part of the city, decorated it, and took herself on a few holidays.
She Got Her Job Back
Her boss later rehired her on a part-time basis for his new venture, and between that and the interest off the remaining capital, she lived very comfortably.
The New Year’s Eve Party
The issue came at NYE. There was supposed to be a party at their friend’s house, but last minute they required a venue change, and the woman agreed to host it instead. She wasn’t going to exclude anyone, so she made it clear that her ex-fiancé and his new girlfriend could come.
So Many Questions
When he arrived, her ex-fiancé started asking her questions about when she bought her house and what work she did to it, etc. She was honest about the timeline, but she admits that she did make it seem like it required some modifications/repairs, which it didn’t.
The Financial Dispute Resurfaces
A few days later, her ex-fiancé messaged her, thanking her for including him and his girlfriend. They had a little back and forth, and then he sent a message saying that he was surprised that she insisted he repay her for the wedding debt in full. He said that had he known of her financial circumstances, he would have probably stopped paying.
Does He Have The Money?
He also reminded her that he wasn’t in a great financial place at that time. The woman left him on read for a while and then replied with a cold retort, stating that the terms were agreed upon long before her circumstances changed. She also reminded him that half of that debt was, in fact, the deposit for the flat that he continued to live in. She made it clear that this was the last time they would discuss the matter.
The Woman’s Dilemma
The woman began to wonder if she was in the wrong for insisting on her ex-fiancé repaying the debt in full. She asked if she was wrong in this situation. She also mentioned that the debt had already been cleared some time ago, and her ex-fiancé wasn’t threatening to stop paying now, but he was simply saying that had he known at the time, he would have stopped.
Most of the comments on the woman’s post were in her favor. People pointed out that the terms were agreed upon before her financial circumstances changed, and her ex-fiancé had an obligation to pay the debt. They also noted that the woman’s ex-fiancé was probably jealous of her new financial situation and that his message was a way of expressing his envy. Some people also suggested that the woman should cut ties with her ex-fiancé and stop inviting him to events. In the end, the woman felt vindicated and grateful for the support she received from strangers on the internet.
The Internet Responses
One commenter wrote, “I’ll be completely honest, under certain circumstances I’d say it’s not worth fighting over if you’re financially comfortable and the other person is not. For example, if you were a successful lawyer married to a student and your engagement fell apart because you both wanted different things? Yeah, let it go.”
Another person said, “a debt is a debt, no justification for forgiving it. Would your ex have paid you more if you were in dire financial straits?”
