Well this story sounds like the woman is just all about the money, but unfortunately this story isn’t that simple. The woman that took the money anonymously told her story to Reddit. The couple actually met in college and dated for two years before her boyfriend proposed to her. Now this woman was Cuban, and the man was from a traditional Asian family. The parents were never really accepting of her, and they almost treated her as “sub-human”. This never bothered her and it also didn’t seem to bother HIM. She was in love before he proposed but apparently everything changed when they got engaged.
She described it all in her post saying, “He became extremely controlling. He wanted to know where I was almost every moment of the day, at one point he even said after we are married he wants to schedule out my day so he knows where I am at all times.” It got way worse. She stated, “Along with this, I found out he is an alcoholic who can become very belligerent when drunk. These red flags were enough for me and I’ve been thinking of stepping back for a while now. The real tipping point was when he told me that he feels like he has to ‘settle’ for me and that he can do better.”
So at this point she was already ready to leave him when she got a call from his mother offering her $10,000 to leave him. They also agreed that this contact was to never be mentioned to him. So what did she do? She took the money and left! She considered it payment for his parents always treating her like crap.
To this day he still calls her all the time and his friends say that he is a complete wreck and misses her. She ignores those calls.
Would you have done the same?
