A woman on Reddit says that she’s tired of her boyfriend’s partying ways and is charging him $50 every time he comes home past 4 a.m.
On Sunday, an unidentified woman created a Reddit post stating that she’s been with her boyfriend for two years. The first half of their relationship, she had a drinking problem and would stay out late past 3 a.m. and she would “irresponsibly allow [her] phone to die.”
“He told me it was unacceptable,” the woman, whose Reddit name is “alwaysonthedamnphone,” wrote in the post. “Eventually, it seemed like such a big deal to my boyfriend that I just sucked it up, stopped staying out late, and stopped drinking.”
But now that she’s gotten sober, she claims that her partner recently found a new set of drinking buddies and frequently stays out past 3 a.m.
“I thought I should just calmly explain to him why I disagree with his actions. But, after almost a year, he still does it,” she said. “So, tonight when he left at midnight, I made a proposition. If either one us aren’t home 4am, we have to give the other $50 and no one can be angry.”
But now she’s asking fellow Reddit members for advice on whether or not fining her boyfriend for his partying ways will save his relationship. The answers were mixed.
But a majority of the users agreed that the relationship is over.
