My fiance and I have been together for almost twelve years. We have a combined bank account and pretty much share everything. About a year ago he started hiding all the tips he got from work (by hiding I mean physically hiding it so neither of us would spend it). He went from having a couple hundred dollars hidden away to several thousand dollars, which I just found out. For the past year he's been spending our combined money from our bank to buy side projects, such as cars, which he puts money into and then sells for profit. One of the cars was a car we got from his aunt, who no longer needed it. The plan was to sell it and use the money to buy our children some things they need. I've been waiting for months now for him to finish fixing the car so we could do this. Tonight I asked him about it and he confessed he 'sold' it a few months back. But, here is the thing: He 'sold' it to a guy who is very shady. This guy is always borrowing money from people, us included, and never paying it back! We were going to sell the car for $3,500 but apparently he made a deal with this guy and dropped it to $2,500. Not only that, the guy has only paid $500 so far, but he's been driving it around for months, and I had no idea. So not only will we never get this money now, because the guy is known for using people, but the $500 he did get, he hid with the rest of 'his' money. (He is trying to save up to dump money into a muscle car that we cannot even afford to have).
I am angry that he lied. Angry that he's selfish enough to keep the money for himself. Angry that the plans we had for that money will have to wait, again. Angry that once again this guy is taking advantage of us. And his excuse for lying to me? "I knew you would freak out. Have fun freaking out!"
Do I have a right to be this upset?
