c h a n i e Posted August 22, 2008 Share Posted August 22, 2008 My boyfriend and I are in a fairly serious relationship, even though we haven't even been together for a year. We both want the same things, the house, the children etc. And generally get along pretty well. He says he wants to marry me one day and calls me 'wifey' (so sweet!) When we started dating he smoked, would go drinking and clubbing alot, played the pokies or 'slots' a fair bit and would generally waste all his money. We decided to stop clubbing and drinking (both our decisions) which also stopped alot of arguments. I wanted to quit smoking, so he tried, but used to cheat and smoke and lie about it all, which we fought about alot and I would try to get him to buy patches. He didn't have any insurance on his car and I nagged him for about 4 months to get it. He finally did. I just didn't want him to be driving a car that he is in so much debt for around without it. Especially when they are a target for theft and vandalism etc. He is in about 25k debt and I have been trying to help him do up budgets and things so he can pay the loan off earlier. He wants to get a house with me next year, but I don't want to struggle financially and if he doesn't pull his socks up he wont have any money saved for a deposit, or may even still be in debt. I tried to get him to pay extra off of his loan, but he wouldn't, he has started another account that he deposits money in, but that was even a hastle to get him to do. Last financial year he earnt around he 90k and has NOTHING to show for it. I told my friend all of this and she said it sounds like i'm a nagger... I'm only looking out for his best interest and our future's best interest. I don't want to have to pay a house loan off by myself. What do you think? Link to comment
