studbaker99 Posted March 9, 2007 Share Posted March 9, 2007 My ex, with whom I'm great friends with, owes me like $10k. This was because for a time she didn't have a job, and needed help with paying cell phone bills, insurance, etc, etc. Another time once she graduated from college I lent (and was very explicit about this) $1000 bucks for her to go to London for a week so she could discover herself. Most of those $10k had been "loans". Then we broke up. She's paying it back in $100 installments a month. It'll be 10 years before she pays it off at that rate. It's not like she can't pay it up faster. She just recently bought her bf a $500 gift and I really don't mind nor do I need the money. However, she doesn't agree that she should have to pay it back, under the premise that 'any money lent while in a relationship is considered more like a gift'. I say otherwise, especially since at the time I lent her the money I knew that we weren't meant to be together. Again ,we're still best friends, and out of that new relationship between us, she's complying with paying, but her moral beliefs say she doesn't have to. Just looking for some perspectives.
