A woman has revealed how she was offered a bribe to leave her partner of five years - by his own parents

The unnamed woman revealed all in a post on Reddit, describing how her fiancé's parents came to her and offered her a lot of money on the condition that she break off things with their son.

And it seems the woman had no problem accepting the cash and getting the hell out of there - but she had pretty good reason to do so.

She begins by explaining that she met her partner in college and they dated for several years before he popped the question.

The woman knew his wealthy mum and dad didn't think she was good enough for their son, but she says it never bothered her as she "loved him and thought [they] could get through this".

However after they got engaged, she began to notice that he was changing, and becoming increasingly like his parents.

She said: "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. 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."

The woman decided then to start distancing herself emotionally from her partner and was getting ready to leave him.

So when his mother called and offered her $10,000 to break up with her son, she knew it was too perfect of an opportunity to pass up.

"We made an agreement to never tell my ex or anyone else about our 'exchange'. And so that night I went home, packed my bag and broke up with him," she continued.


"I moved out that next week and haven't seen him since. He's called me multiple times but I've ignored him. Mutual friends say he's a wreck and that he 'still loves me'. His parents contacted me once since then thanking me and wishing me luck in life.

"I was planning on breaking up with him anyway, that was never going to change. The money though, did help. Was I wrong to take it? His family mistreated me so at the time I just saw it as a way of repaying me for that."

People who read the post were quick to tell her she did the right thing.

If you want to break up with someone why wait until you’re offered money? She sounds horrible and so do his parents.

This is as bad as the whole cheap engagement ring story.

Plus why go shout you’re a bitch on social media? Are you expecting sympathy and/or congratulations for “being clever”? scratch

She was probably thinking about it, anyway. The inducement just pushed her over the edge.

Yeah, exactly what I thought. Not that I’d ever consider doing what she did, but if I did, I’d certainly not shout about it proudly.

Yes she probably was considering it but why take money? It’s just unseemly.

Sounds like something I would do if they'd pissed me off enough, to be fair.

Cool

She probably considers it to be "just compensation" for their treatment of her over the years...

At $20/hr,  that's only 500 hours wages;  at $5/hr it would be 2,000 hours  --  how many years did she have to tolerate their attitude.. Maybe she should have hung around a few more weeks, and seen if dear ol' mum doubled her offer ?

She’s just plain old tacky.
