So to keep a long story short, I just say it as it is:
My fiancé wanted me to finance him a motorbike, I said “no”!
Which caused a huge argument. One didn’t talk to the other for some hours.
My reason for not wanting to do that was/is quite easy:
I didn’t want us to drown in debt! I still have a big chunk of my credit card to pay back, future husband has to pay things back and I thought we have other priorities anyway like
getting married, having children, moving house, maybe even buying a house once our financial situation has gotten better.
Future husband of course said, I wouldn’t trust him, said at least he knows where he stands with me… well to put it this way:
He acted like a little child who received the answer “no”. He said, if it was the other way around, he wouldn’t have hesitated. The thing is, I wouldn’t even think to put him in such a situation unless he/we would financially well off. Yes, he would be able to pay the monthly rates, but what if something happens, like him getting injured again, things that would prevent him paying? I can’t pay for him even if I wanted to.
To the guys who might read this:
Why is a motorbike so much more important than the things I thought we both wanted??? I thought children and marriage followed by moving house (I still hate it here) was what was important! A motorbike is not a necessity! Like my citizenship which I want so bad. I know I can’t afford it right now (fees are £1400,- +/-) so I have to wait. Easy, right?!
However, eventually I did try to get a loan from my bank. Not because I wanted to, but because I felt pressured to do so. But with my meager wage and that huge credit card bill, of course I was rejected and to be honest, I am glad. I already have tears in my eyes, every time I see my account anyway…
Well guess I can write off the the future plans we had and just keep living trying to make it from one day to the next…
Until next the time
