Woman hides her $25k debt from her husband until after they're married. New hubby pays it all off and even adds her to his bank account.

September 17, 2016


I am having a hard time mentally moving past the fact that it took me so long to save that $17K... I love and trust my wife, and I am committed to her. I know that paying off the debts was the best decision, but I can't help but dwell on the fact that I feel like I made it too easy and non-consequential for her. This feels like an unhealthy mindset. Any guidance for me?

That's right, a very unhealthy mindset indeed. Stop money-shaming her, shitlord. Keep your head down and keep earning money to pay off all the new debt she'll inevitably accrue in the future as well. You exist entirely to please and pay for your wife now - welcome to your new life. Consider the $17k a payment for her accepting your lowly, pathetic, male hand in marriage. She's doing you a favor!


2) We will go have her added to my current checking account as a joint tenant and have the account become OUR account.

Ah yes, very good idea indeed. Her financial history is clearly very solid, so giving her unmitigated access to your bank account seems like a good idea. Now that you've cleaned up her messes and given her a clean slate I'm certain she will turn her life around and put a complete stop to her irresponsible spending habits.

tl;dr don't fucking get married and if you do don't be this fucking guy, good god.

This is how you enforce irresponsible financial behavior.
The fact that she did hide her debt alone would be reason enough for me to break up.
If someone can't be honest about something that important if he/she will get married, that is a classic disqualification example in my book.
Giving her access to the bank account is the cherry on this shitcake. He will regret that very soon.

The fact she was able to hide that much credit card debt shows how fucking dumb this guy is anyways. He deserves to be cucked. That's the purpose these chumps served in the old days. To raise Chad's kids so he didn't have to and so society didn't need prison. Just look at Joseph in the Bible. God, the archetype of the ideal man cucks his "virgin" wife and Joseph raises it as if it was his own. Jesus turns out okay and does some good for the world. But he was raised by a cuck so naturally Islam starts beating his followers' asses.

[–]PantsuElite4 points5 points  (7 children) | Copy

Come on, this is not a good analogy.

Joseph has seen angels come to him from heaven to tell of the Prophecy to come true and that his family was chosen to fulfill the prophesy, the biggest one in the Jewish creed.

He was a deeply religious man. And he was reassured Mary was a virgin, etc.

[–]darkrood1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

It would be hilarious if the whole thing was just chad's bouncing not Mary

[–]Mckallidon1 point2 points  (5 children) | Copy

That sounds like a blue pill rationalization if I ever heard one. I got cucked but it was for a good cause. It was for Chad Thindercock. Angels told me it was okay. If you pick through the bible obviously adultery is bad, unless it's with Chad.

[–]Ultimate_Failure2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Dude your analogy was hilarious. It had a kernel of truth, or it wouldn't be funny.

[–]PantsuElite0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy

You are ridiculing yourself by choosing to argue further. Alright.

Joseph was about to divorce Mary because of her pregnancy. He was not a BB as you think he was:

And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man and not wanting to disgrace her, planned to send her away secretly. - Matthew 1:19

He basically had 2 options here:

  • To divorce her openly with public testimony which would clear him of any responsibility but would publically disgrace Mary.

  • To pursue a quiet bill of divorcement without a public trial.

So your analogy is shit. Pick a better one, as I've said.

[–]Mckallidon0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

You pick a better one. You sound like a woman. Nothing is good enough but you offer nothing. Have a sense of humor. Sorry TRP is your only friend.

[–][deleted] 53 points54 points  (7 children) | Copy

The whole thread is people criticizing the OP, not for paying her debts, but for maybe making her feel like a child (because she acted like one) and telling him that when you're married it's not your debt or her debt, it's a shared debt as is the money. Even though she kept it hidden until they were already fucking married.

Paying her debts wasn't enough, they're telling him that he should comfort her and help her "heal" after this because she must have been so scared and frightened and embarrassed. These people believe that women are so weak that men need to pay their debts and then COMFORT them afterward, as if she did him a favor allowing him to take on a shitload of debt (given their income). And then in the same breath they say we should treat women the same as men.

[–]Zerwas22 points23 points  (0 children) | Copy

The latter part is simply astounding and ridiculous. This kind of thinking has no foundation in reality.
Just imagine if the gender roles were reversed...people would be all over the mans ass daring to inflict such a situation on his future partner.

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (0 children) | Copy

Exactly and they call us here at TRP the misogynysts They are the ones who think women are so weak that they can't do things on their own. It's the opposite. We know what women are capable of and that's why we know marriage is a bad deal.

OP's wife knew exactly what she was doing, by hiding the debt, UNTIL were married. She basically trapped the sucker, yet nobody on the thread acknowledged the fact that she deceived him. Nope, it was all "poor little snowflake", now it's your debt too.

It's not a joke. I think there was even parts saying to set aside some money "for fun." It was so hard to read.

To be exact, her debts is shared debt, but your debt stays yours.

The double standards at play, just from one of top posts today:


since we’re together, it’s our money and that I was wasting it.

Oh no. That money is yours. Put him in his place. If he wants more money he can earn it, not use yours.

Most states it won't matter if her name is on the account or not in a divorce, unless there are clear premarital funds or a prenup they split it up.

Haha what a chump.

"I am now kind of giving her a crash course in credit cards, etc"

He doesn't even realise how much he has taught her already.

He thinks he is going to be giving her lessons in responsible financial management. What he has actually just done is teach her that her pussy can get a nice guy to clear all her debts anyway so #yolo.

[–][deleted] 166 points167 points  (41 children) | Copy

The credit card debt is what really sticks out here. Student loan debt is one thing and not only difficult to avoid, but encouraged.

However, pretty much everyone tells you to avoid credit card debt at all costs. Racking up $17k in credit card debt is outstandingly bad decision making.

[–]Sementeries57 points58 points  (34 children) | Copy

First off, how long you gonna know a bitch and not know how much debt she has? There's many telltale signs a bitch has financial issues.

This dude deserves the dumbass of the year award.

[–]Mckallidon11 points12 points  (33 children) | Copy

He could have just checked her FICO. 17k in debt will stick right out. Any man with some money and assets should never marry a woman with less than an 825 credit score.

[–]blueiron040 points41 points  (8 children) | Copy

825 is a pretty high standard to meet. I'm all for setting the bar high, and I think you have every right to set your own standards. However, telling people "don't marry anyone with less than an 825" is both arbitrary and unrealistic. A lot of people turn to this sub for solid advice.

[–]Planner_Hammish4 points5 points  (1 child) | Copy

I'm not sure the nuance in going from 800 to 825, but I've a score (last time I checked) of 799, and I have never missed a payment or defaulted or anything. I've paid off student loans, and have a mortgage and new car. So yeah, with 825, I'd say you give or take a bit of leeway.

[–]blueiron00 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

less than 1 out of every 5 people have an 800 credit score. once you go up to 825 it gets even more scarce. The benefits from anything over 750 to 825 are incredibly negligible too. There's almost no difference. Here is a great article: https://www.mainstreet.com/article/what-does-a-truly-excellent-score-actually-get-you-not-much-it-turns-out

My main point, though, was that this magic 825 is just incredibly arbitrary. Why 825? so an 824 automatically rules someone out of LTR material? Just a strange piece of advice to me.

[–]Kingspot-2 points-1 points  (0 children) | Copy

bro shes gotta be a HB8 virgin with an 825 credit score and a college degree who is completely submissive to all my sexual requests.

accept anything less and you are a beta cuck.

[–]1NPIF41 points42 points  (13 children) | Copy

I have money and assets and I don't even have an 825 credit score. It's good advice to make sure your woman has some money management knowledge but let's be realistic!

[–]Mckallidon2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

I don't understand. I've never financed a car and I have an 800+ FICO with student loans still. But I've also paid everything since I was 18 and have had multiple credit cards that I always paid off early for ten years. Idk. Seemed easy to me. Time is the biggest factor in the calculation. Over ten years of paying a lot of shit off on time is probably what did it for me.

[–]limpingrobot 8 points8 points [recovered] | Copy

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (6 children) | Copy

I handle my finances really good. Have little credit debt paid off monthly, so no paying interest and my credit score is a 765. Over 800 you get from having credit cards open for more than like 7 years. My oldest credit card is 5 years old.

[–]aazav1 point2 points  (4 children) | Copy

I have no idea what my FICO is. I have no credit cards. Debit all the way. When I rent a car, I put down a $5000 deposit, which I always get back. I pay what I owe. Just sold one house and having the other renovated. I work my ass off. The only debt I have is my house. That said, I'm really aware of the cost of operations of my life. If a woman wants to be part of it, she must compliment it, not be a drain on it.

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (0 children) | Copy

You should consider credit cards. They can protect you in ways that debit cards can't and some come with signup bonuses. Warranty extension, fraud protection, foreign transaction fees waived, etc.

If someone steals your credit card and spends money, it doesn't come out of bank account.

[–]illyafromuncle0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Just curious what rental car company you use, I got to the counter to rent one and they wouldn't let me use my debit, I even said "do you want a 10k deposit?..no deal.

Went to the rental place next door, they said the same thing.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I basically do this but having a single credit card (that is set up - automatically - to clear the balance from the checking account every month) has helped by take free flights every two years. After a few years they gave me a free upgrade to a World Elite level visa just based on the amount of money I keep in the bank's accounts and now I also get a huge discount on rental cars, 25% off airmile redemption, access to the airport lounge, and a concierge number that actually sets up restaurant reservations and such.

Like everything, CC companies screw the poor/dumb but provide benefits and perks for the rich/smart - luckily for them 85% of people are poor/dumb.

EDIT: before I had the World Elite card, I had the SPC (Student Price Card) Visa - with that one, I would randomly get 10-20% off at places like Pizza Hut and H&M (where I buy basic T-shirts in bulk). There are benefits to living responsibly with credit.

[–]WASPandNOTsorry0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

You think you're doing everything right but you're a fucking tool. First of all, any half decent credit card will automatically insure your rental for you. If you're putting 5 grand down instead of insurance you're a fucking moron. Read a couple of books on financial management you dolt.

[–]Mckallidon0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

That explains mine. I've been paying off multiple cards for more than seven. Plus cell phones and utilities.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

This is nonsense. Don't quantify a partner based on a credit score. I have 50k in the bank at 24 and zero debt but my credit score is a low 700 because I have never had to take out any debt, never had to finance or lease a car, or take out a loan... the only reason I have a credit score at all is because I got a credit card at 18 and use it to collect airmiles, paid off in full every month - but with that little action it will take years to have an "impressive" credit score.

[–]phx-au1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

Yeah don't rely too much on credit reporting agencies - I have two mortgages that don't come up on mine. shrugs

[–]lisecki0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Not all credit reporting agencies list/banks report mortgages...and they SHOULDN'T. Everyone pays their mortgage/rent, it's all the other debt that throws red flags.

[–]phx-au0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

It SHOULD exist on a CCR - these haven't just been for negative reports for years. How else do you expect you can 'build up' your score by being responsible?

[–]no_face5 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy

nigga, im the most responsible individual financially and i dont have 825

.... oh! you are saying you should never marry! I get it now

[–]Mckallidon0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Well almost. If she has an 825 FICO then she's probably safe. But most bitches ain't safe. And I'm white. Don't be calling me that. It's Cracka. Mista Cracka to you.

[–]WASPandNOTsorry0 points1 point  (7 children) | Copy

825? There's like 10 people in the entire country with an 800 fico score. I have assets, a booming business and never had any debt and mine is in the mid 700s.

[–]Mckallidon0 points1 point  (6 children) | Copy

That sucks. And no. Most of my friends have an 800+ credit score. I have more than ten friends. And they're not rich. Mine is above 800. I've never financed a business or a house. But I have had a lot of debt. I paid off a car in half the time. I've paid multiple (5) credit cards on time for almost ten years, every month, along with all my other bills. And I've never been late on anything. I've paid double on my student loans for years. I don't know man. That's why, you've never had any debt! I'm probably older as well. I've been paying a lot of debt for a long time. You may have a booming business but your credit isn't cash flow. It's how long you've reliably paid debts on time.

[–]WASPandNOTsorry0 points1 point  (5 children) | Copy

It's okay I don't really need it for anything. My credit score is complete inconsequential to me.

[–]Mckallidon0 points1 point  (4 children) | Copy

I didn't even track mine til last year. I only want above 850 for cheap interest in a mortgage or business loan.

[–]WASPandNOTsorry0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy

First of all, don't buy a house. It's a waste of money. It's not an investment, it's a liability. It's the most unliquid "invenstment" you could ever make. Buying a home is one of the biggest hoaxes of main stream culture. Do NOT fall into it.
Also, from one business owner to another, exhaust all other options for your business before you go to the bank.

[–]Mckallidon0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

I would only buy my first house as an income property. I'm well aware of having assets pay for your liabilities. And how stupid people are with blue pill life. Landlording doesn't exactly inspire me, but I'd rather buy income properties and rent an efficiency studio for myself to just put stacks on deck. They're not liquid, but they're usually a solid long term investment. Maybe not so much anymore but they're intrinsically valuable which is way better than stocks in terms of risk of losing your investment. Plus eventually it becomes a much more passive income than running many other businesses or working like a sucker. But I know you also have to know the market and know what the fuck is going on. I believe the best approach for wealth is a mixed bag and knowing when to hold or fold, like life in general. I would only loan money for a business if it was the only way to avoid a sudden lost opportunity or avoid some opportunity cost. For example right now I am looking to start a brewpub. I could start small and build with what I have, but I could also end up wasting a lot of money by not going with a bigger system and the right size space in the first place if I end up exploding and losing money by not meeting demand and keeping up production or having enough seating and then having to expand. It's a tough line to know what side to be on until you've really done your homework. I actually plan on finding investors before I loan money. The microbrew industry is bumping right now and it'd be doable to find people who want to buy in to a good idea. Cheers.

[–]aazav9 points10 points  (2 children) | Copy

Racking up $17k in credit card debt is outstandingly bad decision making.

It's that living beyond your means thing. It shows a massive inability to accept restrictions and reality. And with those two, you become a problem to yourself and a problem to others who fall for your shit.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy

Exactly. Even if I was worth millions of dollars and happened to be dating someone who was $17K in debt, it's still a huge red flag. Even though I would be able to pay that off like its nothing, it shows she is not able to handle her own finances and spending. That's something that leaks into other areas of your life.

[–]Planner_Hammish0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I know it's a bit different, but I have a large balance on my line of credit; the majority of that debt was a loan I took out during the panic last January and also the panic during brexit. Yes, it will take me a bit to pay off, but the $25/month I pay in interest is well worth the 20% gains I got by taking a risk.

[–]dotte112 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Even when faced with the truth of the lesson he is teaching her, poor schmucks like that will rationalize it as doing something nice for m'lady.

What they fail to realize is their kindness is actually cruelty. By enabling/teaching a woman to behave poorly and exploit men, one is simply hobbling her ability to maintain a healthy relationship ever.

All so the enabler can feel better about themselves in the short term magical fantasy land they have constructed for themselves in their head.

[–]Stythe5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

Absolutely accurate. Saving people from t consequences of their actions is not helping, it is entirely enabling. It seems like rather than trying to teach relationship advice to people they should be taught how to deal with addicts. This stuff is straight addiction. Would you pay for your wife's heroic habit? Great! So why the fuck are you paying for her to ruin her financial reputation. .....Oh right, pussy. Idiot.

Women are smart - they will find the opportune time to release all of their baggage onto you expecting you to help alleviate the load. If men stopped being such huge manginas, perhaps they'd begin to understand that no logical person would tolerate that shit.

Exactly. People on here think all women are dumb and that's not the case. I remember saying somewhere else that women are smarter and more cunning than men think they are. Yes, it's dumb to get in $17K worth of debt, but she knew she could find some dumb guy to pay it off for her and not just that, the idiot put her on his bank account.

Just because you bought her a drink or two doesn't make you a cuck. Words lose their power when they are overused. Cucks are men who get sexual gratification from watching their wives fuck bulls.

Sexual gratification isnt a necessary component. It's any man with an adulterous wife/girlfriend. Colloquially it seems to refer to men who are in this position because of their weakness and inability to stand up to their girlfriend.

That's really the problem inherent to all the arguments being made. The advice is truly sound if you assume the marriage will last a long time whilst being a pleasant affair, but the odds are NOT in your favor. It honestly blows my mind that otherwise logical people cannot make a basic risk assessment when it comes to marriage. If 3/4 marriages were happy and lasted for 30 plus years or longer, it'd maybe be an argument. Maybe.

Should I go ahead and just pay off the student loan as well?

If you can, yes.

Should we just cancel the remaining credit card, or should I leave it open and just not use it ever again for the sake of her credit health? (If this even makes sense.)

As a woman, this horrifies me. Essentially, you would remove the possibility of building a solid credit history for her and if anything were to happen to you or your marriage, she could be left in an unintended financial bind without a solid credit history. Keep the credit card and order a replacement for the one you shredded. Use this credit card to help build a solid credit history and have her add you as an authorized user to track spending as you guide her in responsibly using credit. If your wife does not learn how to use the card responsibly you may end up in a similar situation again. If you do not repair her credit, then you will also run into issues when you purchase a house together.

How you poor schmuck dare considering not to pay the entirety of your wife's hidden credit loan ? That thought horrifies me. If my husband did that to me the twice a month starfish sex would transform into none and divorce would be on the table until he comes back to reason.

I am having a hard time mentally moving past the fact that it took me so long to save that $17K... I love and trust my wife, and I am committed to her. I know that paying off the debts was the best decision, but I can't help but dwell on the fact that I feel like I made it too easy and non-consequential for her. This feels like an unhealthy mindset. Any guidance for me?

I've only been married for six years, but here's what I have to say and it's something I've said on here before...that 17K should be viewed as a gift even if you have plans to be "paid back." This will avoid resentment and nothing kills a marriage like resentment. You need to figure out a way of letting it go. The 17K should never be brought up in arguments or as something you hold over her. Generally, I recommend making this experience an opportunity to really define the financial goals of your marriage. What things are important to each of you financially? How do you want to handle finances in the future? Involve your spouse in these decisions. It will give her skin in the game, so to speak.

Don't use the fact that you gifted her your hard saved 17K as a leverage to demand anything of her in your relationship. She did nothing wrong, what you did was exactly what was expected of you, she owes you nothing for that and if you dare reminding her that event she will resent you and this will only accelerate the cucking and the divorce.

[–][deleted] 28 points29 points  (10 children) | Copy

Holy fucking shit. I read that and how she rationalizes the paying off $17K as some gift is just mind blowing. Yep, OP should just be a good little slave and still allow his wife to be involved in financial decisions, even though she previously racked up $17 THOUSAND IN CREDIT CARD DEBT.

[–]Swelfie18 points19 points  (8 children) | Copy

And closing the wife's credit card so she can't continue to run up debt is borderline abuse. Lol

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (5 children) | Copy

The funny thing is I took a look at the BP subreddit which apparently mocks TRP and how we are abusive and shit. Yet we don't tell guys to beat their wives and emotionally abuse them. We just think rationally about situations and see the world for what it is.

We improve ourselves and don't take bad deals. Like staying married to someone in $17K worth of debt. We promote frugality because it's smarter to live under your means, than living above them.

It's absurd because closing the credit card wont 'ruin' her credit lol. Credit companies will give you cards so easily, even if you've suffered through a bankruptcy for christ's sake. In what world does closing a credit line result in financial ruin? Not this one, I assure you

[–]1GroundhogLiberator27 points28 points  (3 children) | Copy

Nothing beats this comment:

Don't forget to include some personal fun money in your budget (given your income with no kids, you can afford it). It doesn't have to be a ton, but that will go a long ways towards her not resenting you, if both her and you have like $100 a month or whatever to buy shoes, clothes, video games, whatever your fancy, without having to get your partner's permission first.

Noted: If you want to keep your wife from resenting you, the woman who vowed to love you in sickness and in health, all it'll take is $100 a month in "fun money" to buy whatever she wants to wear for Chad's bedroom girls' night out.

Yea dude. Most people do not think, rather they feel with their emotions and then find 'factual' information to justify it no matter how ridiculous.

Don't be fooled that the TRP is exempt, though. The only men on here who are legit are the ones who found the TRP without having any problems with women, guys who have never been negatively affected by feminism but still arrived at TRP conclusions.

We are talking about less than 1% of the population that is capable of true objectivity. Others just have a bias that happens to support a factually correct view.

how a man cannot be utterly horrified upon reading this is what really baffles me. She basically said he should fucking cover it whilst expendning effort training her in financial matters(something that isn't fucking hard to learn how to do, google it for christ's sake...) so that when the marriage fails, she will be better off. LOL. like how does the guy not lose out in this situation. He basically lose a fat chunk of cash and then spends time teaching her the ways of credit so that she can leave him, financially secure and all. wow

17k would give him more and better sex by being spent with good prostitutes, instead he spent them (and much more i guess) for some once a week starfish duty sex for a few years (until the wife will suck all the money from him and proceed then to rape divorce him).

All for what, affection? He miss the times when he was a child and mommy give him affection, so now he search it on this gold digger.

Well guess what, it's just acting, only mommy is able to give a child real love.

[–][deleted] 27 points28 points  (16 children) | Copy

Exactly. I mean I get wanting to be in a relationship with woman you can hang out with and stuff, regardless of if people think it's blue pill. The thing I don't get is when you find out she's $17K in debt, he just paid it off for her. That's stupid. If you find that out, either break up with her, or set up a plan where SHE pays it off eventually.

[–][deleted] 41 points42 points  (11 children) | Copy

From a BP perspective it makes perfect sense though. If you alone had a bunch of savings and a bunch of debt you would obviously use your savings to pay the debt so you're not paying a bunch of interest. So the thought is, well we're a team now, her debt is basically my debt, and we're in this for the long haul (ie. forever) so why shouldn't I pay all her debts? In the past when I was more naive I could have easily fallen into this trap myself.

I do suppose in the highly unlikely scenario where they end up being happily together forever, then this "investment" will have paid off and was only a minor bump in the road along the way.

Unfortunately considering that she's been dishonest from day 1 of their marriage I think it's only a matter of time before his dream of a white picket fence and 2.5 kids with his loving wife is shattered when she, now free of that pesky credit card debt, rides off into the sunset on Chad's motorcycle.

Main character goes insane during divorce rape proceedings, loses job bc his company doesn't like his emerging red pill character, ends up in shitty studio apt paying alimony and child support for Chad's kid, off of a line cook's salary, and he ends up being the biggest Chad that ever lived by knocking up everyone's gf in his building that he sells weed to. Stacks cash and moves away to Asia into his shanty with a submissive housewife that blows him twice a day and makes the best stirfry. The End.

That is true from a BP perspective the whole my money and debt is both and vice versa. Back in times when marriages lasted a lot longer and stuff, this made sense. The problem lies in the fact that she literally kept the debt a secret, until they are married.

Imagine it was a different type of secret, but the guy hid it. Like he had an affair for about 3 years during their relationship and they got married 6 months ago. The pitchforks would be out and rightfully so, saying he's a jerk and to dump him.

Unfortunately since it's a woman, that wouldn't be the case. They would tell the guy to man up, forgive her and never bring it up.

[–]Mckallidon1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

A similar situation with my ex; she was in school (and to be fair, was on a full ride scholarship and so didn't need to go into debt) whereas I was out working. She wanted to go out to eat, go on trips, buy nice furniture, etc. and I'm like: no, we are both going to live like students. I didn't want her to get entitled to living like we were both pulling in $80k+/yr until she actually was pulling in that much.

However, she didn't like that, and sought out examples from her peer group where their boyfriend paid for all sorts of shit. Like her roommate's bf paid for her rent! Yeah, I wasn't going to be a chump. I told her that I'm not going to do that unless we're married, and particularly unless you're raising my kids. Welp, she thought her pussy was more valuable than that so broke up with me. All's fair I guess.

[–]zxDanKwan12 points13 points  (2 children) | Copy

I believe there's a tax form called an "injured spouse" amendment or something that lets you get out of responsibility for debts incurred prior to marriage.

I didn't find TRP until about 9 years married, but way back at the beginning, I used the injured spouse thing to avoid my taxes being hit harder because of her debts.

Applying TRP has definitely taken my marriage up a few notches, for both of us, but I'd still tell any single guy to stay away from marriage. Even though I'm perfectly happy in mine, at least for the time being, there's too much at risk to encourage other guys to jump into this shark tank.

[–]KeithRSRedPill0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Keeping debts that are incurred prior to marriage separate makes sense but there is still an issue involved with marrying someone who has large debt. If someone has large debt, they are so bogged down with paying it off that they can't contribute as much to the mortgage, car payment, children expenses, etc associated with their married life. You get to give their debt back to them in the case of divorce, but it's still basically on your dime while married. It wouldn't surprise me if many divorces are initiated by people who've had their debt recently paid off by the soon to be disposed of spouse.

[–]zxDanKwan0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

That's kind of why I don't recommend marriage. In my case, everything worked out. The debt was insignificant to me, plus she managed to pull enough side jobs to handle her debt on her own, so everything worked out. Not something I'd recommend to anyone else, though.

[–]malthuswaswrong4 points5 points  (13 children) | Copy

The white knight is prowling Gotham tonight.

That sounds like how people have always protected their land and playthings to me. Kiddo lol. I'm probably older than you keyboard warlord. All joking aside all cultures have ideals and what people actually do. The sacred and the profane. In the Middle Ages women were treated this way. And it was normal. Before the Renaissance after the fall of Rome women were literally treated like property. Only wealthy women were treated like more valuable property and had it slightly better because they had a bit more honor, because of her bloodline, or genes. Instead of being traded for goats and an acre, they were traded for prime real estate. This is how the Myceneans, who conquered the egalitarian Minoans thought of women, one of many waxing and warnings in the West. Only men had honor in these times. Men spoke for women and women went from their father's house to her husbands house with arrangements made like buying their son his first car. All dark age western societies went this way. The Greek Dark Age was no different than the Middle Ages. This is the patriarchy SJWs and blue pillers rant about. Historically women didn't get above house cat until the economy was good and there was something for people to actually gamble with. Otherwise women were broodmares who came with an insurance policy to cover the liability called a dowry. And often the better the women the son's family had to trade something of value or be worth currying favor for. Quid pro quo. Women were sold as spaces or servants. Traded for livestock or land or sold for cash.

What about Kings who killed their wives? What about men who sent their wives back to their families? Or were abandoned if they did not take her back. What about the fact that women legally could not participate in democracy, speak in court, take oaths or legally own property. Divorce has been one-sided for most of history. What about women slaves. Who were allowed to be married?

You act like the West has been simple and static for five thousand years. And that the west is the only culture worth mentioning. What about Islamic culture? Chinese?African? Who have all interacted and influenced the west for thousands of years. Or have been very similar in this regard for similar reasons. Take a joke. Sorry I offended your vagina.

[–]Shako122 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

Exactly. So many women of today are going into stupid amounts of debt for awful degrees. I don't even understand how they get into that much student loan debt in the first place. Oh I know, they thought they were above community college, so they just siphoned off student loans for everything at a university (dorms, study abroad, spring break, bars, and the list goes on). And when they graduate with their liberal arts degree, they constantly spout off to going to such-and-such school while making 25-30k a year. With all of that bullshit, it would make much more financial sense to get your long term squeeze from a high school graduate.

[–]limpingrobot 1 points1 points [recovered] | Copy

Hey know.

A Disney love is a disney love ok. Its that rare thing you dont find with many women. But its there not always mutual but the idea of it exists emotionally. Its what we'd call a Pair Bond. And you dont really have control over who you feel it for but it can be overcame.

I mean a Mommas boy who hasnt had any experiance with women who still has those same urges all of us men have. Then when he meets a women he lusts after he may misconstrude that for love.

The pull is too strong. Our entire sexual drive is in place to drop logic at the door just to have a chance of conceiving another member of the species. Only to feel deflated and shame directly after it. These guys won't stand a chance. They live in denial and if they meet their duties as a good partner somewhere down the road there is loving sex on the table for them. Sad.

It's bad out there right now. All of my friends in their mid 20s are emerging young professionals, yet I keep having to force feed them with RP knowledge. I consider them to be near the top of the food chain in terms of Millennials, but god damn are they clueless about human nature. At this point I may as well make air plane sounds and fly the spoon into their mouths. I almost just want to ditch them all and only befriend the dark triad types, but even those guys are hard to find today.

[–]ryeFL 9 points9 points [recovered] | Copy

I was glad to see the top comment at least mentioned that a man should get a background check on their potential partner before marrying. Assuming TRP isn't universally against marriage, or even if they are, it is prudent prior to a business merger for "due diligence" - a lot of men do not bother doing this, and that advice is too little, too late.

At least the person can serve as a warning to other men who have incentive not to be a chump. But now it is too late for him.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

I think for the most part, TRP including myself thinks you shouldn't get married, but if you must, everything must be on the table. What assets you have, how much you are making, any DEBT, etc. Everything has to be out in the open.

[–]cosine887 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

The comments are unbearable.

that 17K should be viewed as a gift even if you have plans to be "paid back." This will avoid resentment and nothing kills a marriage like resentment. You need to figure out a way of letting it go. The 17K should never be brought up in arguments or as something you hold over her.

It's abusive to not hand over your entire paycheck and all earnings to her. You should ask for an allowance and she should control the money entirely.

Yeah, actually had a bitch say that to me. First ex was bipolar and horrible with money. She could waste 6k in two weeks with absolutely nothing to show for it. How, I have no idea. Fuck I can live very comfortably on about 1k a month in bills. I was in the military where a bad check written by your dependent can cost you rank, income, and all sorts of creative punishment. There was no fucking way I would give her access to my bank. That bitch said that to me after she and her husband are having three ways with my wife and making videos of it that got passed around the base.

The second one would pay my bills for me, never spent a dime without asking first, and even asked my permission to buy stuff with money she earned. Within minutes of her charging a motel room to fuck the idiot she is with now, her card was shut off and she was removed from accessing the account. She knew it would only take one fuck up, and that was a major one.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

$6K in two weeks? Unless you are balling out like some rich multi millionaire, like Jay-Z or P Diddy, that's crazy.

[–]2 Senior Endorsed Contributorvengefully_yours0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Her husband now somehow got veteran disability, despite doing only 4 years, during the 80s, no injuries, no trauma, do deployments, no danger. How the hell he managed that is beyond me. Anyway that amounts to about $3k a month. Then he got ssdi, which is about $1200 or so. Now they're at 4200. Add in the 1600 a month thanks to me paying child support, and they're right at the 6k for 10 years. All of that money is tax free, so it's all take home so to speak.

Now they drove an old pos minivan, he can't fix shit like I can. His highest paid job after the military was doing laundry for a rest home. They lived in hud housing only paying $200 for rent and nothing for utilities, because the state paid that for them. They should've been sitting on a big pile of cash with everything paid for, always have food, and never worry about money.

Fat chance. The bitch was always out of money in the 2nd week of the month. No more food until the first. My kids attest to this being the norm. They only got new clothes when I bought them for the kids, no toys, and she pawned the pc I sent to my kids so I could talk to them, then took the laptop for herself when I got them one of those.

Fuck, if I had that much cash rolling in for doing nothing I'd be building a crazy amount of shit, hotrods, houses, investing, and always building equity. She wasted it all. Ten years of that shit. Now she bought a house for 130k on a 30 year note no less, she is getting zero from me. If he dies, which is probable since he is 57, diabetic, in poor health, and never took care of himself, she will be left with 1300 a month to live on. Just barely enough to pay her mortgage.

You can't fix stupid. But the state will probably give her handouts when he kicks off. Definitely the worst thing to happen in my life was her. Including years of systematic abuse from my family, two wars, and my second divorce.

Woman 2: Need a home loan fast? At the American Bank of Los Santos, we'll help you get the debt you need to make life easier. We'll show you how to look richer, and be poorer!

It's only a risk if you get into money troubles or the economy changes, which doesn't seem likely! We know living in the suburbs is a constant competition, where you're defined by your lawn and your siding.

Woman 2: Call American Bank of Los Santos when you need to add a jungle room addition with a rec swing or a Jacuzzi for eight! Now that the kids have moved out and have drug problems of their own, maybe it's time to install a luxury marble wet bar so you can get drunk in private! American Bank of Los Santos.

I've said this before, and it's one of the harder RP truths to accept: Most men who are treated poorly by women deserve to be treated poorly, because they put up with that poor treatment, and even encourage it.

If women are treating you poorly, you have nobody to blame but yourself for being so weak that you're unwilling to cut them out of your life.

The majority of the replies are just retarded:

"You should have discussed this before you were married. That's on both of you..."

How was he supposed to discuss it with her when she was actively hiding the fact that she racked up $17,000 in credit card debt from him? He clearly said she "came clean" about it to him two weeks ago.

I wonder if the posters would have such a forgiving attitude about other acts of deception. For example what if one of them "came clean" that they have been seeing prostitutes behind their partners back? Or that they gave their partner herpes; because they hid their status from their spouse until they got married. I'm so glad I woke up and took a hard look at the facts before I did something stupid like get married.

My wife became a top cam girl, like #2 on a popular site. Men were sending her crazy amounts of money every month - not even to see her online but just to be a white knight. Said she felt guilty sometimes for recieving it, but honestly if they didn't burn it on her they would just throw it away on another woman who equally had care in the world for them.

You can't help these guys. It's a decision they are making themselves. Psychotherapy could but sadly social programs for men, or any other exclusive support are ... basically non-existent.

We are going down the path of the Japanese Hikorimori, where men who shut themselves in for 10+ years, or their entire life - is considered perfectly acceptable. Just keep bringing that paycheck home.

Not at all surprised she was hiding all that in her closet until marriage, it's just a shame that women can't be adult enough to bring that out in the open BEFORE things get more serious. They spring it on you at the threshold where you can't really just bail. It's so fucking underhanded that it's fatal.

[–]Ultimate_Failure1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

What I would've posted, which probably would get me banned:

If she's really worth keeping around, you should divorce her, let her repay her debts, then remarry her. Nothing would be lost except a little of her dignity, which is her own fault.

Most likely her debts would continue to grow, and then you could wash your hands of her and keep looking for a woman who is worthy of you.

[–]pineapple9981 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I despise this type of men.

They make life hell for the rest of the men by giving their life away to random women and making women expect this from any man.

It is like you sell ice cream at 2 dollars an ice cream and next to you there comes a truly retarded and stupid guy which sells ice cream for 0.1 dollars and borrowes money from banks to cover his losses... and he is doing this to take you out of the competition.

In economic is called dumping and there are tough laws against this.

[–]Hitlers-Happy-HR-dpt0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy

I'm conflicted on this because he's already in too deep and he can't exactly kick her to the curb for this. Getting married before having financial disclosure (married at all really) was his first mistake. however now that they are married her bullshit is now his bullshit and getting the debt knocked out and off what is now part of his credit is a good idea. However, giving her access to the bank account after what is clearly a pattern of poor financial decisions was also a mistake. Allocating her an allowance could be construed as abusive in the event of divorce so I'm not really sure what the solution is. Perhaps if he made it her idea to have him allocate her part of the budget in cash without giving access to the checking or something.

[–]Ultimate_Failure0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Fuck that, cut your losses. Get a divorce or an anullment. She can keep her debt, and he his assets.

[–]KeithRSRedPill0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Since they're recently married with no kids and her debt prior to marriage is on her dime, her being able to take 1/2 of his estate is not valid. He can divorce her in no fault states for any reason, including financial infidelity. Easy to cut his loses now but once he willingly pays her bills, then it's all on his dime. She could very well hit the road after Mr White Knight gets her bills paid and then she could do it all over again if she is able to find her next victim/sucker.

Secondly, all of the responses are along the lines of "marriage is forever, she's your other half now and whats hers is yours and yours is hers."

Twenty-one years of marriage have convinced me that my wife is conveniently ignorant about money. You try to have a candid, mature, real discussion about what you can afford and manageable debt, and many times you may as well be talking to a mannequin. About one year ago my wife quit her full time job with health insurance, went to live with her daughter, and left me to help the son finish college. She now wants me to provide health insurance for her, which even if I did the "right" thing, would put me on the family plan and cost me $100 more a week in insurance. I currently insure our son in college which, at this point, has made me insurance poor. I cannot afford to insure them both at this point. When I ask her, even if I do this, how does it benefit me? She told me I was being selfish. I think I would have had better luck with the mannequin.

[–]KeithRSRedPill0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Same here except married longer. I believe it to be part of a woman's characteristic of avoiding responsibility and accountability when it comes to financial planning. If my wife is typical of other wives, they don't care how the money gets there but it better be there and you better not suffer any investment loses. It's comical how financial investment commercials usually show the investment genius wife leading the dumb husband around and making all of the decisions. In my personal experience, if I had left it up to my wife to make investment decisions we would never be retiring and would have to work til death do us part. I would just as soon be making the investment decisions anyways, but I agree with the wife being conveniently ignorant about money.

was of the blue pill mindset when i got married but even then i had enough sense to
