‘You want to be with this woman forever? Marry her, lol Reddit then. You don’t need to spend tens of thousands of dollars on a wedding. Get a fair prenup that protects both of you, and show her you’re committed to her.’
Change in opinion: A commentor who originally thought he was in the right changed their mind when they saw he ‘wanted to have his cake and eat it too’
‘I’ve always said I have no intention to ever get married because I don’t think we need to spend tens of thousands on one day but we agreed forever fiancés would be ok as long as she gets a ring to show off lol,’ he explained.
While most thought that he was right to ‘protect himself’, some people did raise points about the girlfriend.
‘It makes sense that she’d be hurt if you were to buy a house for you, your gf, and your gf’s daughter to live in and make your gf sign a thing that says it is not in any way her house. You’d basically be saying that she’s a guest on your property, there only as long as you tolerate her. That’s a pretty scary place to be.
‘I think you are at a point where you need to give some serious thought to what your relationship is and what it requires from each of you. What do you owe each other? What would you each need if you broke up? How would you each get those things?
