Money can be a tricky subject in any relationship, and for one Reddit user, it was the cause of a major argument. The user, a 32-year-old woman, has a high-paying job and often buys her fiancé expensive gifts. However, she draws the line when her fiancé demands that she buy him an expensive watch. After repeatedly asking her to purchase the watch and causing a scene in public, the woman followed through on her warning and left him at the mall. He then proceeded to blow up her phone with angry calls and even involved his friends in the argument. Now, the woman is turning to the internet to ask if she was in the wrong for standing her ground. What do you think? Should she have just given in and purchased the watch, or was she right to stick to her boundaries? Join the debate in the comments below.
