A man discovered that his wife gave $2,000 from their joint savings account to her sister's pyramid scheme. He confronts his wife and demands she gets the money back, or he will open a separate account for his share of the household expenses. The wife is upset and feels the man is unsupportive of her sister's potential to earn six figures a month.

The man argues that his wife invested the money without considering how he would feel about it and that it could cause financial harm to their family. The sister-in-law calls him an AH and a control freak.

Is he the a**hole for telling his wife to get the money back in this situation?

Introducing the cat and dog, who are now considered as kids.

Wife drains joint account for sister's pyramid scheme 💸

Discovering that your spouse has spent a large sum of money without your knowledge can be a huge shock. That's exactly what happened to one man who found out his wife had drained their joint account to fund her sister's pyramid scheme.

Not only did she invest in the scheme, but she also planned to quit her job and sell the products full-time with her sister. When confronted, the wife was upset and didn't understand why her husband was being unsupportive. This led to a heated argument with the husband threatening to open a new account for household expenses.

The situation escalated when the wife's sister also got involved, calling the husband a control freak. What would you do if you were in this situation? Share your thoughts and reactions in the comments below.
