Love, money, and property - a potent mix that often leads to drama. This is the story of a man who earns $320k per year, his girlfriend who makes $37k, and the $970k condo that's causing a rift between them. They've been living together in a rental condo since 2019, with him covering the majority of the rent and utility costs. But when he buys a new condo in one of the city's most desirable neighborhoods, things take a turn. 💔🏠

Equity or Not: The Condo Conflict's Climax 🏠💔
So, here's the crux of the matter: He's bought a new condo, she's moving in with him, but she's not on the mortgage or the title. Despite her contributing to the monthly costs, he doesn't believe she should have any equity in the property. Their future plans include buying a detached home together and getting married, but for now, the equity dispute looms large. He's even arranged for a 'goodwill payment' in case things go south. But the question remains - is he wrong for not wanting to give her equity in the condo? Let's delve into what the internet thinks of this situation... 🤔💭
