so mid-2o's son decided to move into his grandmother's house... partially to help her out but also to pay off his debt to be able to go to college (student loans went into default)... great-aunt's husband died so son moved out of grandma's house so great aunt can move in... son left his bed there for great-aunt... moved into his friends and has been sleeping on the couch ever since. son's pay is just $50 over his bills (which now includes rent- not even food!)
Would you buy son a bed?
(parents of son are kinda well off; dad just bought a new 2011 car, mom has bought the wii, a few 42 in hdtvs; 3, i think.... you get the point... the bed is only $150, but for some reason they refuse to buy it for him... they have a GREAT relationship so its not that)
** I'm his girlfriend. I offered to buy him a bed, but he kept declining!
he kept saying that as soon as his money is right, he'll get one.. so i went ahead and got him a bunch of clothes (about $300 worth- for a few different reasons for a present)... but it seems like one thing or another takes his money-- he helped pay for the great uncle's funeral, plus he had to cover another house mates portion of his rent, then the issues with his POS car! if its not the tires, then its the engine... then the tires they gave him, one was too small and completely blew up (had a big knot on it too!)...
i might get him a bed... but then there's also that man- ego... he already feels that i do too much for him when it should be the other way around (he should flower me with gifts.. in all honesty he does more for me than i do for him. just not financially if that makes sense)... the thing is, he DOES have a room there- everything else is nicely kept; his clothes are in the closet and dressers, etc... he's just missing a bed. lol
should i do it, or have i overstepped my helping? we've been together going on 4 yearsAnswer Question
