Bad Idea

It's a bad idea to wrongly accuse your girlfriend of cheating if she bought some major furniture for your house. This is at my rental house.

Before: Electric recliners in each end of these two couches. The center flips down with a cup holder.

After: Nothing left but some dog hair and dust bunnies.

Before: Nice rustic TV console with electric fireplace with a heater.

After: Need a stand for TV

Before: $3200 king size bed from the Mattress Firm. Remote controlled adjustable head and foot, massage, lights.

The mattresses were still under warranty - for only 7 days from when she called to ask about it - so she had the company come get them. There was no warranty on the fancy part so she kept that and moved it to her house.

After: need a bed.

I spent my Saturday babysitting the house, waiting for the moving guys to come get these pieces of furniture so I could make sure the house didn't get damaged.

Meanwhile, he's in Texas, wasn't aware that he's coming home to a half-empty house until today when she finally told him via text message. Over the course of the week he started out accusing her of cheating and calling her a 'ho' and switched to 'I love you and don't want to break up' once he got a hint that she might take the furniture. Today, he's telling her 'I want to get back together, but you need to get a lie detector test to prove you're not dating other men.' Not a lot of trust there.

What with the shipping the furniture back to her house and restocking fees on the mattress, she's out additional money, so all together she's out about $7000. And she's saying she's learned to not invest so much in a relationship.

Says she might start dating him again, but claims she won't make the same financial mistakes.

Never a dull moment on Brown Trout Lane!

Sounds, to me, like it serves him right.

Yes he surely did deserve it. He went through several stages -accusation, anger, name calling, let's pretend it never happened, and was surprised to find out that he'd crossed the bridge of no return somewhere along the way.

That's rough -- how long does it take to get a bed delivered? Not fun to come home to nothing. The couch/recliners look like my friend Brian's furniture, so I'm guessing this man might also be a big guy.

He has his previous bed up in the guest room, so he's been sleeping there, and there is a big easy chair and ottoman in the living room. He's not a big guy, he's a little skinny guy, which is why guns and camouflage and hunting are so important to him.

Wow! Just wow! I can echo Jeri's sentiment... I'm so glad to be in a respectful and loving relationship with a woman way above my deserts.

You're a special couple, well-grounded.

And I am so glad that I am in an uncomplicated and loving marriage.

Jealousy and insecurity do terrible things to a relationship. Someone who's never experienced it would never believe someone could be so silly and irrational.

Oh I am so glad I made a decision decades ago to stay/remain single!

Definitely has its advantages. This guy was supposedly single when I rented that house to him, but turns out he's one of those men who can't stand to be alone so always has to find a woman to live with him and blames her when he makes up stories in his head.
