A wife who felt that her husband was stingy took to social media to ask other netizens for advice on how she could live with him.

In an anonymous post to popular confessions page SGWhispers, the woman wrote: “Am I wrong or is my husband stingy? Posting this in need of advice on how to live with a potentially stingy husband”.

The 30-year-old woman wrote that she grew up in a very poor family where they had to work very hard to make money. However, she felt that it was difficult for her to enjoy the “fruits of her labour” because her 33-year-old husband’s family was also stingy. Her husband would also always tell her she was wasting money.

She shared that the couple had $2 million in current wealth and $500,000 in combined income.

“I grew up with less than 1000 in my bank till I graduated uni and juggled part-time jobs while studying to pay for my school fees. Never got to go on exchange, live in hall, etc. Meanwhile, he always got to travel often and live a normal life growing up. His parents are millionaires with private property. However they also scrimp like crazy and groan about every expense”, she wrote.

Despite this, when using the toilet, her husband would not switch on the lights to save electricity. He would also not flush all the time and insist that the ‘half flush’ be used for everything.

“He reuses tissue that I throw on the floor or around the house. He stacks them up to reuse them regardless of whether they are clean or dirty”, the woman wrote.

She also said that her husband “showers only once in 2 or 3 days. He doesn’t wear shirt or underwear at home to save electricity on washing clothes. He rewears socks and clothes at last 3-5 times before washing them. He keeps badgering me to switch off all our ambience lights. When he’s alone at home, he just switches off all the lights and sits in the dark”.

In her post on Tuesday (Nov 15), the woman wrote that the couple had not travelled since the Covid-19 outbreak because her husband only wanted to travel to places that would cost them less. She added that he would also analyse her expenses and question her on them.

“However, he’s ok losing >50K in the recent FTX scandal. I already told him to take out his money once the red flags were there but he did nothing. After he lost that amount, he said he “felt nothing”. He also lost 100K+ in the stock market because he just buys trash and doesn’t do his own research. He “doesn’t like admin” so he doesn’t invest in tried and true ETFs or dollar cost average and just buys into hype”, she wrote.

She added that she grew up with less than $1000 in her bank account until she graduated from university and had to juggle part-time jobs while studying to pay for her school fees. She never went on exchange programmes or lived in hostels at school because of her finances. “Meanwhile, he always got to travel often and live a normal life growing up. His parents are millionaires with private property. However they also scrimp like crazy and groan about every expense”, she wrote.
