Many couples purchase vacation homes that they rent out to other people for most of the year and use as an investment. But what happens when you start wanting the spare home all to yourself?

One man is angry with his wife, who has been staying in the home they purchased to rent out and wants to keep it to herself.

He and his wife are in their 40s and have been married for 10 years. They have three children together. 

He’s been the sole earner for years and is very responsible financially. While his wife has a lot of skills, she is not good with money. In fact, he describes his wife as someone who could win the lottery and then go broke one year later.

“[Four] months ago, she convinced me to buy a home she found online to invest in as a short-term rental,” he said.

“My wife took care of furnishing and decorating the house; I wasn’t involved with that. For the first two months, we spent weekends there to work on the house. However, the house never seemed to be ready, according to her. When pressed after the nth time, she admitted she fell in love with the house and no longer wants to rent it out.”

His wife also told him it wouldn’t be worth renting out the house because they had spent so much money to furnish it.

Instead of finishing up the house and putting it up for rent, his wife has been spending every weekend at the house for the last two months while he’s been at home working and recovering from a recent surgery. 

He finally had enough and had an outburst with his wife. He sat her down and wrote down all the reasons why they couldn’t afford to keep the house without renting it out to other people. However, his wife still didn’t want to hear what he had to say.
