Dumping Your Partner Over Debt?

by Dual Income No Kids on July 11, 2008 · 0 comments

Hi All,

Here is an interesting question for you. I was cruising the craigslist forums and I came across a posting by a guy who kicked his fiancee out of the house because she lied about having $60,000 in debt.

Supposedly, it got ugly. This guy packed all her stuff in cardboard boxes and pitched it out on the street. Then, he threw his fiancee’s credit cards at her “like ninja stars”. Later on he said that he she had to sleep in the office or in her car (clicky).

Pretty hardcore.

While I can’t condone the way he broke up with his finance, I do think that a serious breach of trust such as failing to disclose $60,000 in debt, under some circumstances might be grounds for ending one’s relationship – at least before you’re married.

But here’s the question: is it okay to dump your partner for lying about debt?

Best,

James
