This is what happens when you take advantage of your relationship. In an ideal partnership, each partner gives their fair share. Of course, not everything under the sun can be 50/50; that’s unrealistic given the state of the job market. However, a good partnership requires compromise and a fair breakdown of each individual’s contributions. We know that most partnerships do not function like this and that when these ground rules are never set up, oftentimes the whole partnership ends up on uneven, unequal ground.
In this relationship, which was described by the Redditor in the r/pettyrevenge subreddit, OP’s girlfriend made more money but was irresponsible. She contributed next to nothing to their apartment, and it turns out, she was duplicitous in other ways. OP caught her girlfriend in a lie and discovered proof that she was cheating on her. So what did OP do? She moved out and took absolutely everything with her except a roll of toilet paper and plastic cutlery.
Why is it that the people who cheat are also the people who contribute the least emotionally (and in this case also financially) to the relationship? Our take is that they were subconsciously selfish and uninvested the whole time or they were never wired to know how to give enough to be in a successful relationship in the first place.
