Man Allegedly Spends £6,300 of Honeymoon Money On a Gaming PC, and We Have Questions

The R/relationship_advice subbreddit is an endless source of entertainment. Take, for instance, this incredible post: A distressed woman’s fiancé spent all $8,000 (about £6,300) of their honeymoon savings on a gaming PC, and she’s looking for advice on what to do. My natural instinct was to shout, “DUMP HIS ASS!” There are many, many red flags in this relationship, the least of which is, uh, £6,300 is a lot to spend on a gaming PC. Even some of the most extreme DIY builds only amount to around £4,000. Taking peripherals into account, that still doesn’t total £6,300... unless he also bought a new chair and desk. This is a mystery I need to solve, and due to my steady 25-year diet of Unsolved Mysteries, Cold Case Files, and Forensic Files, I absolutely cannot rest until the case is cracked. Read More >>
