That would piss me off too. I hope you didn’t give him the money. Do you plan on keeping everything seperate after the wedding though? You may end up having this cnoversation a lot….

@MrsMcGyro:I agree. This sounds like a much bigger conversation that needs to take place about expectations regarding money, savings, and future goals. I can understand that without a discussion and set agreement, he may not feel the need to voluntarily contribute financially to the wedding, especially if it’s not something he actually puts value on. However, in the future, how are you going to split the saving for a home, children’s needs, retirement, home improvement projects, vacations…etc. Have you had any discussion beyond your day-to-day bills?

I would have an honest, serious talk with him about it, especially since it is bothering you so much. Talk to him about the sacrifices YOU are making and discuss your budget with him and working TOGETHER to reach that goal. Hell yes I would be pissed, but also keep in mind what a person earns and think about that proportionally to what they could possibly contribute.
