In today’s world, basic necessities are hard to obtain for most people – a lot of us try our best to provide for our families and take care of ourselves to the best of our abilities. And if we find a partner who supports us and understands our goals, life gets just a little bit easier. But, in general, life isn’t easy, and most people want what you have.
Today’s story is about a woman who got her own home by working hard. After moving in with her, her boyfriend asked her to put his name on the house’s deed because he’d be helping around with the house. Yep, he actually asked such an audacious question.
The queen of our story is Erika Strong Rodri; she works as a realtor and also shares her journey on TikTok. In one of her videos that received over 1.4 million views, she expressed how her boyfriend just moved in and wanted his name on the house’s deed because he’s going to be “paying” for stuff around the house.
Erika wrote in her video:
“My boyfriend just moved in with me, I bought this home a year ago by myself.”
“He wants me to add him to the title since he will be paying for stuff around the house.”
Erika wasn’t having any of it, the music in her video syncs with Erika saying “Yeah, f*** no.”
Her audience wasn’t having any of it, either. Here are some of the best comments from her video:
Paying for “stuff” around the house is not even remotely close to owning your own home; they’re worlds apart. A good man would appreciate you for you, not for what you own, and he’d definitely never ask for something so audacious.
Good on you, Erika, for standing your ground and not letting anyone tell you otherwise. Just like your audience, we have the same stance – you do you, queen!
