Woman walks out of fiancé's birthday party after he got himself expensive gift – but people say present isn't the issue | The SunJune 12, 2022
A WOMAN says she walked out of her fiancé's birthday party after he got himself an expensive gift and claimed it was from her.
However, Reddit users say that the woman is missing the main issue.
The woman explained her situation on Reddit using the hashtag, am I the a**.
The couple, who haven't been publicly identified, plans to marry. The woman shared that her fiancé is from a wealthy family while she isn't.
"His family can be a bit obsessed over looks and status. He’s the only child, so his parents spoil him all the time," the woman wrote.
She continued to share that the fiancé's birthday was coming up, and while she wasn't planning on getting him an expensive gift, she made him a floral photo frame for their upcoming nuptials.

When the fiancé and his parents heard of the gift she would give him, they urged her to reconsider, but the woman was firm in her decision.
"At the party and when he was opening gifts, I found out that he opened some box and pulled out Nike shoes and acted thrilled while thanking me for getting them for him,” she said in the post.
"I was confused. I said this wasn’t my gift and started looking for it among the other gifts.
"I asked where he put the floral frame, and he acted dumb. I got so mad. I told him in front of his parents that he shouldn’t have lied about what I originally gifted him and that if he was ashamed of it, then I [would] be keeping it."

After that the woman left the party.
Reddit users quickly expressed their opinions on the matter in the comment section, with many of them saying that the woman's actions weren't wholly justifiable.
"The floral frame gift for a future wedding picture: this was not a gift for your boyfriend. I suspect that this was a gift to yourself. That's not nice of you to do. A birthday gift is supposed to be about that person, not about you or you as a couple," one user said.
"This leads me to an ehh judgment. You for the above, the boyfriend for lying, and his family for fostering an environment that pushed him to lie. Going deeper than a judgment, maybe this blow-up was your way of ending the relationship. It sounds like you are unhappy with his lifestyle and his family."
Other users advised that the woman break off the engagement since it seemed she's not happy with her fiancé's lifestyle.

"YEP. maybe consider calling off the engagement since both of you clearly aren't compatible with each other," one user said.
"At this point, they should’ve had a game plan for how they deal with his family events, or either needs to accept that this is how his family acts and go along with it or give the fiancé an ultimatum that they either go LC with his family or break up," another user shared on the social media site.
