“I hit the floor…in a lot of shock. I called him and made him come home to face. He denied it at first and then said it makes sense because my sister is an adult living under our roof and so he expects her to pay rent. I screamed in my head and told him how it happened because of Disable her!!! And that money is supposed to go to her care, and most importantly, it should never have touched her money,” she continued.

She asks him to pay back all the money she took from her sister. He said that if she was going to live with them, she would have to pay the rent. She threatened to call the police if the money was not returned. Shocked by her statement, he left.

Other Redditors have taken to the comments section to discuss their opinions on the OP’s situation.

u/genkichan wrote: “You have moved a disabled person into your house and this is disrupting your marriage. Apparently he didn’t really want to,” he shouldn’t have hidden financial issues from you that way either. He feels entitled to some form of it. Rent and that’s not completely wrong per se. You both suck at the lack of communication, figuring out expectations with each other and finding a solution for everyone involved. You’ve moved your sister to her. It doesn’t seem like a joint decision.”

“Full stop,” u/Chocolatecakeislife defended the OP in response to the comment above, with over 8,000 upvotes, “Her husband steals from a disabled person. The argument ends there. He steals either he pays her or the police can handle the theft. It’s That simple. All other details in your comment are irrelevant.”

“Part of taking care of her is living in your house, it makes sense that she’ll pay the rent. That’s literally what benefits you get. I’ll go with her. [Everyone Sucks Here]. While your husband is right, and your sister needs to pay the rent (as her benefits are part of her care and part if her care is a living expense) he shouldn’t have done it behind your back. You suck at yelling at your head, threatening the police (who would probably agree with your husband anyway) and making a one-sided decision to take your sister for free,” u/SpaceCrazyArtist said.

U/Ryan233tiger shouted, “[You’re the A**hole]. I doubt you had a conversation with your husband about housing your sister for the rest of your life before marriage. SSDI is literally to pay for living expenses. Even if you have extra space for your sister in your house already, she is still using the utilities and eating groceries. Having her there costs your husband money.”

They continued, “She says your sister has been there for 8 months and noticed ‘hundreds’ missing. It seems she doesn’t pay anything more than $125 a month. That’s beyond reasonable, and he’s clearly not trying to steal your blind sister.”
