Kleptomaniac 9-Year-Old Boy Stole His Uncle’s $4K Engagement Ring, Got Kicked Out With His Whole Family

It’s deeply saddening to give someone who’s going through a tough time a hand and see them take this help for granted. However, it takes a strong individual to turn the other cheek when someone does you dirty. Especially if that someone is a very close friend or a family member. Yet, some believe that some people must learn from their mistakes and don’t deserve a second chance.

A man on Reddit shared a story about how he wanted to help his brother and his family out when they were in financial hardship. Yet, in return for his kindness, he had his engagement ring stolen by his 9-year-old nephew. The Original Poster (OP) let his brother and his family stay at his house but had to kick them out when the pricey ring he had been saving up for a year went missing.

Scroll down below to read the full story and get all the details. What would you do in OP’s situation? How would you react?

The OP knew that the nephew had kleptomaniac tendencies as he had previously got in trouble for stealing things

For that reason, the OP wasn’t very excited about letting his brother’s family live with him, but “family is family”

The man was worried for a reason because soon enough, his $4K engagement ring went missing, and he knew exactly who was behind this

The ring was nowhere to be found, and the OP said the family couldn’t stay at his anymore and had to leave

The brother kept calling the OP heartless for kicking them out during a tough time, which made him feel guilty

This Man Tells His Fiancée That His House Is In His Teen Daughter’s Name As An Inheritance From Her Late Mother, The Woman Throws A Tantrum

In today’s age, the man doesn’t own the woman anything. So does the woman. Although the patriarchal society is still thriving and men are expected to bring their wives to their property, times have changed. Some are very lucky to invite their special someone to live together in their own place, but that is no longer the case for many. With house prices increasing every year, it’s tough, some might think even nearly impossible, to become a homeowner. And unfortunately, the amount needed to afford a house isn’t the sum of money you can save by giving up Netflix.

Well, this post isn’t exactly about inflation or homeownership being millennials’ distant dream. Instead, it’s about the woman who felt entitled to live in the house that lawfully belonged to her fiancé’s daughter. The story goes that the Original Poster got engaged to a widower whose late wife left their home to their 15-year-old daughter. The OP was appalled to find out that the house they planned to move into together was not rightfully his and threw a tantrum.

The OP turned to Reddit’s AITA community to describe her situation and help her realize if she was “AITA for calling [her] fiancé a jerk?” Other than being named the A-hole, OP also received the title of a gold-digger.
