The 'AmItheA**hole' forum on Reddit is one of the most popular but also divisive forums on the long-running social media site and often, you'll find a lot of heated debates in the comment section of posts.
Ad this particular case is certainly no different.
The anonymous man explained how he and his wife had 'substantial wealth' before they got married, so a prenuptial agreement that ensured that their assets remained separate made sense.
"Over the past two years, we've had many discussions about moving to a smaller town and getting a house near the beach," the man explained on Reddit.
"Two months ago, we bought the house for our upcoming move. We've already made the renovations we wanted, bought furniture, and will be moving into the new house soon."
He added: "Since we won't be living in this city anymore, I didn't see a reason to keep the house we currently live in and sold it without notifying my wife.
"Considering it's solely my asset, I didn't see the need to inform her in advance.
"Plus, selling and buying property is always a stressful process."
He continued: "On the day I finalised the sale, I told her that I had sold the house, and she was furious with me for not letting her know.
"She mentioned that she still needs a residence in this city and intends to come here frequently. I explained to her that I still have the apartment, which we can use whenever we need to be in the city, so there shouldn't be an issue."
The man went on to say that his wife is still upset with him, with her apparently telling him she should be involved in such an important decision.
But the man fought back: "The house was always exclusively my asset, just as she has her own wealth.
"She argues that it's a completely different situation because it's the house we've been living in, and we're moving in the next few days."
Thousands have flocked to the comment section of the post, with many in agreement that the man is in the wrong. Cool it's your money but damn is she your partner or what?
"If you can't talk through life decisions with your life partner and treat her like an equal why did you get married?" one person penned.
A second added: "Wtf is your marriage. It sounds more like a business deal than a relationship.."
While a third remarked: "She’s your wife not a roommate. Your wife shouldn’t be finding out what’s going on in your life after the fact."
