Woman issues ultimatum after tense argument with roommate: ‘Are you serious?’

A woman is upset her roommate won’t let her live with her boyfriend. 

She went on Reddit’s “Am I the A******” forum to share what went down. It all started when she and her boyfriend decided to move in together. The girlfriend made a proposal to her roommate: she would move him into their apartment or move out to go live with him. 

“I basically sat her down, told her that I wanted to start living with my boyfriend full-time,” the girlfriend wrote. “I understood that she might not be comfortable living with another person and that in that case, I would move out to go live with him. Either way, because of our lease, to be safe, I wouldn’t actually move out for two months which should give her plenty of time to find a new roommate if she doesn’t want him moving in.”‘

But the roommate did not approve of either option. 

“She can’t afford to live in our apartment by herself and she doesn’t want to seek out a new roommate (in all fairness, I understand not wanting to seek out a new roommate right now),” she continued. “And she doesn’t want to have my boyfriend come live with us. Basically, she wants everything to stay the same. We got to arguing and she said I was betraying her for a man. I said that either my boyfriend is moving in or I will be moving out, those are the options on the table. Staying the same as before is not one of them.”

The forum submission was somewhat polarizing. Users couldn’t really decide whose side to be on. 

“Are you serious?” one user commented

“You’re the a****** 100 percent if you are breaking the lease.,” another said

“You have your own life to live and nobody should have to sacrifice their pursuit of happiness for another,” someone added
