My Husband Wants to Build a House for His Mother But Not for My Mother

ADs (do your own research):

Something is bothering me. I got married to my husband a few months ago and now he wants to build a house for his mother, but he is refusing to do the same for my mother. I asked him to build for both mothers, but he isn’t happy about it. He told me that if we can’t agree on this, then our marriage isn’t going anywhere.

Before we got married, he was saying that he wasn’t ready because he wanted to build a house for his mother first. I told him that he could still build a house for his mother even after we were married because I thought it would take a long time for him to propose. He had been saving money to build his mother a house because she was renting. I supported him then, and I still do.

The problem is that he is not considering that my mother also needs a house, just because she is not renting. My sisters are also complaining about his behavior. I thought that once we were married, he would feel a sense of responsibility to build houses for both of our parents.

But now it seems like he is only interested in building for his own mother. It’s not that I am not supportive, but I am surprised that he is willing to build for his mother and do nothing for mine. He says that the money he has only covers one house, but I don’t understand why he can’t divide it.

I am starting to think that maybe I forced him into this marriage. I’m not sure how to deal with this situation. Can you please advise me?

Go and build a house for your own mother too and allow him be


You can’t force him to build a house for your mother just because he’s your husband, it’s his money, that’s not the right way at all to go about it
Ask him nicely, and if he doesn’t agree, let him be, it’s not a must he must build for the both of them
