Living with a partner with a different schedule and social life can be difficult and frustrating. If one stays out really late partying or working, and the other has to wait up at home - it's no fun at all and can become the root of many problems. Which is why one woman took matters into her own hands and revealed, she charges her boyfriend 50 pounds if he doesn't make it home by 4 am.

Writing on Reddit, she explained that she and her partner have been in a live-in relationship for two years. She wrote: "After moving in together, I was still wrestling with alcoholism and stayed out a handful of times (about five times in a year) until 3 am. "Frequently, I'd irresponsibly allow my phone to die while I continued drinking. Every time, my boyfriend expressed that he hated this." Now it seems to be the boyfriend that has picked up the same habit and often stays out to between 3-5am, giving her little information about his whereabouts.

According to, she said it's not so much the problem of him going out as it was the fact that he would get angry when she stayed out late - and she stopped doing it for his benefit. "If either one us aren't home by 4 am, we have to give the other 50 pounds and no one can be angry," she explained.

How do I find out if my boyfriend is cheating on me?

"My reasoning is that he's either going to tire of paying the money and come home on time or afford me the same level of understanding for occasionally staying out until the bars close."

The woman took the issue online and also asked people their opinions on whether she was being unreasonable, to which most replied opposing her idea as it's not a good way to deal with relationship problems.

"Your lifestyles are not meshing," replied one person.

"This 50 pounds thing is a bad idea, it sounds like it's going to breed resentment, not actually encourage him to get home on time.
