A man shared a story about how he became homeless after the separation of his parents and he blames his mother for his broken childhood.
He stated that the divorce was caused by her mother’s gambling habits.
Here is the story:
Im 25 this year and I stayed with my father at the same home since I was a child. However, when I was in primary school my mother moved out and soon they divorce.
The mother paid a very minor share in the flat we stay in but she did not ask my father to sell it.
So fast forward to 2 years ago, my mother is in need of money and forced my father to either sell the house or pay her sure of the HDB.
My mother needed the money as she has a problem with gambling, this was what triggered the divorce in the first place.
So my mother ran out of money and now my father is forced to sell it. His selling the home means that I will be homeless and he intends to move to Vietnam as he already has a home and family there.
After dragging here and there, my father finally sold the house and I am out renting a flat. How often do you hear about Singaporeans that need to rent their own property?
So I am basically homeless and have been shifting here and there finding rental rooms to stay.
Although I am not very poor and I am able to afford to pay the property rent I wished none of this had happened.
Whenever a couple gets into a fight and breakup up, next comes the splitting of property and finally, the children suffer.
My mother told me, she never had the intention of selling the home. My mother said she waited I was old enough to feed myself before selling it.
I told her “What difference does it make? Because of your dirty habits I grew up in a broken home and now I’m homeless”.
Even after getting her share of the sold property, she splurge all the money at MBS and now she has the cheek to come ask me for money.
