DH inherited some money at the start of the year. We bought a new car and at that time, my parents needed a car so we offered them our old one for £50 - it was 6 years old and runs perfectly. My parents are very short of money as my Mum hasn't got a job and my DH suggested after a while that we just give them the car. We didn't discuss it any more and I foolishly went ahead and told them it was theirs to keep and not to worry about the money.
Now my DH seems to have forgotten this conversation and is expecting them to pay something each month for it. He is asking me where the money is and I am to worried to tel him the truth.
What do I do now? I know it is all my fault but I know this is going to cause trouble.
Not sure what the issue is. Your DH suggested after a while that you give them the car - just tell him that you did what he suggested. Why do you think you are silly or foolish and this will cause trouble - is there something more to this?
If your DH suggested it to you, then from what you say, you merely relayed that to your parents. so, no, it is not your fault, but his! I think you just have to remind him that he said you should just give the car to your parents so that's what you did.
If he did suggest giving them the car as a gift, surely he cant have properly forgotton. Maybe he just needs a little reminder - e.g. "remember when you suggested we give them the car? Well, I've told them this already"
