    Hello. My friend purchased a piece of furniture for her boyfriend at Christmas. She has been paying for it in installments (it was over $2,000). They broke up last month. They are on good terms, but she is wondering if she should ask him to help her pay the installments now that they are broken up. I’m on the fence about this. If she had paid it in full I would know that it was NOT OKAY to ask for some money as it was a gift, yet I still feel that this was a gift and it might not be a good idea to ask for him to help. Any ideas?

      No having given a gift out of her means does not change anything. A gift is a gift and should not be asked for back. In future she should not give gifts she can not buy without installments.
