A 24-year-old man expresses his concerns about his father’s relationship with a younger woman and what it meant for his inheritance. Here is what he had to say:
The man, a 24-year-old man, was concerned about his father’s relationship with a younger woman, Laura, whom he believed was a gold digger.
His father, a retired wealthy man, had assured him that he would never marry or have any more children besides him, as he wanted to leave everything to him. However, last year, his father informed him that he and Laura were going to have a baby, much to the man’s disgust.
She Tricked him
He accused Laura of tricking his father into becoming a father at 50 and warned her that she would not be getting any of his father’s money when he died. This shocked Laura and she expressed her upset to the man’s father, who agreed with his girlfriend.
Laura was insulted by his accusations and the man continued to call her a gold digger. He also expressed concern that she might try to change his father’s will and leave everything to her family, leaving his family’s legacy in the hands of a stranger.
He Ran Errands for Daddy…
The man worked for his father by running errands and helping around the house, but he was worried that Laura might expect to receive money from his father’s estate. He believed that his father should not support her financially and that she should get a job of her own.
Remaining in the Family
The man was trying to protect his family’s legacy and was not motivated by money. He loved his father and appreciated the financial support he received from him, but he also wanted to ensure that his family’s wealth and property remained in the family.
“I just want to make sure that my father’s legacy is protected,” he said. “I don’t want some gold digger to come along and take everything that my family has worked so hard for. My father has been so generous to me, and I want to make sure that his generosity is not taken advantage of.”
A Family Legacy
He hoped that his father would see his point of view and make the right decisions for their family’s future. He also hoped that Laura would understand that his concerns were not about her, but about protecting his family’s legacy.
The Internet Responded
This shocked commenter wrote, “He might be 50, but he’s not working a high stress job in his 50s like a lot of people have to meaning he’s going to be there for all the kids childhood (subject to health of course). 50 isn’t that bad. Someone doesn’t want to share his toys.”
More Shocked Comments
Another person had this to say, “I agree that was my first thought; that OP is the gold-digger. He doesn’t care about father’s happiness or new sibling. All he cares about is that he doesn’t get all his dad’s money now. Gross.”
A Final Comment
This last person posted this, “It sounds like OP is in general upset about his dad and honestly acting kind of childish for a 24yr old. What you’re sad you’re not daddy’s only child anymore? Grow up. Also how is a 50yr old grown man getting “tricked” into having another kid. Its almost like he was there when she got pregnant. It’s almost like people’s minds can change! Shocker I know! If your dad was serious about not having kids, there are a few things he could have done for himself. Just say you’re worried about your cut of inheritance not being as much anymore and move on.”
