A woman has a half-sister, Kylie, from her father’s affair, Kylie is pregnant and asks the woman to share her trust fund with her, which means she has a difficult decision to make. Here’s what she had to say:
She Had a Half-Sister
The woman said, “I have a half-sister, Kylie, who is the product of one of my dad’s affairs. Her birth resulted in my parents splitting up.”
They Weren’t Close
Her mom remarried two years later, and her dad moved away, not being a part of her life. Even though she knew about Kylie, they didn’t meet until she was 16, and they didn’t develop a close relationship.
She Had a Trust Fund
The woman’s dad had never had a stable income or lifestyle and had been addicted to gambling for most of the past twenty years. To help with the divorce, the woman’s grandparents paid for the woman’s education, gave child support to her mom, and even set up a trust fund for the woman when she turned 21. However, they didn’t do the same for Kylie.
Kylie Was Pregnant
The woman met her fiancé when she was 19 and never used the money from the trust fund. Recently, while having dinner at her dad’s place, he told the woman that Kylie wanted her phone number. She agreed to share it and her dad also mentioned that Kylie was pregnant.
And She Asked For Money
A few days later, Kylie called the woman. She explained that she had a low-paying job and lived in a place that wasn’t suitable for raising a child. The woman explained, “Kylie said that since I had a trust fund that she also should have got, I should split it with her so that her child doesn’t have to go through what she did.”
Kylie Was Persistent
The woman was surprised by this and said she needed time to think. But then Kylie started calling her every day, talking about her expenses, making her feel guilty, and saying the family owed her.
She Asked For Advice
The woman explained, “I talked to my grandfather and he said while it’s my money, he thinks I’d be an idiot to hand out large sums of money to someone I don’t know and who only wants to know me because she wants money.”
And Made Her Decision
Ultimately, the woman decided not to share the money and told Kylie, but she became angry and yelled at the woman, calling her selfish and spoiled. She blamed Emily if something bad happened to her baby or if the child grew up poor. The woman hung up and cried.
Was The Woman Wrong?
Her grandparents and fiancé supported the woman’s decision. Her dad said he couldn’t provide the same level of financial support as the trust fund because of his gambling addiction, but he would help as much as he could. But the woman was left questioning her actions and turned to the internet for advice.
The Internet Responded
One person said, “You don’t have a relationship with Kylie. Nothing about her situation is your fault or your responsibility. It’s your money, and you have no obligation to give it to her, pregnant or not.”
Another Person Commented
“Kylie is not your responsibility but that of her parents. That said, one doesn’t make a baby and blame others for that child’s living conditions. She has a responsibility to her child, not you. And if it wasn’t because of money, she wouldn’t give 2 monkeys about you. Go and enjoy your trust fund.”
