A Woman Wanted to Stop Funding Her Sister-In-Law’s Education and Lifestyle After Six Years and $300,000, but The Decision Wasn’t Well Received in The Family

A woman and her husband funded his sister’s education and lifestyle for six years. However, it reached a point where they felt she had to stand on her own two feet – causing family drama. Here is what the women had to say:

Her Husband Funded His Sister’s Education

The woman said, “My husband Luke (33 years old) funded his sister Julia’s (24 years old) education, undergraduate and graduate, for six years, and she recently graduated with her Master’s Degree. I met Luke when Julia was a freshman, so I was aware that he offered to pay for her schooling for six years – that was their deal.”

Luke had funded his sister’s education to the tune of almost $300,000. Luke, who had struggled with student debt in his early adulthood, wanted to ensure Julia didn’t go through the same ordeal.

He covered not only her tuition but also her living expenses, car, and other miscellaneous costs, enabling her to solely focus on her studies.

The woman explained, “Luke and I run our businesses together, and we combined finances after getting married, his business generates 10-15% more revenue than mine.

The woman added, “Four months ago we had a discussion with Julia and asked her what her plans were regarding her future after school. She said she wanted to stay near her friends, so Luke helped her secure a position where the starting salary was in the low six-figure range.”

But Julia Changed Her Mind

However, things took a turn when Julia decided to change her plans. She expressed a desire to continue her education in the UK, pursuing a second Master’s Degree and eventually a Ph.D., with the expectation that Luke would foot the bill.

They Agreed To Support Her

Initially supportive of her education, Luke and the woman had gifted Julia a rental property, where she would only be responsible for utilities. However, this new decision sparked a debate.

But Then They Got Cold Feet

The woman and her husband discussed the matter. They questioned the fairness of paying an additional $200,000 to $300,000 for Julia’s education, especially given that they had already provided her with extensive financial support. The woman firmly believed that it was unreasonable to continue funding Julia’s education when they had equally shared finances, with her own business contributing significantly to their income.

Was The Woman In The Wrong?

Julia was unhappy with their decision and turned to her parents and relatives for support. She accused the woman of hindering her chances to succeed in life. One of Luke’s aunts sided with Julia, arguing that since Luke had initially offered her a debt-free education, it was only fair to continue.

The Internet Responded

One person said, “She had a free ride through her masters. You helped her get a job with a 6 figure salary and a rent-free place. If she wants a second master’s and a Ph.D., she can do that either after working to save up the money or do it part-time while working full-time to pay her own way. Her sense of entitlement is frightening. You and your husband have done enough.”

Another Person Commented

Another person said, “Luke didn’t just cover her tuition. He completely financed her life for six years, like he was her dad. Then he got her a job and bought her a place to live. He has done more than enough for Julia. It’s time for her to be an adult.”
