A woman in her late 20s was devastated when her father passed away. But when she was left his entire inheritance, her brother demanded she share the funds despite refusing to have a relationship with their late father.
Her Father Died
The woman said, ‘My dad recently passed; he has two kids, myself and my brother, but no other family.’
She Loved Her Dad
She had been very close to her father, calling him for a chat every evening and driving an hour to his house at least once a week to have coffee. Despite the long drive, she made the effort because she cherished their relationship. But her brother didn’t feel the same.
Her Brother Was Useless
The woman’s brother was a year younger than her, and he did not share the same bond with his father as she did. He lived in the same town, 10 minutes away from their dad, but never saw him. He would never call his father or try to spend time with him.
He Stood Him Up
The woman resented her brother’s attitude towards their father. On many occasions, the dad had tried to repair their fractured bond to no avail. Once, when her father was dying, her brother called him to arrange for them to go for a drink. The father arrived at their agreed location and waited… but his son never showed up. It was heartbreaking for the woman, who hated that her dying father had been stood up by his own child.
She Got Everything
After her father passed away, the woman wasn’t surprised when she received everything he owned in his will. She got his car, house, and all his worldly possessions, while her brother got nothing. The woman’s father had told her years before that he might cut her brother from the will, but she hoped their relationship would be repaired when the time came.
It Was His Own Fault
She was wrong. Her dad had stuck with his decision to cut his son out of his will, and when the brother found out, he was furious. He had expected to receive 50% of his father’s estate. That’s when things got awkward.
He Wanted Her Money
Upon realizing he would get nothing, her brother demanded she give him 50% of her inheritance. After all, he was her brother. But the woman said that she had to think about it. The money was hers, and it was her decision alone.
They Weren’t Close
Her brother not only had a broken relationship with his late father but his sister, too. He’d never made any effort with the woman, and she didn’t feel he was entitled to any of her money. However, she didn’t want things to be awkward at future family functions…
Her Family Told Her to Share the Money
The woman said, ‘my mom and the rest of her side of the family think I should split it.’
But it Wasn’t What Her Father Wanted
Despite her family urging her to share the money with her brother, the woman was conflicted. Wouldn’t that reward and allow her brother’s toxic behavior whereby he only talks to his family when it suits him? And her father had purposefully cut his son out and made her the sole benefactor of his will. Shouldn’t she honor his wishes? She didn’t know what to do, so she turned to the internet for advice.
The Internet Provided
One person said, ‘Your dad left everything to YOU, you’d be going against his wishes to split it with him.’
Others Chimed in
Another commented, ‘Sharing with the brother without a court order would likely be considered a gift for tax purposes.’
