A woman lost her sister and took over saving money for her two kids. But when they came of age, their deadbeat dad demanded a cut of the funds despite cheating on his wife while she was on her deathbed.
Her Sister Died
The woman said, ‘I lost my older sister 12 years ago.’
He Cheated on Her
The woman’s sister died, leaving behind two kids and a husband. However, her final year of marriage had been awful. She knew her husband had been seeing other people since she got sick, but she hadn’t wanted to leave him because she was worried about causing her kids extra trauma.
They Wanted to Protect the Children
The woman and her family knew that her sister’s husband had been cheating on her during her illness, but it was a well-kept secret from their kids even 12 years later. The woman hated her brother-in-law, and after her sister died, she wasn’t surprised when he tried to distance himself and his kids from her side of the family.
It Was the Kid’s Money
Her late sister, who hadn’t trusted her husband, had tried to ensure her parents and siblings had a strong relationship with her kids so that they could make a point for grandparents’ rights if they needed to. Before her death, she’d set up a small savings account for her children and passed the information on to her parents, who’d continued to add to it for years. The woman’s brother-in-law was purposely not told about the savings.
He Started a New Family
Very quickly after his wife’s death, the woman’s brother-in-law started a new family with one of the women he was cheating with. He had a son with his new wife and tried to keep his ex-wife’s family from building a relationship with the child. The woman fought to see her sister’s kids and her new nephew.
He Tried to Keep Them Apart
The woman believed he was worried she would tell his kids about his cheating. Her brother hated their sister’s husband and had always wanted to reveal the secret to his kids, but the woman told him not to. She held her tongue and never told them about their father’s infidelity, even though she knew they’d probably abandon their dad if they found out.
They Were Happy
When her late sister’s children turned 18, they were allowed access to their savings accounts. They were surprised about the money and extremely happy. But when their father found out, he was angry.
They Were Finally Adults
The woman said, ‘Both my niece and nephew are now over the age of 18, so the money and the accounts were signed over to them.’
He Wanted the Money
Their father, who’d expected there was some money hidden from him, was shocked at the amount. He was annoyed that his other children hadn’t received anything and claimed that it was unfair for him not to have been allowed access to the money earlier. He wanted to make sure things were equal between his family and kids.
Was She in the Wrong?
The woman thought her brother-in-law was pathetic. He clearly just wanted it all for himself. But he argued that he had a right to the money when his kids were minors. She wondered whether this was true and asked the internet for advice.
The Internet Provided
One person said, ‘He cheated on your sister and had the nerve to complain about how you treated him.’
Others Chimed in
Another commented, ‘If they’re old enough for you to sign over that money and handle it themselves, then they’re old enough to know the truth about their dad.’
