A Daughter’s Firm ‘no’ to Using College Fund for Step-Brother’s Urgent Medical Bills Leaves Dad Furious – Should She Reconsider?

A girl’s parents divorced when she was young over her dad’s infidelity, and she went to live with her mom. Her mom saved her a generous college fund, but this was threatened when her brother became seriously unwell. Here is what the girl had to say:

The girl said, “My parents divorced when I was about seven because my dad had admitted to having an affair. My mom and I moved out of our house and into an apartment, while my dad immediately moved his mistress into our house because she was pregnant with my twin brothers.”

Despite feeling devastated, the girl’s mother showed strength and resilience. She went back to school, furthered her career, and managed to contribute a substantial amount of money to the woman’s college fund.

On the other hand, her father struggled to support his now larger family on a single income, with his new wife being a stay-at-home mom. As a result, he couldn’t contribute as much to the college fund.

Her Brother Was Seriously Ill

As the girl approached finishing school, she had promising college options ahead of her. However, her ten-year-old younger brother was diagnosed with a serious kidney disease that required expensive medical treatment. Her father became overwhelmed with medical debt and couldn’t continue paying child support.

The doctor suggested a costly treatment for her brother, which was not covered by insurance. With her father unable to take out a loan due to existing debts, he and his new wife approached the girl, asking to borrow her college fund to cover the treatment. Although they promised to pay the money back, the girl was skeptical, knowing it would be challenging for them to fulfill that promise.

But This Jeopardized Her Future

The girl said, “I really don’t want to give them the money because I know if I don’t get any scholarships, I wouldn’t be able to go to the college I want to without going into debt myself. My future would be at risk, and I know my dad wouldn’t help if I needed it.”

She Felt Torn

The money also technically belonged to her mother, who would likely refuse to hand it over. The girl was torn between helping her brother and not jeopardizing her future by handing over her college fund.

They Tried To Guilt Her

However, her father and his wife became furious with both her and her mother, trying to guilt her into providing the money. The girl grappled with guilt for her little brother’s situation, but the weight of her future and her mother’s rightful claim to the money weighed heavily on her mind.

Was The Girl In The Wrong?

With the situation causing tension and conflict, the girl questioned if she was in the wrong for not giving up her college fund to help her brother, whom she deeply cared for.

The Internet Responded

One person said, “The money isn’t yours, firstly. It was allocated by your mother for a specific thing. You’re damn right you’re not getting the money back if you loan them. It was grossly inappropriate for our father to ask for money from you.”

Another Person Commented

“You have a lovely, understanding, and clear-eyed view of this. He’d never pay you back and you’d be stuck under college debt for the next 20 years. Ask your mom to be the bad guy. She can have her divorce attorney send a letter telling him the funds are hers to control and she’s not giving up years of her savings for him and his affair partner’s expenses.”
