A woman has asked if she is in the wrong for refusing to give a share of her inheritance to her brother’s ex-girlfriend. Disowned by her family, they have had little contact for years, but this didn’t stop his ex’s demands. Here’s what she had to say.
Her grandmother passed away
Recently, the woman’s grandmother passed away, and the woman was the sole benefactor of her will. Although her grandmother was not overly wealthy, she had savings, a car, and a house that she left to the woman. The woman’s father, her grandmother’s only child, had made it clear in the past that he wanted nothing from her inheritance.
She has an older brother
The woman has one sibling, but it has been five years since she saw her brother. He was disowned by their family for doing things such as stealing from many of his relatives and far worse.
He has a son
When the woman last saw her brother, he had a one-year-old son, but he and his girlfriend “had no interest in him being around” their family, and often, the man would use his son as a “bartering chip” against his parents.
Her brother’s ex-girlfriend reached out
The girlfriend of the woman’s brother, who is now “his ex, apparently,” reached out to her just one day after her grandmother’s funeral. Although she messaged the woman quite a bit, her overall question was asking when the will was going to be read so that she could be in attendance.
The woman was stunned
Asking why she wanted to be there, the ex-girlfriend of the woman’s brother noted that she was “obviously” coming to find out what her son was getting as an inheritance. The woman was “beyond shocked at the audacity” and told her that her son would not be getting anything.
This made her furious
The ex-girlfriend was livid when she heard this, demanding to know why her son had not been included in the will. The woman responded by noting that she and her brother had never really acted as part of the family. She feels she made a mistake by telling her that she herself received things in the will.
Demands were made
“She began to demand I split it with him, stating that the nice house was much too big for a single, 21-year-old girl, and how I didn’t need it as much as her as she had a child to take care of, and how I was being selfish and should sign it over to her, or give her a cut of the money for my nephew’s future,” she said.
The woman refused
In response, the woman said no and asked her not to contact her again. Since then, the ex-girlfriend has taken to social media, telling people that the woman had “stolen her son’s future and food from his mouth.”
Was she right?
This is something that has stressed the woman out, as while she doesn’t care about the ex-girlfriend at all because of “what she put her parents through years ago,” she feels slightly guilty for her nephew, as none of this was his fault.
The internet responded
One person said, “If you wanted to do something nice for him, you could set up a trust in his name that only he will have access to when he’s 18.”
Another commenter noted, “You don’t have a child to care for, and her child is not your responsibility.”
