Do you EXPECT inheritance money? Help settle a debate.....

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Help me settle a debate.....

If your grandparents passed away and left money to your family, by way of your parents, would you expect to be given a portion of that money? So as a grandchild there was no amount left to you specifically.

Example.....your grandmother passes away (grandfather died years ago) she leaves a total of approximately $800k. In her will it states all monies will be divided equally between her children for them and their families. The grandmother has 4 children, one of which is your father. Would you expect your father to divide some of the $200k between you and your siblings?

Hey I made front page!! I should debate with my friend more often!

No I wouldnt expect it, in fact when my grandfather died, that actually happened , although there wasnt that much money, my dad recieved $5,000, he on his own decided to give myself and my sister $1000 each from it.

Nope. If it wasn't willed directly to me then it's not mine and I wouldn't expect anything

No. I would think that when they pass they would leave it to whom they wish which would probably be the children.

This is my argument. She (a friend of mine) says since money is left to the grandmothers kids (aka her father) and their families some of it should be given to the grandchildren.


Quoting IWantOneMorePlz:

No, grandma left that money to dad.  Dad can spend or divide that money as he wants.

No I wouldn't expect them to give me anything tho I know if it was a large amount my dad would give some to my brothers and I. My moms parents have already passed.

Not necessarily if he did it would be nice but ultimately it was left to him and is his money not mine.  Money is the route to all evil and all inheritances do is divide families.  I hope NEVER to ever have one and I will never leave one either.
