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!

Nope.  It will be mine when my parents pass away.  It is theirs for them to enjoy.  If they DO want to give me a little, that is their choice.  I don't expect it.

When my husband's grandmother died, she left everything divided up between her children.  When my FIL died, he left everything to my MIL.  When she died, she left each one of her grandchildren an education fund, and everything else divided up between her children, which is in trust.
At no time did anyone EXPECT anything. 

Quoting Anonymous:

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.

I wouldn't expect it. It would be nice if he shared but no hurt feelings if he didnt.

I would never expect an inheritance unless my name was specifically in the will.
