Her Aunts Demand that She Share Her Inheritance from Her Mother but She Refuses as She Doesn’t Think This Is What Her Mom Would Want

A woman recently turned to the internet for guidance about her late mother’s legacy. Her mom’s sisters are asking her to divide the wealth, but she believes that’s not what her mom wanted. Here’s what she had to say.

The 25-year-old woman recently lost her mother to cancer. She and her 35-year-old brother were the mother’s only children. 

Her Mother Had Bought an Apartment

For seven years, the woman had been living in an apartment that her mother bought for her.

The mother wanted her daughter to inherit the apartment because she had worked to ensure her daughter had a place to live.

“My brother has no issue with this. He makes more than enough of his own money and actually owns an apartment in the same building,” the woman said.

However, their two aunts were not content with the arrangement.

Aunt A had struggled with financial issues for years, often relying on the mother for monetary support. Aunt B was financially stable but not in a position to help Aunt A.

Both aunts believed that since the niece could afford to rent a place, she should allow Aunt A to live in the apartment and rent her own, as they believed this would have been the mother’s wish.

“I said no, stating that my mother wanted me to have a place of my own. I am currently saving all the money I would have used on rent and intend to buy my own house when I have enough saved,” the woman explained.

The Aunts Then Asked for Money

Upon hearing her refusal, the aunts suggested that the niece and her brother should share some of the money from their mother’s life insurance policies with them.

The mother had left two policies to her children along with her house and car and had not bequeathed anything to anyone else. 

The aunts felt this was unjust and that they, particularly Aunt A, deserved some of the money.

The Brother Shut Them Out

“My brother blocked them all on platforms when they asked this of him and suggested I do the same, but I feel guilty about cutting off my family,” she said.

But the woman also strongly believed that if her mother had wanted the aunts to receive any money, she would have left them something in her will. 

She knew her mother well and was confident that she would have informed her if she wanted the inheritance to be shared.

The mother had only expressed her desire for her children to be able to support themselves after her death, and there was nothing else stated in the will.

So the Woman Asked For Advice

One user said, “There is absolutely no way you’re the AH in this situation. Sorry for your loss, but I’m afraid the only way forward is to cut your toxic aunties out of the picture, as your brother did.” 

Another stated, “Your aunts are adults who need to able to provide for themselves. Neither your mother nor you or your brother owe them ANYTHING at all.”
