Her Parents Refuse To Leave Her Their House in the Will But Demand She Becomes the Sole Guardian of Her Disabled Sister if They Pass Away

A woman recently surprised her family when she asked that her parents make her the sole heir of their estate if they wanted her to take full responsibility for the care of her disabled sister. Despite their shock, the woman had an explanation. Here’s what she had to say.

Her Parents’ Wishes

Throughout her life, the woman was told that if anything happened to her parents, she would become her sister’s guardian. Her sister, who was 33 years old, had disabilities and resided in a care home. While the government assisted with some expenses, her parents always ensured their daughter received the best possible care.

During a recent visit to her sister with her parents, they reminded the woman of their decision for her to be her sister’s sole guardian in the future. Although her parents were healthy, they had experienced health scares in the past.

Reflecting on her parent’s request, the woman wondered if she was the right person for the job. She felt her two older brothers, both of whom were married and established in their careers, were better suited for the responsibility.

In addition, the woman desired to travel and already had a job that allowed her to do so. “I want to go see the world. I am lucky enough that my job can be done from anywhere that I can access the internet,” she said.

Proposals for Consideration

The woman presented three proposals to her parents during dinner to address her concerns. First, all three siblings become joint guardians, sharing the responsibilities. Next, the entire estate is left for her sister in a trust to ensure her ongoing care. Finally, she would become her sister’s sole guardian, but only if the entire estate, excluding sentimental items, is left to her.

It Was a Fair Approach

The woman believed these options were fair, considering her parents’ limited wealth, with their estate primarily consisting of their house and insurance policies intended to cover her sister’s long-term care costs.

Her Parents Thought Differently

Her parents didn’t like the idea. “They said that I am trying to shirk responsibility for my sister and I am greedy for trying to get everything,” she said. The woman even suggested being excluded from the will entirely, with her brothers becoming her sister’s guardians, but her suggestion only further upset her parents.

Her father became angry, and her mother was in tears when she left the discussion. Her brothers also expressed their displeasure, believing she was being unkind to their parents and attempting to deprive them of their rightful inheritance.

They Declined Her Offer

She even offered to give her brothers the entire estate if they agreed to take full responsibility for their sister, but neither accepted. The family has since been left in turmoil.

One user said, “I love how your brothers are mad because you are calling out their sexist behavior. So, your parents want you to put your entire life on hold for your sister with no actual benefit? Totally unfair.”

“Start looking for a suitable home and agency to work with immediately. If you wait till your parents die, it will be very difficult to find a suitable home quickly, and you will be stuck.”
