His Brother Took His Half of Their Inheritance and Blew It All, but When He Lost His Job, He Returned to Demand the Other Half

A man recently wrote to an online forum to ask for advice after his older brother got in touch after years of almost no contact and demanded the man give up his half of their inheritance. Here’s his story.

The man wrote, “I’m 19. My brother, who’s 32, and I became orphans 10 years ago due to an accident our parents were in.”

“My parents had always been a bit paranoid when it came to their mortality, so they had a set plan in case they passed,” he added. “They left a significant amount of money for each of us, and our childhood home was meant to be mine.”

The will

His parent’s will was clear. It granted both men access to their share of the money when they were 18. His brother was 22 at the time, while the man was only nine.

Because his brother was of age, he took his money. Then, he cut all contact with his then-nine-year-old brother.

After his parents died, the man lived with his grandparents. When he turned 18, he got his share of the money, moved into the family house, and started university.

His grandparents didn’t want him to spend everything on his education. So, they took care of his living expenses during his first year at university.

After some chitchat, his brother got down to business. He said that because they were going through hard times, they wanted both the house and his inheritance so they could get back on their feet.

The man refused. He said that his brother had made zero effort with him since their parent’s accident.

Unfair situation

He told his brother that he’d earmarked his inheritance to pay for medical school and that he was living in the house already. However, his brother called him selfish for not looking out for him.

Was he in the right?

The man wasn’t sure if he made the right move, purely because he was concerned for his brother’s children. He wrote to an online forum to ask for a second opinion.

The internet responded

One poster said, “He squandered his money; he will squander yours too, and then you’ll both be broke. Be responsible with your money. At least one of you will be financially solvent.”

While another commenter replied, “HE cut contact with YOU and now expects your help. No way. I am begging you not to hand over a cent; he sounds like the type to be given a step and then suddenly take a mile. You owe him nothing.”
