His Sister Stole Most of His and His Brother’s Inheritance, But He Claimed It Was His Brother’s Refusal to Let it Go That Was Tearing the Family Apart

A man recently asked for some advice because he felt bad for throwing his brother out of his house after he wouldn’t drop a particular subject that upset him. Here’s what happened.

About six years ago, the man’s mother died, leaving him and his brother and sister to deal with the estate. His sister was the executor of their mother’s will.

His sister abused her role, using it to steal money and jewelry, using her position to do so. The man said, “My brother and I ended up with only $500 each, and my sister took home around $100,000.”

As a result of her theft, the man’s sister and his brother fell out and were irreconcilable.

During the heated arguments, the brother told anyone who would listen that the sister had abused him his entire life, although there was no evidence of that, and she denied it.

The man said, “I stayed out of it because I didn’t want any bad blood between me and my sister.”

Now that their mother was gone, the man didn’t want to lose another family member. And besides, his sister was a useful babysitter who his kids adored; he needed her to stick around.

Years passed, but the man’s brother just couldn’t let the betrayal go, and he instructed his lawyer to keep working on getting the money back.

Unfortunately, his sister had lost some important paperwork, and that was making her stressed. She would complain to the man about it for hours.

Within minutes, however, his brother started complaining about their sister and the money situation. He accused her of forging papers to make herself executor.

The man was so tired of the subject that he told his brother to drop it; he just didn’t want to know.

The man said, “He became agitated and told me that I should care because she stole from me and my kids too. He said I was enabling my sister like the rest of the family and I should know better.”

He told him to leave

Was he wrong?

Was the man wrong not to listen to his brother and to throw him out, or was he just taking care of his own mental health by asking him to stop talking?

One person said, “Let’s be real. This has nothing to do with making peace and everything to do with his sister being a babysitter.”

Another person said, “It’s very clear that you are overly partial to your sister, or possibly the two of you banded together to rip your brother off.”
