Woman’s Humorous Response to Husband Expecting Inheritance from Her Mother

A grieving woman sparked outrage on Reddit after she cut her husband out of her mom’s inheritance. Payback is rough, even among spouses. Here is the full story.

They’re a Young Family

OP is a 29-year-old stay-at-home mom with a 31-year-old husband and 4-year-old son.

When they got married, OP had a job, but her husband wanted her to stay home when they started having kids.

Because OP’s husband made a lot more money than she did, she agreed to the arrangement.

Everything was fine until OP’s mother got really sick a couple of years ago.

She’d had diabetes for a while, and things took a quick turn for the worse.

While OP’s mom was able to pay for her own hospitalizations, she didn’t have enough money to cover all of the smaller doctor’s appointments and treatments that followed.

So OP and her 25-year-old brother agreed to split those costs between them.

But when OP asked her husband to pay for half her mom’s medical bills, he flatly refused.

In fact, OP’s husband wouldn’t pay anything at all, saying it wasn’t his responsibility.

That left her brother to pay the entire bill.

After a long and hard struggle, OP’s mother passed away.

She didn’t have much money, but that didn’t mean she died poor.

They Were Very Valuable

Instead, OP’s mom owned four properties. Though they were in bad shape and needed a lot of work, they were still very valuable in the exploding real estate market.

When she died, OP’s mother left those properties to her kids, with two going to each of them.

As soon as he heard about the inheritance, OP’s husband knew exactly what she should do.

He wanted her to sell.

And with the money OP was going to get from those properties, her husband planned to make some repairs and updates to their house.

Besides those improvements, OP’s husband thought they might take a nice vacation.

He was ready to live high on the hog, courtesy of his dead mother-in-law.

OP could hardly believe her ears when her husband revealed his plans. She laughed in his face.

He Had No Say

And then OP told her husband that he had no say in what happened with her inheritance since he had refused to help her mom when she was alive.

OP’s husband told her she was being a horrible person, then stomped off to work, pouting all the way out the door.

She Was Being Selfish

Later that day, OP’s sister-in-law called her up to tell her how selfish and irrational she was being.

The irate woman told OP she owed her husband because she had been living off his money ever since their son was born.

She Could Pay Him Back

Her mom’s inheritance was OP’s big chance to pay him back.

It Made Her Think

Even though OP was offended by her sister-in-law’s comments at first, she put some thought into it.

Now, OP thinks  there may be some logic to her husband’s argument and wonders if she should reconsider.

Redditors have no doubt that OP’s first instinct was right and think she should tell her husband and his sister to stick it.

They also advise her to take special care with the money from the inheritance to make sure her husband can’t get his hands on it.
