Re: inherited some money
Entitled was the key word. I stand behind what I said. The person who got the inheritance should get to choose what they do with it. That's my personal opinion. When my husband got his, not once did I consider it mine. Yes, he shared it and that was his choice and I really appreciated it. Now, if it was the lottery, yes that should be shared. But, when it comes from someone's family, I feel differently.
Your opinion is the same as the laws. The inheritance is not common property in the marriage. It belongs to the person it is left.
I inherited a good some. Purchased my W a pool of her choice. She had wanted a pool for years. I had the opportunity to fulfill her one of many desires in life. In came the backhoe. And truth be told, the pool we enjoy together and has brought us many afternoons of bonding time. Well worth it.
