She Didn’t Tell Her Dad That He Is Not Getting The Million Dollar Inheritance, But He’s Expecting It To Pay For His Retirement And Debts
A Reddit user shares that her grandparents are no longer planning to give her a dad most of the inheritance.
Her Dad’s Been Banking On The Inheritance
The original poster (OP) said her grandparents are incredibly wealthy, and her father believes their estate’s worth is in the millions.
For this reason, OP’s dad has depended on her grandparent’s inheritance for some time. For instance, her dad hasn’t paid into retirement, and OP recently discovered that he is in a lot of debt.
Why Did The Father’s Inheritance Amount Change?
When OP was 16 years old, her mother passed away. Two years later, OP’s father married another woman.
OP said her grandparents (her dad’s parents) don’t like her. And, even after they had kids together, it still didn’t change how OP’s grandparents felt toward OP’s stepmother.

Grandparents Asked Her To Make A Promise
OP’s grandparents informed her that she would receive most of their estate. On the other hand, her dad will only receive $50,000, so he can’t dispute it.
OP knows her dad has been relying on a sizable inheritance and, at the same time, continues to spend money. However, her grandparents made her promise not to give out any money she received from the inheritance.
Should She Feel Guilty?
Reddit users say OP’s grandparents should be honest with OP’s dad. Instead, the grandparents are setting up OP for a lot of drama after they pass away.
Other Reddit users say OP’s father shouldn’t assume he will get anything. They also say it’s up to OP’s grandparents how they want to split up their inheritance. So instead, OP’s father should be more responsible with his money versus wasting his money.
Is OP wrong for not telling her dad that he will not receive a sizable inheritance? Are OP’s grandparents setting p OP for a lot of drama? Should OP’s dad be more responsible with his money and just be happy that he’s receiving anything?
