Do you feel like you are entitled to something when your parents die?
My aunt passed away this week, and within hours of her unexpected passing there was squabbling about who gets what. Not going to lie, it chaps my hide.
My wife and I have the same view. We are always telling her parents (mine have passed) to enjoy their retirement, see the world and do/buy whatever they want. They respond that they don't want to waste our inheritance, which we feel is absolutely nuts because it is THEIR money.
I do want to mention that they have opened savings accounts for their grandchildren and great-granddaughter, and I am okay with that. My wife and I have done the same for our granddaughter. Aside from that, I believe they (or anyone) should enjoy the fruits of their labor and not worry about providing for others when they have passed.
