Rich old man leaves a fortune of nearly $4.2 million – His last wish that not all of his children can inherit

A rich man leaves a vast inheritance to his children but asks them to do something strange to get his share. His unusual condition shocks family members and sparks a feud between them.

The man’s 21-year-old niece wrote a post on Reddit to explain what happened after his death. She reveals family secrets and shares details about her grandparents’ life after marriage.

Her grandfather’s will contained an unusual condition that his children might not be equally divided in his inheritance. Willpower is not good with many family members.

OP (Original Poster) shared that her grandparents mysteriously ended their marriage and never told anyone what happened between them. She explain:

“He divorced my grandmother when my dad was 13 and barely spoke to him or his siblings for several years after that.”

Her aunt and uncle never made any effort to find out why their parents broke up. It was OP’s father who tried to reconnect with his father after he turned 18.

The man’s relationship with his children improved, but he did not disclose the reason for the divorce. His family found out about it after he passed away.

Turns out OP’s grandmother had an affair with someone else and got pregnant. Her husband didn’t know about it until he discovered a letter years later. OP explain:

“My grandfather didn’t know for the longest time until he caught my grandmother having an affair and found an old letter from her first lover that she kept.”

OP’s grandfather was furious and immediately filed for divorce. He made sure to keep his wife away from all his possessions by all means.

Her aunt also accused OP of not being her late father’s biological child.

Because he was not sure which children belonged to him, he wrote a will saying that his children would have to take a DNA test before they could claim their share of the estate.

His will also states that children who are not biologically like him will receive only $5,000 from his estate. Furthermore, if anyone refuses to take the test, they will receive the same amount as those who are not his, even if they are his biological children.

The OP revealed that all of her aunts and uncles tried to find a loophole in the will so they could get their hands on the money. They are not satisfied with the way their father divides his property among his children.

She confessed that she didn’t like it when her aunts and uncles refused to accept wills. She tried to talk to them, but they silenced her.

Her aunt also accused OP of not being her late father’s biological child, which angered her. She immediately went for a DNA test in hopes of proving her aunt wrong.

The results show that she is the biological child of her grandfather, which means that she will receive the largest part from his grandfather’s estate.

Her aunt, uncle and cousin were furious when they found out how much money she would get. On the other hand, the OP felt guilty for causing unrest in the family, so she posted her story on Reddit asking for advice.

A user named yay_darkness told OP she’s not at fault, but her aunt did the wrong thing. The user believes that the OP’s family members already know that they will not receive a portion of the property. Another user named Cyclonic2500 answered:

“It almost always happens when someone dies and it has to do with money. Family members show up and rush each other just to get a big piece of cake.”

She also shared a similar incident when her paternal grandmother passed away. Her father and his siblings discovered that the sole beneficiary of her life insurance was the Redditor’s father.

The Redditor believe Her father gets most of the money because he is the one who loves the child the most and never asks his mother for anything. On the other hand, his siblings never took care of their mother.

the_onlyfox believe Estate issues can be resolved by discussing the distribution of money before the person dies. She and her siblings sat with their parents to discuss how their parents’ assets should be divided after their death.

Most users believe the OP did nothing wrong. If you enjoyed reading this article, you might like this about a woman who asked her grandson a shocking question in her hospital bed.
