Since she received the money, he expects her to pay for nearly everything during the past couple of weeks.
They Went Out for New Year’s Eve
For New Year’s Eve, OP and her husband met up with his family at a restaurant to celebrate.
She Was Surprised to Hear Something

Her Mother-in-Law Made a Joke
Her mother-in-law joked about her paying for dinner out of her ‘inheritance pocket.’
OP Became Angry

They Shouted for Her
OP says the family shouted after her and her husband tried to get her to come back but she drove home.

He Says He Was Humiliated
Her husband said that his family thought she was gracious to pay for everybody’s dinner but they were wrong. He said OP humiliated him and his family and he said she was getting back at him for not being able to help her mom when she was sick. OP says that it’s untrue.
Did She Cause the Fight?
Her husband is angry and says she now caused a rift between she and his family when it would have hurt her to pay for the celebratory dinner.
The Readers Respond and They Support OP
Many readers said that it’s sad that he and his family are focusing on her inheritance and not her grief from losing her mother.
“So, let me get this straight. Your mother died after an illness, and the thing your in-laws take from this is ‘great, now she can pay for everything.”
Another reader suggested she turn the tables on him and ask how he would feel:
“Ask him where he wants to celebrate when his mom dies. These idiots rarely actually think it through with empathy for others, and when it happens to them, they are all surprised that it hurts like hell to lose someone.”
Should She See a Lawyer?
“A divorce attorney may be a wise investment since hubby showed his true colors. Instead of suggesting they spend the money on buying a house or rental property or put away for retirement, he wants her to blow the money away ever since she got it.”
