Girlfriend demands share of inheritance, but is it fair? 💰

When it comes to money, it's a touchy subject for many couples. In this case, a man received a $50,000 inheritance from his aunt and used it to pay off his student loans and put towards retirement. His girlfriend found out about it and demanded a share, claiming that he should have talked to her about it first and that it could have helped her with her debt. However, they had only been dating for a few months when he received the money. Is it fair for her to expect a share? Or was he right to use it for his own financial goals? The situation has caused a rift between them and he's left wondering if he did something wrong. Let's see what the internet has to say in the comments and reactions.
