Husband refuses to pay for mother-in-law's medical bills

A woman is questioning if she's the a**hole for not sharing her inheritance with her husband after he refused to help pay for her mother's medical bills. The couple, who have a four-year-old son, agreed that the wife would be a stay-at-home mom while the husband works due to his high salary.

When the woman's mother fell ill, she asked her husband to split the medical bill with her brother, but he refused. After her mother passed away and left her and her brother a large inheritance, the husband suggested they use her share for house repairs and a vacation. The wife refused and now wonders if she's in the wrong.

Despite receiving backlash from her husband's sister, many commenters are supporting her decision to keep her inheritance. Read on for more opinions and reactions about the situation.
