Dad's Dilemma: The Clash of Family, Finances, and Feelings

This 55-year-old dad, who's always been generous to his children, is now facing a storm of criticism. His daughter, who's recently suffered a miscarriage and a breakup, wants a bigger home. But he's refusing to finance it, not because he's short on funds, but because he believes it's unnecessary for a single person. He's been called every name in the book, but stands by his decision, saying he'll reconsider when she's ready to start a family again. But the question remains - is he being heartless or just practical? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...🤔
