Lotto Winner's Dilemma: To Share or Not to Share?

After winning the lottery, a man finds himself in a moral quandary when his estranged stepdaughter, who had previously caused significant emotional and financial distress, asks for a share. This unexpected windfall has turned into a family feud, with relatives taking sides and emotions running high. While the man and his partner agree that the stepdaughter's request for a house deposit is unreasonable, other family members believe they should give her a small amount. The question now is, should he share his winnings with someone who caused him so much pain, or should he prioritize his own family's needs and desires? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...🤔💭
