To Share or Not to Share: The Inheritance Dilemma 🤷‍♀️💸

Our protagonist and her brother are left with a difficult decision after their aunt demands they share their $200K trust funds with their cousin, who missed out on the inheritance. Grandma chimes in, saying it's their choice to make. The cousin, however, is set to inherit a fortune from his other grandparents. With the internet weighing in on the situation, the siblings ultimately decide to keep the money as their great-grandparents intended. But will the family drama end there? 🍿

Grandma's wisdom prevails. NTA. Aunt's guilt-trip is uncalled for. 👍
