ADVICE: HOW TO DISTRIBUTE AN INHERITANCE
So to put a spin on the thread I started entitled "Joint Finances", here's a question for the ladies who believe in the old saying "what's mine is yours and what's your is mine" concept. What would you do (or how would you feel) if your husband suddenly received a $15,000 inheritance and made the decision to put it into HIS savings account. And don't say "he wouldn't do that" -- just play along. HE DID IT. Would you feel slighted? Would you feel as though the money is "joint" money or that he should beallowed to allocate the funds towards whatever he sees fit since its coming from his deceased relative.
