Here's the original post by Reddit user u/Top_Juggernaut_551:
OP's oldest brother is a drug addict, and his parents have invested a lot to help him.
OP was unable to get custody of her nieces because of religious reasons.
OP gave her parents two options they loathe and sent them a copy to inform them about her choice.
OP's parents complained about the options she gave them and threatened to challenge her will.
The family's reaction made OP doubt her decision, so she decided to consult with the Reddit community.
OP eventually modified the post to include an "Edit" with more context about the situation.
OP thinks she might be the a-hole for the following reason:
Here's how the Reddit community reacted to u/Top_Juggernaut_551's post:
"I think what you're doing is incredible in a time when no one could fault you for focusing on yourself. "
It's a bit extreme to base that decision on church affiliations.
The nieces can use the money for school or any post secondary education.
OP handled the situation how it should be.
OP could think of some failproof alternative options.
OP's parents only care about money and ignore her condition.
OP needs to ensure her nieces are cared for when they become adults.
The parents aren't even eligible to contest the will.
"After they are 25 they might regret not getting a secondary education."
OP is doing her best to help her nieces.
OP needs to tighten it up a bit more.
OP didn't want her husband to go through that.
Well, this was an interesting story. OP had every right to tighten the options on her parents after their history.
Her choice was wise, and her plan is pretty much failproof. If you enjoyed reading this, make sure to check out similar content on our platform.
