Should You Accept Family Money?
MARCH 23, 2017
When I was a young adult, out of college and into my first years of marriage, I cringed at the thought of getting money from my parents. I felt it would give them control over me in some fashion and fiercely wanted my independence. I wanted to prove myself. I thought there would be ‘strings’ attached to the use of the money. Daughters and sons of very wealthy families sometimes want to disown the family wealth in order to prove themselves.
