The saying goes that honesty is the best policy — but what if being honest about your life causes you to lose out on $7 million?
A man is asking for advice about whether he should tell his niece to stay in the closet until her grandparents die. And it's not just to spare some elderly homophobes' feelings — it's because she might lose out on a big chunk of change if she comes out.
My (42M) niece (17F) recently confided in me that she is a lesbian. I supported her, let her know I'd be there, etc. Usual ally stuff.
However, she told me she was going to come out to the whole world this week. I let her know she should absolutely wait for her grandparents (my parents) to pass. My father is incredibly wealthy and has tens of millions of dollars in assets that he will be passing down once he is gone.
