In a post on Reddit a woman asked people to judge the way she manages her finances and her family. It sounds a bit harsh, but hear her out...
My husband has a daughter Suzie [F21] and I have a daughter Lynn [F19].
This year, Lynn started her first year of university and is studying in another part of the country. She's gotten a loan to cover tuition and I've sent Lynn some money to help her with living expenses, and she's planning on doing seasonal work over the holidays to get extra money.
Suzie has started her second year of university in another part of the country as well. My husband has been sending her money regularly throughout her studies, and he pays her tuition.
Recently, my husband came to me and said that Suzie is struggling financially after having car problems and asked if I could pitch in and send her some money to help with expenses. We have a prenup and keep our finances separate except for splitting rent and bills.
