I don't understand how money can tear a family apart when it should be family helping each other. Can anyone explain why a family would make money thicker than blood?

See, Today everyone needs money to fulfill self wants and desires of the members of the family. It is very natural that some can spend more than others. It is not always money that tear a family apart but in my opinion this starts from the jealousy for other family members. And then starts small fights for money and then a big issue over money. This way money becomes more important then family members for some people.

You are so right!!! In a situation I know of, the eldest sister wasn't even notified about her mother taking ill and then passing away until after she was buried. Then there were issues with the will being changed and the eldest sister being basically cut out of the will. I wonder how the brother and sister can live with the guilt if there is any guilt at all? Its amazing what money can cure!!!

My family I know we would rather be together then have money (but it helps to have money lol) because when we were little there was always times when we were short on money and such but always got through it ... I know some family's who could care less about each other and only live together because it's a place to stay at ...

Hey, Well my parents are always arguing about money almost every single day of my life, and I can't take it anymore. I think that you need money because you need to live off it, if it isn't their, then you can't live. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

Sorry for the delayed response. I do agree about needing money to survive, but I don't understand how a family member could turn their back on a sibling especially when their is millions involved.
