    Thanks. There is much more to it.

    Basically, we want the kids 50/50 but she refuses as then she wouldn't be 'able to get as much money from us'- her words.

    As stated, I am happy to pay for their upbringing. My bio father paid nothing towards mine, and I refuse to let me stepkids go without. But 50/50 is fair. Especially as their mother earns more than their father.
    She just refuses to buy stuff for them- we actually had to buy new winter clothes for her house for them as she refused.

    It wasn't my intention to be a 'smart ****'.

    What I was responding to was the issue of a Father's responsibility to pay for his kids.

    I'm not aware of the backstory. There are so many of us sharing our stories on Bubhub.
    That would be fine if I hadn't specified "we"- we pay. He cannot afford it all so I have to pay towards them (at her house) too.

    Again, would be fine if she wasn't such a [_____] about it all.

    There's no judgement in my post, I'm just curious as to how it works. I assume it's a cultural thing. Wish people left me properties!!! I'm the youngest though so I would be snarky if my sister got them because she's older 😄

    I inherited a small amount when my mother passed away, and bought a house for $84 less $7K first homeowners. It's postage stamp sized on a massive block so a great investment, I paid it off while single and it has paid me a small income ever since. So yes - in the lucky camp, however I'd trade it for my mum back.

    I bought my first house using the first home owners grant, plus I got a loan for 103% of the value of my house. I didn't save up anything, plus I didn't even have a permanent job! I was only temporary at my job lol. That was well before the GFC, obviously

    We renovated and sold that, then rented and bought a block of land to build on. Then we sold that and rented until we found our house out in the country. Every time we've sold, we've increased our money.

    Iron clad wills, being the sole child of a former relationship, being the eldest grandchild (great grandchild too), etc.

    My other siblings get things too- but they are from another relationship so they get things from that.
