It's both sons & daughters. The reason is two-fold: greed & control

i sure would hate to stand before God when he asked me why I mistreated and stole from my mama and daddy while they were alive and then didn't honor their last wishes when they died. God sees all!! Even worse what if our parents get to see what we did to their memory and how we embarrassed the family name when we stand before God. God says we will all be judged. No one gets out of that. Satan uses greed to turn people away from God and then ruin that person forever by making them rationalize their evil deeds. You can't demand respect, you have to earn it. Satan loves to tesr families apart.
i pray for them

Me and my brother can't get to a penney of our inheritance because of the evil greed of our two brothers. I pray for them every day.

It's normally the step children causing the problems and non deserving step mother

I've seen that happen a lot with divorces. The step mother gets everything while the dad leaves his own kids nothing.

The outlaws cause a lot of problems but at the end of the day we can't blame anyone for our actions.

It is greed. It happens all the time too. Very sad. It isn't the time or the place either. It is disgusting.

Greed,laziness,looking for free handouts and an easier way of life,or just ride it out till the money's all gone and back to square one. Another wasted life of mooching

Most time they suffer one way or another. My mother always told me when you got something dishonest you will lose it one way or another, usually with sickness. What is life without your health that something money can't buy.

My brother and I are really close . My house is paid for. When we loose our parents, he gets their house . I hate to see him struggle working 3 jobs to get by. My love for him will always be what's best for him.

If someone is willing to squander their relationship wtih their family over material things they are stupid. Greed over family... not pretty. See this a lot at work also.. pretty pathetic. I could not do this to my brother or sister... I'm like lovemyjob.. when my MOm passes, I want anything she has to go to my brother and sister.. they need it financially.. I don't.

yOUR right. Greed and control are often more important to some than respect and the love of the family. Can't take it with you is my motto. I wouldn't take anything for the love of my sisters and brothers. I love their children like my own. Our parents left us NOTHING and that is fine by us. It was theirs anyway and we are glad they got to travel and see the world on their life savings. We love and miss you Mother and Father. YOu left us the most important gift our love for each other. My children will get the same as far as I am concerned. If our children only love us for what we'll leave them, then shame on them. But they are not being taught that so they will not expect that. We just love each other and that gives our family strength in hard times.
