Post retirement, would you accept financial help from married daughters?Yesterday, I was a passive listener along with a group of elderly men who were discussing about one member of the group, it was almost like a heated discussion.
After a couple of minutes, I realized that it was about money being sent regularly by a daughter to the retired father's account. Some of his friends were arguing about embarrassment, loss of face in front of the son-in-law, should never take for daughters, ask your son rather than take it from daughter, didn't your wife scold you? etc.
I was surprised about the small group of retired men who still had the concept that elderly parents should not depend on their daughters to lend a helping hand (financially). Whether it is son or daughter, what difference does it make?, it is out of love that they send some money not out of compulsion.
