Plenty of men I’m close to have died, but I’ve never inherited money before.
No one who writes to an advice column asking, “Should I hire a lawyer and have both my mother’s and my grandparents’ wills revised?” is living a blameless and sunshiny life.
Ester and I were talking about retirement yesterday, and she asked me if I had named any beneficiaries on my accounts.
Theoretically, it’s our parents who teach us about money, the technicalities of how to handle it, but also how we might feel about it as a concept and approach it through a moral lens. But what about when our parents die before they can teach us anything?
