Money can either ruin your life or make it much better. Many people don’t know how to manage their new lives after receiving a large sum of money, either in the lottery or as an inheritance. The people in your life will usually have a lot of expectations after discovering that you are suddenly richer than before. Money always ends up ruining relationships and uncovering the ugly truth. That’s one of the reasons why many people would rather not advertise the fact that they came into some money. Once people find out about it, you could potentially become the first person they resort to when they run out of money.

It’s repulsive that she was expected to pay the husband’s family’s expenses.
It is best to keep the inheritance as a distinct asset without anybody having a say in it.
People are suggesting OP to consult a lawyer for this matter.
This is a very insightful comment which makes us understand the situation. OP’s in-laws are really shameful people.
OP should take the appropriate steps to safeguard her funds.
You don’t just expect someone to do something without telling them in advance.
Due to their apparent obsession with her inheritance, the OP should exercise caution around her in-laws and husband. They have no right to demand that she spend her money on them as it is her money. It was truly wrongful of the in-laws to even make a fuss about OP’s leaving the restaurant.
