Q  If our near and dear ones (father & mother in law who already have enough of regular monthly income) want our money too.. Should we give?? The base line is: I want to conserve my hard earned money for future needs and they want to spend (take) it today!! I want to lead a simple but good life!! They want to have lavish life style with luxories! I don’t want them to be unhappy and I don’t want myself to be unhappy too!


A  Use your intellect. Determine what is your obligation and duty versus your selfishness and unwillingness to give. If you think it is your duty to look after your elder family members you should give them something and not just use it only for yourself. You cannot dictate what lifestyle they should lead. You lead by example and live a simple life. Maybe they will see sense in what you are doing.
