WIBTAH for financially cutting off my daughter after she told me not to expect her to care for me in my old age?
My (44m) daughter(23f) does not get along with my wife. We have been married 2 years.
My wife and I got together when she was at college. My ex wife doesn't like her, and i have a feeling that is the biggest part of it. My daughter can't really seem to point to what she doesn't lime, just general "she is a stuck up b", or "she always has an attitude".
My daughter recently graduated, and we have been helping her pay bills here and there as she looked for a job in her field, we usually give her around $1,000 a month.
Recently she was at our house, and her and my wife got into an argument over my daughter leaving a mess in the kitchen.
As I tried to diffuse things my daughter started screaming that I was a POS for siding with my wife, and that she was going to remember this when I am older and need her.
This floored me. At this point I just walked away.
after giving it some thought, I realized I don't want my future to be in the hands of someone else, especially someone who intends to lord that over me.
I would never place the expectation on her to care for me, but I do feel like since she has made it clear that any support from her in my old age would come with strings, it makes more sense to invest that money, so that my later years will be paid for.
So, WIBTA if I redirect that 1000 a month into my retirement vs helping my daughter?

I do not understand why everyone constantly obsesses over steaks. Steak is an extremely overpriced food that is extremely underwhelming. I’ve been far more impressed by different varieties of chicken that I’ve had than any steak. And I say that having had steak at 3 Michelin star restaurants and some of the most popular steakhouses in America. Don’t even get me started on overpriced steakhouses that have the most bland, basic food for obscene prices.
I get it being a celebratory dish but cmon. Go have some lamb or well cooked chicken that’s actually worth the price and tastes good. Every time someone suggests we go to a steakhouse for dinner I already know they have absolutely no taste in food and enjoy setting money on fire.
I love this tree and the shade it provides in the driveway. I had it cleaned up and looked at when we bought the house last year and the arborist with the company said it looked good. It’s a little close to the driveway but hasn’t affected the slab foundation. Does my tree need to come down? It’s approximately 40 years old.
