What better way to start family arguments than the division and distribution of inheritance? There is nothing unusual about feuding relatives when it comes to splitting up the assets of wealthy kin. Just so you know, not every single inheritance is considered problematic. There are times when something that gets passed down serves as the glue that holds the family together. While it is almost expected for a kid to look like their parent, it is a little more special when a child looks like their grandparent.
