No they don't need help. My Sil's mom is wealthy but my DIL's mom has a job and she inherited some money or got life insurance when her husband died. Anyway, it is what it is...this is the way things turned out, I had some influence with guiding them as children and young adults. They chose prosperous careers. They could just as well have chosen a career that doesn't pay as well. They married people with the same careers. So that doubled the good income. Things could have gone differently...I could have been a lousy mom, they could have chosen a path of drugs and alcohol...lots of different scenarios but this is the way it is and everybody is happy. Both have good marriages and are good parents also. I don't see divorce in either child's future. In fact in my whole family there isn't anyone that's been divorced....just widowed. While we are mixed in politics and religion...we have one common thread....Family.
