3) My mother has knee problems and needs support to walk. My father had 2 back to back surgeries last year. So both of them are physically incapable of taking care of anyone else. (During both the surgeries, being the daughter, I was responsible for the post-operative care.) After marriage, my brother had asked his wife to join in the family business but she flatly refused saying she has no interest. On one occasion, when my brother's MIL talked to one of my relatives about my grandparent's wealth and how all that will be inherited by her daughter (my SIL) one day, the relative openly confronted the mother-daughter duo in the presence of my entire family. That was when my grandparent was independent, mobile and self-sufficient. My SIL fought with my cousins, uncles and aunts and announced that only she and she herself will take care of the grandparent till the end and so she has the right to expect to inherit all the wealth. Eventually, my grandparent fell sick and needs assistance now. As soon as this situation arose, I am being continuously summoned to help. She has no face to ask any other relatives now. The number of vacations taken have increased drastically so also day breaks. Suddenly, she's required somewhere where she cannot refuse to go and so I have to take charge. I realize that for most of the time, I have taken the responsibility. And to add insult to the injury, she will give long lectures to whoever will listen on how an old person is such a huge responsibility. And I don't know what exactly has come over my brother that he has to go away from home so often and that too for long duration of time.
