Should your brother or sister pay you for gifts?

ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Today’s 98.3 TRY social dilemma concerns the relationship between siblings. Here is the mail :

Hi Jaime, my name is Evan and I’m a long time listener and wanted an opinion on something. So my older brother is rightfully rich, he started a business and works 70 hours a week. He is married with two older children and they live well. He told me he was going to retire in a few years at 58. So I’m doing well and I love my brother but he was never a great dresser. On the other hand, I have always liked to dress well and would save my money for nice clothes. When my brother was building his business and needed to borrow a suit or any piece of clothing, he would come to me and I would gladly give him anything I no longer wore or let him borrow whatever he wanted. It’s been going on for 20 years and he keeps borrowing my clothes or taking clothes I don’t wear anymore. He hasn’t bought a pair of sneakers in 25 years because he takes my old ones. All this time he never offered me any money and I’m starting to think he should. He earns triple what I earn but never even offers to give me money for his wardrobe. Would I be wrong to start asking him for money when he goes shopping in my closet?

Well, personally, I think Evan is petty. If he’s not wearing the clothes anymore, what’s the problem if his brother takes them no matter how much money he makes. I’m not a fan of money problems between siblings, but that’s just me.
