Medical School Cash Gifts

by John OBrien
(Sedona, Arizona)

My daughter recently married. She and her husband (my new son-in-law) will both graduate from medical school at the same time. I had planned to give my daughter a large cash gift. Do I now have to give my new son-in-law the same amount of a cash gift I am giving my daughter or can I still give my daughter a larger amount?

Graduation Gift

It is your gift to give, so make your own decision about the amounts. There is no rule that says gifts to a married couple have to be equal. Frankly, your known your daughter longer anyway!
​Congratulations on this great graduation day!
