My mom came to me yesterday upset. She said that after her parents sat her down and showed her their will (where she, as their only surviving child will get everything) her and her DH had a talk about their wills. They keep their day to day money (money they get from their paychecks and pay bills with) together but savings, retirement and property are separately owned. After seeing exactly what she stands to inherit (close to a million in their home and money), he asked about her will. She told him that it was pretty straight forward, that everything that is in just her name (house, savings accounts plus what she gets from her parents) will be divided up amongst her 4 children. Everything they have together will go to him. She said he sounded shocked that she didn't put his children in her will. She told him that she left a few pieces of jewelry to his DD and DD in law and a few things to his son, but yes, of course the bulk of what she has will go to her own children. She told me she isn't sure why he would expect otherwise, they keep those things separate so why should his kids get it. I certainly don't expect to be given anything from him in his will (he has is his house, which he currently rents out, and some saving). He told her that because of the extent of what she will have, he did expect his children to be included in the will. What do you think?
Also, added info, they didn't get married until 2 years ago, all of their children were grown and out of the house by then so it's not like were are a blended family.
