Mom Is Getting Married Again-Will I Lose My Inheritance?

A Minnesota Family Is Thinking About Mom

Today I'd like to tell you a story about a Minnesota family that is concerned about their mother. Three adult children, whom I'll call Judy, Jerry, and Jackie all live in the south metro area of the Twin Cities. Their Dad died a few years ago and their Mom has struggled with the loneliness from his passing. Over the past two years, Mom has been seeing a nice fellow at the senior citizens center where she lives. Recently Mom shocked her children when she announced that she and the new fellow, Hubert, plan to marry.

This is especially true in an era where some people are living much longer lives.
