    There are some principals that are worth more than any amount of money and this is one of them. Better to just walk away from the money in this case.

    Easy.

    Marry a woman. Divorce her later and split the money. At least he'll get half of it.

    Three grandchildren sharing a $180k trust? It could cost more than the kid's $60k share to contest grandpa's will or half that to pay for a wedding. Hardly seems worth the bother. The cost of pissing on grandpa's grave? Priceless.

    These social conservatives are always happy to pressure gay people into sham marriages with straight people... without a second thought about the well-being of the woman who will spend her life in a loveless marriage, wondering what she did wrong why her husband doesn't love her anymore.
    This is basically what the entire "ex-gay" movement is about... forcing gay people into living a lie that will also ruin someone else's life.

    Actually it's not that much money. And isn't the son a judge? Neither he nor the grandkids need the money.

    It's only $180K.

    If the grandson is smart, he can save more than that in his lifetime and tell his grandfather to "rest in pieces" and piss on his grave.

    I don't see why anyone should feel entitled to a relative's money.

    You're right, of course. As theantijock said above, with 3 grand children it works out to only $60,000 each. Not even enough for a house or 4 years of college. Any court fight would significantly cut into that even more and you can't really expect any woman to go through with a marriage without getting something out of it.

    It isn't even so much a feeling of entitled to get as much as it is a feeling of having been left out if you don't get.

    I had an uncle I didn't like for plenty of good reasons. It turned out upon his death that my cousins learned that not only didn't he leave them anything, but after his life of being a braggart about his success and teasing his kids with money and telling, especially the eldest, that she would be taken care of, we all witnessed this, he put in his will that should he and his 2nd wife die simultaneously, that the estate would go not to his kids but to her nieces.

    I was fucking furious for my cousins when I learned of this. What a fucking horrible way to treat your own children. Even though he could be quite the douche in life, if you're his kid (not me, I wouldn't even attend the asshole's funeral), you'd want to remember him with love. But he fucked ya on the way out. He left his kids with no say, with no way of resolving their conflicted feelings of loving someone who screw'd'm. So that's what they were entitled to instead? Yikes.

    There's places in this country today where that will buy you 5 houses. I know a guy who's currently going after a shortsale in Ohio for $15k for a 3/1.

    So, essentially, grandpa's preventing this poor child from becoming a slumlord.

    In more seriousness, what's truly horrid about this affair is not only that he's spitting on his own child and trying to rule his life from the grave, but in giving money to the other grandchildren freely yet stipulating impossible conditions for the grandchild with the gay father, grandpa's basically trying to influence how his grandchild might feel about his own father. What a very shitty thing to do.

    And you associate all social conservatives with the ex-gay movement? Always happy to pressure gay people into sham marriages?

    This is just wrong. I've thought of several nasty responses, but there's no point. For the record, plenty of straight social conservatives are fine with gay people, love their gay relatives, or simply don't care.

    Obviously.


    This is still evil.

    The money is not important in the end, but I find it incredibly sad because it shows what the grandchild was worth to the deceased. Pathetic.

    Add a prenuptial agreement in the mix, and that could work.

    As has been said above a couple times now, the grandson would get $60,000 (one-third of $180,000 to be divided among three grandchildren). Marrying someone over that amount seems like a lot of trouble. You can't really expect a woman to get nothing out of agreeing to do this.
