Most people accept that they cannot take it with them. But having made your money, the law will ensure that your Will is carried out provided that you lived like a monk, avoided relationships (sexual or otherwise), had no children (even in a moment of weakness) and refused to give any money away to anyone.

Howe said “There are very few grave legal questions in a poor man’s estate”.  But add even a little money and any family can become the stage for some stellar and demanding performances from its members.  Often the indolent, gin swilling, shopperholic daughter-in-law who must be kept away from the wonderful son’s inheritance can become in time the saintly mother who sacrifices all for her own children and deserves every penny.  The death of her husband may launch her into a new marriage and the role of hated money grabbing step mother, only for her new husband to die and for her to inherit everything leaving his children without an inheritance.  But, her loneliness throws her into the arms of a chancer and she becomes the fear driven widow who is about to be taken for a ride by a man who through some quirk of law could leave her money to his own children. Meanwhile, the men of the family not only have to play opposite a multiplicity of female roles they can equally progress fro
