I am now 63 and widowed.
So far I have had 2 ladies who became friends of mine for a time and I told them at the start that there was no chance of marriage and all of my estate was going to my 2 daughters.
My daughters are both senior nurses and oddly both married to dentists even though their work is in no way connected to dentistry.
In both cases these woman wanted me to will my estate to their children after about 6 months. It was slightly upsetting the first time almost like being bereaved again.
Would it have been better if these ladies had not carried on with the friendship when I told them at the start there was no chance of their family benefiting from my estate?.
