Well, if they NEVER came around, I don't see any reason to include them in an inheritance whatsoever! It's back to that old saying that PEOPLE COME INTO YOUR LIFE FOR A REASON, A SEASON, OR A LIFETIME, and it seems that they came into his life for a reason. They were given LIFE, and if they had the CHOICE, and were encouraged to be involved in his and your lives and chose not to, for whatever reason, then by all means, you both worked for it, give your life accomplishments and monies to whomever you wish! There is no need to feel guilty about any of that. Just be sure to create an iron clad will, that cannot be questioned! What any of us do with our monies is our own business!

My step girls got a lot from their father and his ex. wife . And they did not come to see him for 36 yrs. we were married. My husband went threw a lot of heart problems and they never came around. He also gave his ex the house and everything in it 36 yrs. ago. So I think they should not get anything.

We do have our will set up to equally devide our assets, so there will be no issues. I see no problems with people doing it their own way, as they have their reasons. But the OP didn't explain his situation and I do think it's a good idea to square these things away, beforehand and so that there is no questions.

Why not have a lawyer help you write a will that specifies exactly how you want your property distributed?

Our will states very clearly that our house go to our two children. Also my husbands will clearly states that if the business gets sold his daughter gets a smaller percentage than our children who work in the business. My step-daughter cut her father out of her life for whatever reason. My husband said that his daughter will inherit her moms house.

Armyretired, and how did you feel about that? Did you think it appropriate for your step-sisters to be cut out completely? I ask this because my husband and I both entered into our marriage with two children each, from previous marriages, we have bought two homes together over the 31 years we've been together, and I would never dream of cutting out my two step children whom I've helped to raise since they were 2 and 5. I'm just interested to know why she would have done that, and if you were in agreement with her decision? I understand that all families have their differences, but it's sad really, when perhaps your stepfather had intended his estate to be split up amongst all of the kids, but then it wasn't. Do you think he would have done the same if it were the other way around? No judgment here, just interested.

My mother and stepfather jointly owned a home with deed stating jointly, with rights of survivorship. When my stepfather died, my mother automatically became sole owner. She then proceeded to change the title of the deed to her name only. My mother also made a will excluding my stepsisters from inheriting anything from her estate. When she died, everything went to me and my two biological sisters. My step sisters received nothing.

Do you NOT Want them to have it? Why? Do you have kids of your own? I would think that a very well written will, would sprll out your desires to the distribution of your assets. What does your husband want?

Can't answer that without knowing:

1. If you have a will, individually, or jointly with your husband, and if it addresses the house and who will inherit; and

2. How the deed to the house is titled. Is it you and your husband, jointly, with rights of survivorship?

You write that it's "my house" but that both your names are on the deed. Could you clarify that?
