A third of parents are reluctant to leave money to married children in case of divorce

Parents fear for the permanence of children’s marriages

A third of parents are reluctant to leave money to their married children when they die in case they get divorced, according to a report conducted by Opinium Research for investment management firm, Rensburg Sheppards.

Some 35% of parents said they were unwilling to leave an inheritance as their child's spouse could end up with some of the assets in the event of a breakdown of the relationship. One in four parents admitted that they were not confident their children's marriages would last.
