Re: My husband's " WILL", $ left for me to live on....

Welcome to the forum. I think marital counseling is in order. This is utterly ridiculous that he is worth $7 Million and only plans to leave his spouse $300K, not to mention the fact that you've been married 11 years and only now have seen his will. Not to mention that someone so wealthy wouldn't i...
