Two retirees explain that they pass on much more to their biological grandchildren than to their adopted grandchildren. They shouldn't even get anything. There are several reasons for this, as reported by the British newspaper “Daily Mail.”

“Committed to respecting my late husband's wishes.”

Sophia, 67, from Cornwall, for example, plans to leave her £600,000 fortune exclusively to her biological grandchildren, although she also has five adopted grandchildren. She tells the Daily Mail: “I feel obliged to respect my late husband's wishes.”

The only one who knows this is Sophia's new partner, David, who respects her decision. If her grandchildren ever ask about her will, the pensioner will lie to them. “I won't be there anymore when they find out the truth,” the 67-year-old said.

But when it comes to gifts like birthdays or Christmas, treat all grandchildren equally. “I see the teenagers and the younger ones and I have known them since they were little, and sometimes my decision touches my heart. But you won't see a cent from me,” explains Sophia vehemently.

No inheritance due to the mother's behavior.

Another example cited by the Daily Mail is that of Sarah, 74, who excluded her grandson from her inheritance because she was unhappy with his behavior. She is expected to inherit 750,000 pounds (about 873,000 euros), but only to her biological grandson.

Your grandson will receive the same treatment when it comes to gifts, but he is not in the will. This is also due to his mother, the ex-wife of his daughter's husband. She “has not been kind to my daughter over the years and it hurt me to see that my daughter's stepson is on her mother's side,” the 74-year-old says.

Another retired couple made the news a while ago. John and Bev Martin have decided to sell their belongings before leaving them to their heirs. Now they use the profits to travel around the world.
