  •  Really??? It was her money!!!!!!!! (5+ / 0-)

    Whether she ended up with millions, or $1.49, it was her money and to go after it because they saw a loophole in marriage / inheritance law is disgusting.  

    She ended up with money that was her money to begin with.  The diarist ended up with money by taking it from her.  He should donate it back to Caroline.

    Do you want some stranger coming into your relationship and donating some of your money to a charity?

    How can you not feel bad for Caroline?  Complete strangers come into her relationship and take.  Really?  Where else would we tolerate such behavior?  Certainly not in the straight & married world...

    It was and still is not any of his business how the money was to be gifted.  He is not an innocent bystander... he is an interloper and profiting from someone he doesn't even know.  

    Disgusting.

    •  I strongly support marriage equality. (0+ / 0-)

      If Susan could have legally married, then divorced Betty, then legally married Caroline, there would have been no issue. But, if she lived with them as lovers without marrying, as many heterosexual couples do, the same kind of legal mess with inheritance can and will happen. Since there was a will, Caroline probably could have taken it to court and won, but she chose not to. Maybe she was happy enough with the $1 million or so.
