1). If my husband has alot of savings bonds from his childhood that was given to him from his father. Am I entitled to them?
2). Also his mother is still alive but very old with some illnesses. If she dies am I entitled to any of his inheritance?
Lawyers will come along shortly, but my guess is 1) yes, that is part of your combined estate unless you signed a pre-nup. 2) no, that is not his money in any way shape or form, it belongs to your soon to be ex-MIL. If she chooses to give it to him on her death, that is between the two of them at that point. You have no claim on her estate.
Here in Canada, from what I understand, it'd a big NO to both - 1) because they were his before and he hasn't used them, and 2) because what she leaves him is his INHERITANCE.

It's not for me I am very happily married. I would never expect anything from a marriage that I didn't come in with, except for what we built together in the marriage. I am asking for someone else who does not want to go on line and ask. I told the person that they don't deserve the bonds or the inheritance.

I hope not because I don't think it's right.

Bet she can find a lawyer who will argue that . . .
