Summary
The purpose of this study was to examine attitudes about who should be included in a will following divorce and remarriage. Multiple-paragraph vignettes describing different situations involving family members that should be included in the will of an elderly farmer were responded to by 268 men and 439 women from a Midwest state. Variables manipulated in the paragraphs included family closeness, contact after divorce, and remarriage of the middle generation's adults. Obligations regarding inheritance were not seen as contextual. Approximately two-thirds of the respondents thought there was an obligation to leave an inheritance to family members, most specifically the only son, regardless of the 24 different variations of the vignettes. Closeness and contact with the elderly farmer did appear to influence the selection of the daughter-in-law and the grandchildren to be included in the will. The new spouse and stepchild from the remarriage were selected to be included in the will less than 5% of the time. Non-family members and institutions were rarely selected as an alternative to family members. The main finding was that inheritance was seen as a resource that should be distributed directly through biological connections
