Some current thoughts - as of 7-13
I. Probably after this counseling session was scheduled,
on 7 July, Marie says she has talked to a divorce attorney and
they discussed property settlements and community property.
Seems like when things have gone so far, for her to do this,
it is a real tough road to go, to come back to a
loving caring relationship.
M demands that nothing less than full equal division of
property - make everything owned, into community property
will do. Now. Seems like if I do that, then later
I have to talk to a divorce attorney, he will tell me
my making things community property was crazy.
2. Even if I give her full shared property, and everything
in the will, she has maintained that I still should never
visit with my 3 oldest children. That that is being
disloyal to her since they do not want to meet her anymore.
(on 13 July, she somewhat backed off this part.)
3. In 1992 when Trust created, I had 3 children, and
owned 4 houses in Seattle and Bothell. The Trust was
dedicated to help them. My oldest Eric was 14, so 4 more
years in the house, Tracy was 12, so 6. Now, they
need nothing, but would like my time.
4. By the current Trust, Marie will be left with 2 1/2
million dollars. But because (it was @ $550,000 now
perhaps 800,000) being left to EQUALLY 4 children,
this emotionally hurts her. She has at times urged I
give to a charity, & said she OK with that. Perhaps.
But absolutely livid at my oldest kids getting anything,
even if equal to her daughter.
