Gay Son Must Marry for Inheritance

Can a father require that his gay son get married in order for his grandchild to be eligible for inheritance?

The late Frank Mandelbaum stipulated in his will that none of his son Robert's children would receive any inheritance if Robert "not be married to the child’s mother within six months of the child’s birth," The New York Post reports.

After New York passed the Marriage Equality Act, Robert married Jonathan O'Donnell in August of 2011, shortly after the couple had a child, Cooper, via a surrogate mother.

And now Robert thinks 16-month-old Cooper deserves a share of the $180,000 trust reserved for Frank's three grandkids.
