Dad put a bequest in his will. Mum pointed out that she had no intention of predeceasing him and this would leave her struggling financially.

I would suggest that my father is probably one of the most reasonable men I know (except for whatever possessed him to inflict this cultish doctrine on his kids) and yet he cannot be reasoned with when it comes to this and cannot see the flaws in his own rational.
