If she is an only child. What will you guys do when her parents get ill and die?
Pay for the funeral not have to share the inheritance? i dont get that one.
OK. Supposing the happy couple decide to live in the UK or elsewhere. In 10, 15 or 20 years, if she is an only child, her first parent may get ill and die. No probs. The other parent will take care of them.
When the second parent gets ill. Perhaps there will be a need for long-term care while they deteriorate and die? It's a possibility I never thought of when I got married, but we had to drop everything and move to Poland for a year and a half to look after my wife's dad before he died.
Of course there are other choices, like...
let him die. But could you live with yourself?
As far as funerals are concerned I'm surprised you don't know that there is a ZUS grant which covers the basic cost of a funeral (otherwise most Poles would be buried in their gardens).
As far as inheritance goes - yeah - fair payment for looking after them - if you're lucky enough to get any.
My main point was "you need to meet the family because you are marrying into the whole lot and there may be unforeseen consequences". That's the advice my son will be getting if he ever thinks of marrying a foreigner of any description.
