Pennsylvania parents may plan on leaving money to their adult children. However, many of them may not choose to talk to their children about their inheritance.

For Pennsylvania couples, the end of a marriage carries with it an array of emotional, practical and financial concerns. If children are involved or a partnership has been long-lasting, it can be exceptionally difficult to disentangle all of the accumulated history of a marriage.
