Your opinion is the same as the laws. The inheritance is not common property in the marriage. It belongs to the person it is left.

I inherited a good some. Purchased my W a pool of her choice. She had wanted a pool for years. I had the opportunity to fulfill her one of many desires in life. In came the backhoe. And truth be told, the pool we enjoy together and has brought us many afternoons of bonding time. Well worth it.
