I am widowed and far too elderly tocontemplate further travel, Having traveled about a quarter million miles prior to retirement. !
Of my own volition, being of sound mind (Ihope !) I have been supporting a Mexican lady who suffers from chronic illness (lupus)- and her 2 children. She is unmarried; and I''d like to give her the opportunity of having a legal marriage under the circumstances outlined, with a view to possibly leaving my property to her in a (changed) will in due course. I am under no coercion whatsoever. This would add to my satisfaction in knowing,as a widower with no dependents, that I shall have done everything possible, unconditionally, to help this lady and her dependent ( 2) children. I would expect no more than an 'in principle' response. Our relationship - always online - has been mutually very beneficial.
What I had specifically in mind was the issue of a valid Mexican Civil marriage certificate to the lady referred to and an equally valid Civil Marriage Certificate arranged for me in the U.K.via my Solicitor who is my Executor..N.B. No travel nor stay in respective countries contemplated !
Because she is such an admirable person that I want her to have an official document valid in her country...A combination of age and ill-health prevents any circumvention of the law as I perceive it: and however silly it might appear to others, I would regard it as a kind of gift and a recognition of her fine qualities as a mother raising two children alone despite her health problems - or, to put it plainly, we love each other, and not in any superficial way !
Thank you,Ms Clare !
