Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Could you explain a little more about what you need to know
Thank you for your answer, Clare.
My question was:
What are the widower's potential responsibilities regarding the two children after marriage (if any)?
It may be entirely by mutual agreement whether the husband makes any contribution towards the children (i.e. current ongoing school fees) at all?
It is a matter between the couple what financial arrangements they make between them.
If the Widower choses not to treat the chidlren as his responsibility then he is free to do so
Please ask if there is some specific details that you are seeking
Thank you for the clarification.
If this couple subsequently divorce, do either party have any financial responsibility to each other?
That is a separate issue and yes there will be a financial settlement as between the parties depending on their financial circumstances
