Shock As Millionaire Leaves Wife He is Married to For 42 Years With Nothing in His Will

A widow got the shock of her life when she was told that her millionaire husband of 42 years left her nothing in his will.

Joan Thompson, 79, had lived in Pembrokeshire, Wales, United Kingdom, with her husband Wynford Hodge for 42 years before his death in 2017.

He was worth $2.1m, but he opted to leave his wife and children nothing; instead, leaving the bulk of his wealth to “tenants who were kind to him in his final days”.

According to New York Post, Hodge did not want his wife, Joan, or her four children to inherit any of his fortunes. He dubbed his wife “financially comfortable” despite her having a modest $3,500 in the bank.

Thompson had been forced to live in a nursing home.

In a shocking move, Judge Jarman effectively re-wrote the wealthy businessman’s will by handing Thompson a $318,000 cottage on the estate.

The judge ruled Hodge had failed to match up to his responsibilities to his long-term partner.

He also ruled the landowner’s belief that his wife would need no financial support after his death as a “mistake.”

In addition to the cottage, widow Joan will receive almost $268,000 in cash to pay for the refurbishment and to provide her with reasonable financial support.

Hodge, who suffered from prostate cancer, made more than 10 wills before his death. In the hospital, before he died, Hodge told Joan “not to worry, as she would be well looked after,” Cardiff High Court heard.

But in his final will, he chose to leave it all to tenants Karla Evans and Agon Berisha, who had carried out unpaid errands and helped him with his shopping.
