Abstract

The testator executed his will providing that a termination of the marriage relation would make the provisions for his wife null and void. Subsequently, they separated, and, in anticipation of a divorce they agreed upon and carried into effect a property settlement providing that the wife should receive certain real estate, stock, and money in consideration of her surrender of all her rights of dower, alimony, and claims of support. A short time thereafter the wife sued for a divorce, but the action was discontinued when, in accordance with the testator's wishes, she went to live with him until his death three months later. On this application by his wife for the probate of the will, the son and heir claimed that the will had been revoked by a change in circumstances. Held, no revocation. In re Blanchard's Estate, 267 Mich. 189, 255 N. W. 190 (1934).
