The Moneyist: My fiancé is 14 years older and has three kids — will I have to share his estate with them if he dies?

Dear Moneyist,

I’m a 34-year-old woman living in West Palm Beach, Fla. I’m engaged to a divorced 48-year-old father of three. There is a 14-year difference between my fiancé and I. He has full-time custody of his three children from a previous marriage. We are planning on getting married soon and buying a home. What are the laws on inheritance if something happens to my fiancé and I am left alone with his three children?

Also see:My wife and I want to have a second child — is this a good time to buy a new house?

Will I be forced to sell the home that my future husband and I have worked for and split the earnings with his children? Will I be forced to split the money in our bank account and give it to his three children? Will you please explain the law to me? I know that if something were to happen to him and he had debt I would have to pay off his debts since we are legally bound through marriage.
