Until a divorce is final, a couple is married.
Does a woman who is anatomically female at birth cease to be a woman if she has a hysterectomy? If her husband dies, is her status as widow uncertain until she proves she has ovaries? Is her standing in court dependent upon the utility of her vagina? Ridiculous. The law should be disinterested in whatever fleshy machinery a woman has, whether she did or did not ever have it.

This is a bad decision and a bad sign for the wife.
I believe the wife has prior rights to a dead husb ands estate. I should not have reverted to the mother. Suppose the wife had died, would her parents have been able to claim the couple's estate or even half of it. Of course not! It is a bad sign because no matter how bad a decision it is, it will take money, she probably doesn't have to fight it. And the judge knows this! This decision was not based in law, but in prejudice.
