I am definitely up there in the years. My children are afraid that I will do something silly like marry my (younger) girlfriend and they'll lose their interest in the house. Honestly, I do not think I will ever remarry but don't mind doing the transfer now if it makes them feel better. I have otherwise provided for my girlfriend financially in my will. Do I have to pay taxes on this gift? Is there any reason why I should wait and let them inherit after I die (my will says they each share equally anyway).
