Not exactly, but Texas community property laws complicate things. First, if you own a home, you cannot completely disinherit your spouse because your spouse will have the right to live in the home after your death – even if the home is in your name. For everything else, your spouse has a right to half of any of your community property. Careful estate planning, however, can allow you to do things differently.
