It’s not the case as their entitlement is subject to an upper limit that married couples automatically get the entire estate of their deceased spouse or civil partner. Scots Law provides some help for single couples where their partner dies without making a will, however, they would not have an automatic right and any award is at the discretion of the courts within strict timescales.
