In my husbands will he said our house ( in both our names )

Customer Question

In my husbands will he said our house ( in both our names ) goes to me if he dies first and then if something happens to me it goes to his sister. I want it to go to my son. It also states that if it is contested I would not get the house. Can this be? We have been married 25 years and lived in this house since 2004. Why couldn't I have the house given to my son should I be the surviving spouse?
