The Fertile Octogenarian

- To B for life, then to B's children for life, remainder to B's grandchildren.  B is 80 years old.

The grant to B's grandchildren is void, since B could (from a legal perspective) still have children.  Therefore the class of B's children is not closed, B is the measuring life, and the grant to B's grandchildren could possibly fail to vest until 21 years after B dies.

The Unborn Widow

- To B for life, then to B's widow for life, remainder to the children of B that survive the survivor of B and B's widow.

The grant to the children is void since "B's widow" could be a person yet unborn (and thus not a life in being).  Therefore, B is the measuring life, and the grant to the kids could possibly fail to vest 21 years after B's death.
