    Default after + would

    Let's say we're speaking about something using conditional.
    For example: He would inherit the money. And after he would have inherited/inherits/would inherit the money, he would marry her.

    Which tenses should I use in the sentence? It seems totally confusing to me...

    After he had inherited/inherited, he would marry her.

    Of the two, I think I would use the past perfect to suggest completion of the inheritance before the marriage.
