Explanation:
The (unofficial) English version of the French civil code on the Légifrance website has this translation of article 757:

Article 757
If a spouse dies leaving children or descendants, the surviving spouse receives, at his choice, either the
usufruct of the whole of the existing assets or the ownership of one quarter of the assets when all the
children are the issue of both spouses and the ownership of the quarter in the presence of one or more
children who are not issue of both spouses.
