A Bequest to a Non-Muslim is Allowable

I`m married to a Christian woman and have two children. The rules of Sharia ban inheritance between a Muslim and a non-Muslim, in addition to the fact that a bequest to an heir isn`t allowable. Is it permissible for me to make a bequest to my wife in accordance with the general rules of bequest and for no more than one third of the estate or does following different faiths ban a bequest as well?
