Honestly, we started talking about this several months ago. Because we do not have children, we wanted to have clear directives for settling our estate in the event something happened to both of us. Yes, it's a bummer talking about something like that happening, but we live in a world where the news is full of tragedies, senseless killings, disasters, terrorist attacks, and accidents. Having a will makes it so much easier for those left behind to take care of things. Otherwise, it takes much longer and lots more paperwork to get everything completed! (I know - I've settled several estates where there was not a will & it's not fun.)
I have to admit that I'm extremely excited to have this least FUN item checked off my 50 Things To Do Before I'm 50 list! Do you have a will? How often do you review/update it?
