Re: I made my will
Good for you Ffosse, it's always wise to sort things out.
We wrote out our wills years ago and nothing has really changed. The boys know where our wills are keptin the event.
IMPORTANT. If you DO NOT make a will, and your partner is younger than you, this is what could happen...
Example - If He Who Must Obey and I were involved in an accident and we both perished, even if I lasted a few more hours, days, weeks than him, because we both died in the same accident and I am four years older, as the eldest partner, I will have deemed to have died first. Then HWMO, so, as we would assume each to receive all from each other, I would have left all to HWMO, he would have no will, but he would rightly inherit all. However, because he also died, it then ALL goes to his side of the family. i.e. his brother and sisters. Our own children would receive absolutely nothing!!
I believe this still stands.
Crazy but that is the way it is. so it is vital that everyone should make out a will to prevent such a thing happening.
