Depressing topic, I know.
Hubby and I need to write our wills. We postponed this long enough. Our financial planner recently warned us of what could happen to our family in the event that we both died without a will. It’s well past time that my husband and I do something about writing our will. I’ll start with Catholic Answers Family Life forum because you might let me procrastinate here under the guise of research.
When my parents passed away, my dad had all their financial papers and matters in perfect order. He’d organized all that years earlier, gave each of us a copy, and when they passed away their Living Trust and wills made everything very easy for us. I’d like to have things similarly in order for my children.
There’s so much to think about, especially in regards to who will care for our children. The question of who will care for our children is the biggest reason why we haven’t written a will yet. We’re still pondering what to do on that.
Does the question of who will care for your minor children give anyone else great difficulty? Did anyone you didn’t expect to ask you ever ask *you *to care for their children? What would you say if someone asked you to care for seven children?
So how about your wills? Have you written one? Any tips? Did you include any unusual or specific requests in your will?
