When Cupid’s arrow strikes, remember to update your Will
It is often overlooked that a Will made before marriage or civil partnership (unless made under special circumstances) is void when the marriage/civil partnership takes place.
That means that when “Cupid” moves in and nuptials are completed, if you don’t write a new Will you are essentially given a ‘government’ Will when you die.
Your hard earned cash and assets may not go to the loved ones you intended. This can be a particular problem where there are second marriages between partners who have children with previous spouses.
A basic Will costs very little to arrange with the advice of a suitably qualified professional or if you have straightforward circumstances a D-I-Y Will may fit the bill and various providers can be found on the Internet.
